ARVADA Landscape Mug Rugs with Patten Laurel
August 4 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm$40.00
Are you new to machine embroidery or just want to learn something new? Join embroidery expert Patten Laurel and learn how to make these cute coasters all IN YOUR HOOP with your embroidery machine. Several techniques will be taught in the class- applique, turn and flip, quilting in the hoop, and attaching backing to make a complete design “in the hoop” (ITH). Each coaster will be finished in one hooping! We will be making at least two of the 4 coaster designs in class, starting with the Cactus and Lake mug rugs, and progressing to the others if time allows. Pre-made kits purchased from Vacuums R Us will include supplies for all 4 mug rugs. You will receive all four designs in 3 sizes (4×4, 5×5, 6×6) so even if you have a small hoop machine, you can make these cute coasters! Start now for holiday gift sets!
Bring your embroidery machine, in good working order (don’t forget your power cord and a 4×4 hoop!); small scissors to trim up close (duck bill if you have them); assorted embroidery threads in blues, greens, browns, yellow, and white; a bobbin wound with white; and at least 2 empty bobbins for the outside border of the coaster.
The embroidery design will be sent by email and should be downloaded to your machine or on a USB stick. Please note: we will ONLY be doing the 4×4 size coasters in class. In case you do not get the download by email, please bring a USB stick and know how to transfer it to your embroidery machine.
Designs are provided in 9 different embroidery formats. The formats included are: DST, EXP*, HUS, JEF, PEC, PES, VIP, VP3, and XXX.
* BMP and INF files are also provided, these are recommended to be used with the EXP files for Bernina machines.
SVG files are included for cutting machines. Please note the SVG format can be converted to FCM within the Brother Scan n Cut software if required.
