Here are some on our property very early morning before anyone else was stirring.
We enjoyed an Orientation Social Dinner together on Friday evening, then commenced yesterday morning. All set up in our warehouse and busily sewing. Plenty of light! Apologies, fluorescent lighting photographing well!
Eager students listen intently as they learn about different stabilizers and when to use them and how to hoop.
Everyone made a name tag to wear, learning lettering, placement and borders.
Making a folder cover for all their class notes, using Mylar Embroidery Sheet, sewing over Puffy Foam and Velvet Embroidery whilst learning positioning.
This design given to the students from Julie Hall's "Crewel Intentions" CD.
Purely Gates Embroidery specializes in designs suitable for embroidering with Mylar whilst many others have a few.
The day closed with open house for everyone enjoying a barbeque and drinks whilst getting to know each other in social surroundings.
These are just some of the projects from Day One!
