December Echidna P.I.E - Holly & Poinsettia

Month 6 – Holly & Poinsettia: 3D Flowers

In this lesson I'll use customizing software to repurpose embroidery designs to create a 3D effect.

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.

Echidna P.I.E. Curriculum Overview

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.
