See the latest technology in Sewing, Serging and Embroidery with two of the country's most experienced sewing teachers, Pam Damour and Betty Mitchell! Here's what we have planned:
Thursday, 9/14, 5:30pm - 7:30pm: Dueling Sewing Machines
Pam and Betty challenge each other to see who can sew it better: Pam on the Destiny, or Betty on the Ovation. Join the fun as they show several accessory feet and demonstrate many of their signature finishing techniques.
Friday & Saturday, 9/15 & 9:16, 10am - 4:30pm:
We will be making a pillow, using Baby Lock Destiny machines to make one side of the pillow, and Ovations to make the other side.
In the serger area, Pam will teach several finishing techniques from their newest book "Power Serger". You will learn how to make four blocks that can be made into a pillow or table runner. The serger techniques will include serger lace, prairie points, wave stitch, pleated windows, pin tucks, zipper insertions, piping and more.
In the Destiny room you will learn how to use the IQ designer, learning how to clean up a scan, how to re-size a design, create an appliqué, insert color changes, add fill stitches and more. You will also learn piping and zipper insertion.
At the end of day two when everyone has finished their pillows, Betty & Pam will judge the finalists, and will provide a gift to the winner!
We will be providing all the machines and supplies for this event, plus lunch and snacks on Friday and Saturday.
