*** Minimum hoop size is 5X7″ Larger is fine!

In this class we will use Sarah Vedeler’s design set to create her beautiful Advent Calendar. I made four of these for children as gifts last year and cannot wait to fill them this year! This is a great way to learn how to embroider applique in the hoop. I will show you how to make the stockings and then applique them on to the background fabric. I will also teach you how to create the long border pieces. You will leave class confident to complete the rest of your blocks at home, I will also demonstrate how to assemble all of your pieces. I hope you will join me in making this fun piece, I can’t wait to show you my beach themed version!

Designs in your format on a usb stick
Embroidery machine (complete with emb foot and power cord!)
hoop to accommodate 5X7design (if you also have larger hoops bring those as well!}
Embroidery needles chrome 75/11

Decide if you want to follow Sarah’s version or have all different stockings as I did. This will affect your fabric numbers and how you should cut it.
NOTE* You do not have to cut fabric prior to class, maybe you have not decided how you want to proceed, that is fine! Please cut your batting and steam a seam though, it will save you time in class!

*This class is limited to 4 students in order to accommodate the current social distancing guide lines in place. I am excited to be able to offer this class at this point but also wish to be clear that due to the restrictions in place, a mask will be required to be worn and if you have any health concerns please do not risk exposing others. We want to be a part of reopening things in a positive and safe manner. I cannot wait to be working with you all again!
