Echidna P.I.E. Curriculum Overview

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.

How to Create Your Own Embroidery Designs without Digitizing

How to Create Your Own Embroidery Designs without Digitizing

Did you ever want to make your own embroidery designs but you don't want to digitize?

Well you can when using and combining simpler, small elements into your own compositions. Building Block designs were digitized specifically for this purpose. They are simpler, smaller elements with fewer color changes designed for combining into your own masterpieces.

Fun & Fast Cupcake Snack Mat Project

Looking for something fun and fast? How about this bright and cheerful snack mat? Slightly larger than the popular mug rug, this rectangular mini-placemat at 12" x 9.5" is the perfect size for snacks or desserts.

And wouldn't it be the perfect table dressing for a birthday party? Or how about a set of 4 for some special little girl for hosting her own tea parties?

I love appliqué! And what I love best is how you can change the look of the design by changing the fabric. Fabric can add pattern and texture that's just not possible with thread alone. And, it can work on fabrics that are otherwise not embroiderable like fishnet.

When I saw this collection of super cute penguin artwork, I knew I had to have it and I knew I had to do it as appliqué. With the proliferation of economically priced digital cutters, appliqué has suddenly gotten much easier!

Winter Friends Colored & Quilted Wall Hanging

Winter Friends Colored & Quilted Wall Hanging

Embroidery friends have been after me to do one of those pieced embroidered quilts that have become so popular—you know, one of those over sized scenes that are broken into little squares for embroidering in a small hoop and then pieced into a giant embroidered quilt.

While I do admire them, all I could think of was all that stitching for the sample I'd have to make and it just totally turned me off.

Halloween Luminaries - Pumpkin Carving with a Needle!

Halloween Luminaries - Pumpkin Carving with a Needle!

Did you ever start out with an idea for a project that evolved into something totally different? That's what happened with these Halloween Luminaries!

I was looking for reflective (glow-in-the-dark) fabric and couldn't find what I had in mind. Then I thought of the recent embroidery club I taught on stitching on paper, metal, and wood.
