Embroidery Class

Wednesday, May 4, 2016
10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

These in-the-hoop zipper pouches are PERFECT for organizing small items. The flying geese blocks stitch out with perfect little points and the entire pouch has a nice tailored look. Each zipper pouch is lined and shows no raw seams. What a great way to learn or become more proficient at piecing in the hoop.

Hoop Size for the SMALL Pouch: 5x7 hoop (Embroidery Field Needed: 4.65 x 6.81)

Hoop Size for the MEDIUM Pouch: 6x10 hoop (Embroidery Field Needed: 5.77 x 9.44)

Since embroidery fields vary for different brands and sizes of hoops, please be sure that the embroidery field listed above will be the right size for your particular hoop.

Cindy Dahl will teach this class.
