It’s National Embroidery Month! And oh boy are we celebrating here at Designs in Machine Embroidery. I’m kicking off the month-long celebration with my first (yikes!) Facebook Live event at 1:00 CST on February 1. Gee, did I really agree to do a live event? I mean, I’m comfortable in front of a camera as I’ve done dozens of PBS-TV shows and in-house videos but LIVE? That’s a different story!
I understand it’s better if you have an audience, they tell me, “the more the merrier”. Of course, ‘they’ are not in front of the camera! But hey, if it’s anything like speaking to a group of enthusiastic machine embroiderers at an event, then I think it would be merrier with more people!
To prepare, we straightened out the sewing studio to make it pretty.
And then we posted a sign on the door to discourage anyone from moving anything! Let’s hope that holds true.
So what am I going to talk about? Our Stitch Along with Baby Lock. You’ll find 13 social media posts in February teaching you how to quilt with your embroidery machine, precisely place embroidery designs on fabric and add a personal touch to a custom-designed printed fabric panel.
On Facebook Live, I’ll outline what you can expect throughout February and give you a chance to win a Farmhouse Sentiments kit!
