March Echidna P.I.E. Embroidery Project & Lesson

Can you believe we've arrived at month 9 in our year long Platinum Inspiration & Embroidery series? We've covered a ton of topics and if you've printed out all the lessons, projects, and worksheets, your binder is over an 1 1/2" thick!

This month's lesson takes a look at the physics of embroidery and why fill stitch designs are often the most problematic to stitch. Armed with this knowledge you'll make smarter decisions about your design and fabric combinations.

FAQs About Echidna P.I.E.

I've been bombarded with questions concerning Echidna P.I.E. since writing How to Get Your Own Slice of P.I.E. so to clear those up, I've compiled them into this post. As new questions come up, I'll add them here with their answers.

How to Get Your Own Slice of P.I.E.

For the past year I taught a monthly embroidery club at a local quilt shop. Turn out was light where in years past, our Extra Punch program with Cactus Punch could draw crowds of 60+ participants. After speaking with other shops and teachers, I found out their experiences were similar.

What's different? People want to learn on their own schedule and they don't want to travel. They want quality education at discount prices. They want to make only the projects that appeal to them and they don't want to have to lug in a big heavy machine to a crowded classroom.

Join us for a year's worth of embroidery classes based on "A Year of Flowers," which is a collection of flowers of the month digitized as appliqué, redwork, and fill stitches.

Each month we'll discuss a different topic and have a project. These designs were originally designed as a block-of-the-month quilt but as you'll see during the classes, they can be used for much more!

Of course, you'll be able to ask questions and post pictures of your projects.
