“ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS”

 

If you have always wanted to “sew something” but don’t know where to begin or don’t have a sewing machine – these classes are for you!   If you don't have a sewing machine, don't worry - its FREE to use one of ours for the day.

 Also a great class to get you going if you have a sewing machine but it is still in its box!!!  Bring yours along and we'll get you on your way.

 We have Absolute Beginners classes for dressmaking and general sewing leading on to patchwork & quilting.

Kick off our Christmas in July classes and events and join us (safely socially-distanced in store) for this fun 4 hour machine embroidery event.


It’s a Sugar Plum Jubilee, starring your favorite characters from The Nutcracker! At this Kimberbell Spark Event, you’ll learn how to machine embroider with fabulous textiles such as Mylar, Applique Glitter, Embroidery Leather, Cuddle® and more, all included in your exclusive Kimberbell Event Project Kit.  Create a festive garland at the event with the Nutcracker, Mouse Prince, Drum, Dome Cake, and Sugar Plum Fairy, then go home with seven additional designs to stitch later in 4×4 and 5×7 hoops! Full-color instructions carefully guide beginners through each and every step, while new layers and textures keep the projects fresh and fun for seasoned embroiderers. With bright candy colors and wonderful dimension, Sugar Plum Jubilee is a sweet celebration!


No embroidery experience needed.  This is a great opportunity to try machine embroidery and learn new techniques.    If you don't yet own an embroidery machine but are contemplating buying one, we can provide a machine for you to use on the day at this Event upon request.  


You are welcome to share a machine and kit with someone special you would like to bring along with you.

Please let us know if you will be sharing a machine and kit.


You will also receive additional designs to stitch later in 4×4 and 5×7 hoops!  Full colour instructions carefully guide beginners through each and every step.
