Hello everyone, I hope you are staying dry in this weather. Wasn't Sunday a lovely day!
This month’s Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, March 13 from 9:30 to 11:30 and again on Friday, March 18 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.
Easter is now on the horizon and with that comes eggs and other gifts. To have time to stitch out a bunch before Easter, this month we are going to make small holders with an Easter theme. The holder will have the “arms” covering the head to close the holder.
There are a number of websites that provide clipart for the Cricut or Silhouette machines to cut paper, but we can use these same designs for fabric instead. Using the Express Design wizard we will create the basic shapes and then use built in stitches to embellish. They stitch out quickly.
Here's what I've stitched out, but haven't rinsed out the stabilizer yet:
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. The coupon code for having paid for the full year has changed this year, so if you have prepaid and don't have the new code, let me know.
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.
