Hoopsisters Quilt for 2014 - Jacobean Journey
Hoopsisters have designed a beautiful quilt for 2014, the Jacobean Journey. We are also going to offer in the same time slot the Feathered Star quilt from 2013. Both quilts are made of perfectly quilted, pieced and decoratively stitched quilt blocks all in the hoop of an embroidery machine. You can choose between the 5 month option and the 10 month option. The block options are 5", 6", 7", 8" and 9" depending on your machine capabilities and the size quilt you would like to create. Slide show step by step directions, multi-formated, monthly classes and video instructions make it possible for everyone with an embroidery machine. I will set up both a weekday and a Saturday date each month. I am planning to start in February if you are interested but cannot start until later we will work with you on a start date. These projects are possible with any brand of embroidery machine as long as it can do a 5" design or larger.
This year I am making available 2 choices of quilts. The Feathered Star which some did last year and the Jacobean Journey which is new for 2014 in both cases you can choose between the 5 month option and the 10 month option, with the additional choice of a wall hanging for the Feathered Star. I will be starting the first classes on January 25th 10am or January 30th 10am or 1pm. The fee for either option will be $130 which includes a USB bracelet to collect your designs and instructions. All supplies needed, will be available at The Yardstick. I will be starting another set of classes on March 22nd and March 27th.
2013 Feathered Star Quilt is finished. Come view our quilt on display in the store. Quilt shown is half of the quilt.
