July Embroidery Club

Christmas is July!

Is it a little early to worry about the Holidays?  Never! Preparing beautiful holiday gifts for your home, friends, or family takes time and planning; and now is the time to plan.
The towel toppers I have found for you this month are the most sensible I have ever made. And, guess what?  They are made entirely in the hoop!  Plus, each towel topper design comes with a matching design for the towel that hangs from topper.  Oh, there are so many designs to choose from!  We will be making the towel topper in club and reviewing embroidering on toweling.
Club dates at  Amelia's Fabric and Yarn Shoppe are Tuesday, July 17 at 1:00pm or Thursday, July 19 at 5:00 pm.
