I am a machine embroidery and sewing instructor who is somewhat retired! I am always looking for good projects to use in my classes and to show others what I am doing these days. I have found Enchanting Designs Machine Embroidery, who not only have unique machine embroidery designs, but projects my gals (students) can also have fun making. I like to try ways we can use the machine embroidery patterns in other projects too.

When we are ready to pick a new project, I let my gals know where to go tofor machine embroidery inspiration. We tally up what the group wants to do and make sure it is something that is practical and they can use. We have made the Romantic Roses Sewing Caddy and also The Sweet Sewing Caddy. That way my students have useful caddies to carry their items in for a class. The embroidered caddies from have lots of pockets for storing scissors, fabric and whatever else they need for a class day at my home!

When we do a class, each student’s project comes out uniquely, with different choices in fabrics and different colors in the machine embroidery designs to suit each person.

I have also held classes for my gals on the Italian Summer Handbag and the Decorative Gates Sewing Carryall
