Attention all machine embroidery enthusiasts! All of our Discount Fabric Warehouse locations will be offering a special workshop coming in July! We’ll be offering the DIME Vintage Chic event at each of our stores!
Join DIME (Designs in Machine Embroidery) educator, Ashley Jones, at your local Discount Fabric Warehouse store!
Vintage Chic combines the nostalgic look of hand embroidery but with today’s technology. It’s vintage like your great-grandmother’s hand stitched linens but it’s also relevant and popular for today’s fashions. You’ve seen the look at big box retailers— on men’s wear, apparel in bold colors, bright children’s wear, home décor & accessories and souvenirs.
Here are just some of the topics covered at this workshop:
• Hoop everything from a hat to a terrycloth towel
• Discover the industry’s preferred method of placement
• Measure and mark without leaving a trace
• Avoid misplaced embroidery like a pro
• Turn words into artwork
• Edit designs on the fly
• Multiply your stash
• Master continuous embroidery
• Unmask the secrets of embroidery on prints, nubby knits and
• Create bold topstitching
• Learn how to work with heavy thread and duplicate the
popular matte finish
