Two-day event - July 22nd & 23rd
If you resonate with the saying 'There's no place like home', you will love this Kimberbell machine embroidery event! During this two-day event, you'll create a heartwarming 22" x 22" pillow inspired by that special home feeling.
You will learn new techniques like piecing and quilting in-the-hoop with background quilting designs, a flanged border, and a variety of beautiful blocks. Piece the heart with dimensional Flexi Foam and add a cozy applique cottage with swirly floral chimney smoke. Stitch a velveteen scarf with fringed tassels next to a poofy hat and darling tote, with a charming weather vane by their side that says "East or West, home is best!".
Limited spots available!
All you have to do is sign up today and we'll send you the exclusive Kimberbell project bag which includes the fabric and embellishments to create these beautiful projects.

no place like homeBy: Robyn on 17 April 2022Absolutely loved it. No dragging my embroidery machine and all the bits and pieces that are needed to complete this project to the shop. Plus any excuse just to stay home to sit and sew all day
