When "pucker up" is not a good thing!
Eight years ago, I wrote a post called Why Does My Embroidery Pucker (find it linked at the end of this post) and during the recently wrapped 2017 Virtual Sewing, Quilt, and Embroidery Expo, I focused on pucker problems in my two-part class called Professional Pointers for Pucker Prevention.
Monday, September 11 is the opening day of this year's 2nd Annual Virtual Sewing, Quilting, and Embroidery Expo.
Are you coming? All you need is a computer or mobile device and an internet connection! And it's totally FREE!
Most of last year's presenters are back again this year with all new classes on sewing, quilting. and of course, embroidery!
Have you ever wondered if it's easy to create free-standing lace on your embroidery machine? Have you tried stitching lace and been disappointed in the results?
May is the eleventh month in our Birth Month Flowers of the Year series and therefore the next to last block in this block of the month quilt.
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!

I'm frequently asked when will I come and teach at a certain place. We find out how many are interested but then only a handful of those people actually show up. And it's not just me.
This month's project we're going quick and easy with lovely little double drawstring bags with French seams sewn in sheer fabrics. I used chiffon for the yellow bag with the marigold and batiste for the all white bag with the cosmos. Wouldn't these make beautiful hostess gifts for a bride's breakfast?
Since Echidna P.I.E. is a new concept and we want to meet your needs and expectations, we've listened to you and made some enhancements to the program. The following email was sent to Echidna Platinum members from Gary Walker at Echidna. I'm reposting it here to answer questions.
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.
