Monday, September 14th, 2015

We are excited to host a software event with freelance educator, Soni Grint. Soni Grint has been a sewer since she was 8 years old. Her embroidery career began when she combined her formal education (M.S. Optical Physics / Computers) and her love of fabric and sewing. She started working with a sewing machine dealership in San Diego, California. Moved to central California where she worked a short time for White Sewing Machines.

She has traveled frequently to the product developers in both Sweden and London England. Soni lived in Jonkoping Sweden for 2 years as she headed up Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff's international education departments. After coming back to the United States, she continued with her love of embroidery and sewing while heading up the Software department of Husqvarna Viking and Pfaff, eventually becoming the Global Product Manager for this division.

Hoopsisters classes

Hoopsisters classes are planned for the last Saturday in each month, so plan to come and work on the quilt you have started Feathered Star, Jacobean Journey or start the new one for this year Sewn Seeds. It is a lot of fun to create your quilt blocks totally in the hoop. That included any piecing, applique, embroidery, quilting and any other techniques the sisters think up. Each year there is a new twist to increase our knowledge and flexibility. If you want to join and need to meet on a week day let me know and I will schedule a week day also.
