April Fool’s Day

April Fool’s day is right around the corner with Easter poking its head out of the closet. I love April Fool’s Day because it is a time to play pranks and just be silly or stitch the whole day away.

Embroidery Central will be hosting an all day Sit n’ Stitch from noon to 8 pm in Logan, Utah. It costs $30 and includes a one color wonder pattern (floss in one color and pattern) and lunch. This is a great time for stitchers to get together and just relax.

If you don’t stitch but would like to see what the excitement is about, go ahead and stop by, you just might find a new hobby.

Sit n’ Stitch

Just a friendly reminder that Embroidery Central will be hosting their weekly Sit n’ Stitch. It starts at 6 pm and goes until 8 pm. If you would like to see what projects get finished within the month, check out their online finishers gallery.

On April 1st, they will be holding an all day Sit n’ Stitch. The cost is $30 for the project and lunch. This event starts at 11 am.

Embroidery Central is located in Logan, Utah.

Upcoming Events

Every Wednesday night at Embroidery Central, Logan, Utah, is Stitch night. It starts at 6 pm and goes to 8 pm, everyone is welcome.

Embroidery Central has been so busy that they have added a beginner’s hard hanger class on Saturdays at 1 pm.

There are also several classes coming up next month including tatting, bobbin lace, and a framing class.  I will get these posted next week. Seating is limited so sign up asap.

There is also the Project of the Month (POM) which is available on the first of every month. I will get Aprils posted next week.

The finishing challenge was such a big hit last year that Embroidery Central has carried it over to this year.  You earn points based on your skill level and the difficulty of the project.  Prizes will be awarded at the end of the year.

They are also rewarding stitchers who donate ornaments for their Christmas Tree.  For every ornament donated, you receive two dollars on your punch card and points for the finishing challenge. Remember, these ornaments will be sold at November Fest in Logan, Utah with all of the proceeds going to Sub for Santa.

So come on out and show off your talent! Happy stitching!

Class – Bobbin Lace

Embroidery Central will be having a bobbin lace class this Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 at 2pm. A beginner kit will cost $55. If you already have the supplies, the cost of the class is $10 with a project fee of $5.

What is bobbin lace? Bobbin lace also known as pillow lace and bone lace is the braiding or weaving of threads to create beautiful hand made lace.  The threads are wound onto bobbins created for this type of  lace making.  This is a family fun event and seating is limited. Call (435) 755-0486 to sign up for the class. I should also mention that this event is in Logan, Utah.

If you want to just see what the class is about, just swing on by and poke your head in the class room. We would love to visit with you and show off our talents.

Happy Stitching!

Upcoming Events

For those of you who are interested, I finally added the Copyrights Information pdf to my last post. I hope you all take a quick look at it and respect the copyright laws as they pertain to needlework.

Now for the fun announcement.  Embroidery Central (EC) is holding a special Valentine Sit n Stitch February 13th. $25 will buy the complete kit including pattern, floss, mounting board, a frame. I quote from the ad, “We will have a great selection of Valentine Heart patterns and plenty of colors and sizes of fabric to choose from, including 28 count linen, 14 count Aida, and 10 Count Tula.” This way you have everything you need to stitch and finish your project in one day.

That’s right folks, one day!

This special Sit n Stitch starts at 12 pm and goes until 6 pm.  Of course, stitch night starts at 6  – 8 pm so you are more than welcome to stay.
