Oakhurst Embroidery Club

Hi to all and I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day.

The next meeting of the Oakhurst Embroidery Club is Monday, May 24th at Bear Paw Quilts at 10:00 a.m. Please RSVP if you will be coming. It is helpful to know approximately how many to expect.

Our focus this month is a fancy neckline design for an ordinary tee shirt. It is anexcellent way to transform a plain shirt into a boutique desire. Emblibrary.com has a great selection of designs or you may have a favorite site to select from. If you choose emblibrary.com, navigate to PROJECTS, then select T-RIFFIC designs. Scroll through the many offerings: Please check to see which size design you need to purchase to do the size of your shirt and your hoop capabilities. Choose and purchase, download in your format, then print a template and you will be ready to embroider. Don't forget to check the 99 cent and free designs available.

You will need:
Medium weight CUTAWAY stabilizer
Solvy topper
Temporary spray
Ball tip needles
Wash away marker
Masking,or painter's tape or pincher hair clips
Machine, embroidery unit, cords, HOOPS, instruction manual and sewing notions.

Bring "sew and tell" items for great inspiration. The exchange item is "Fathers Day".

May is National Apron Day. Let us see your favorites.

The Oakhurst Neighborhood Group of The American Sewing Guild meets at the Bear Paw on the third Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. We are currently making receiving blankets, bibs and shoulder cloths for the Madera County Crisis Center. You will be welcome to sew with us, just bring a sewing machine or serger and neutral thread. If your stash is wanting new purchases, our group will be happy to take any cotton or cotton blend fabrics suitable for cool PJ bottoms. The Crisis Center has many young adults as well as babies. Your donations will not go to waste.

See you at the next meeting.
