Hello everyone, I hope you are all staying safe and warm. This month’s Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, February 14 from 9:30 to 11:30 am and again on Friday, February 19 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
I don’t know about you, but my kitchen hand and tea towels need an update. So this month I've decided to make a variety of towel toppers. Our software has a lot of built in appliquéd frames that can be used for this purpose with a little imagination. First we will take two frame styles, resize each and put together for a quick holder. The buttonhole stitch built into our machines works to hold the topper onto a hook or add a button for a handle. Then we will use a clipart drawing to make another variation in one piece and use one of the SuperDesign buttonholes to close. Lastly we will make one that has a hole for a door handle and slots to slide a towel into instead of attaching. They can all be embellished to suit your decor or mood.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
In order to get the most out of the Zoom session, we found that having two devices was a benefit. You can use your laptop to do the lesson with me and then have the Zoom meeting on a tablet or even smart phone to see what I'm doing on my screen. If you don't have two devices, you can use two windows on the one screen, but it did take some finagling to get it working properly. We found it useful that the device with your zoom session has voice capability.
If you plan to join me for this month’s Software Club, please sign up online at our website www.sew-jos.ca/classes.htm so that I can forward you the instructions and handouts beforehand as well as provide the Zoom information. If you haven't prepaid for the year, the fee is $15.
If you have prepaid and attending, the same coupon code as last year will work. If you haven't yet prepaid for the year, but wish to, you can do so online by searching for Annual or by giving the store a call and paying over the phone.
Let me know if you can't find the appropriate coupon code or if you have any issues. If you have stitched out any previous sessions’ design(s) please have it (them) close at hand as well, or any show and tell. We all like to see what you have been doing.
Hope to see you online. If you can't make it on these dates, I will record the session for later viewing so even if you can't actually join us on one of these sessions, you can still sign up and access the information.
