Join Kathleen on this one day workshop to learn how to make and assemble sleeves for a book. Using an embroidery machine you will embellish the quilted sleeves with falling leaves, using stunning designs created by Kathleen. Beautiful to give as a gift to those hard to buy for friends or maybe just keep for yourself!

This class is ideal for owners of Husqvarna Viking Embroidery machines.

Equipment List
• Basic sewing kit to include pins, scissors etc.
• Machine embroidery needles size 90
• Rotary cutter and ruler if you have one
• Sensor Q Foot or embroidery R foot and a screwdriver
• 240 x 150 Husqvarna embroidery hoop (or another hoop if you don’t have this one as long as it’s no smaller)
• 30 x A4 sheets of paper (we will be folding them in half and stitching them together to make the inner book sleeves)
• Strong white sewing thread and hand sewing needles
• Background fabrics to fit your hoop size – these will form the backgrounds to the embroidered books front and back. This could be a dyed piece of fabric or a fossil fern piece or similar, a plain colour could also be used. Avoid patterned fabric as the embroidery will not show up
• Small pieces of fabrics in complimentary colours to cut rectangles from, to use as a front and back insertion panel on top of your chosen background fabric
• Stitch and tear embroidery stabiliser
• Machine embroidery threads, 40wt – you will need a family of colours (up to 7 colours) ranging from light to dark for this project
• Black and white pre wound bobbins to fit a Husqvarna machine or bobbins wound with bobbin fill
• Very sharp appliqué scissors to cut back appliquéd fabrics
• Glue stick
• Card to pull the embroidery over (the tutor will bring this with her)
• Narrow ribbons in complementary colours for the book ties
