Class #3:

Travel Jewelry Roll

One of the easiest ways to dress up your outfits is with a few pieces of jewelry, and jewelry rolls let you travel with your favorite pieces of jewelry.

This class is designed to create your own quilted jewelry roll using decorative stitches, zipper pockets and a band to hang your favorite necklace or slide your rings on to. Your jewels will fit in to one convenient place while protecting them from the rest of your suitcase contents.

'Apron Appeal with the Serger'

Aprons – we love them.  They can be frilly or sassy or just plain utilitarian.  They make great gifts – who doesn’t need one? You can finish this cute apron in one session using Babylock Triumph Serger and its special feet and features. 

Learn to create ruffles using the gathering foot plus add beautiful piping with the cording foot. In addition, you will explore the use of decorative threads to create edge finishes using the unique Wave Stitch. You’ll ruffle and pipe and be excited over everything you can do using the Babylock Triumph Serger with Revolution Air threading.  And you don’t need any experience to play with this serger.
