Mother's Day Anita Goodesign Embroidery Party

Last weekend was F. U. N!!! My friend Lori and I spent all day Friday and Saturday attending the Anita Goodesign Embroidery Party hosted by Linda Z's. we made it into a total girl time by getting a local hotel room, wine and sushi dinner. As you can imagine after all day spent doing embroidery we also spent all evening chatting about it to!

The seminar had about 150 participants and the sewing was done in a round Robbin style. Each table had a Brother Quatro and in the back of the room was a line of 10 needle machines. Each station had about 5 attendees and there was one 'helper' for every 3 tables.

Being newbies to the world of embroidery Lori and I were just soaking up all the info! Talk about learning tons of techniques! And the samples, ideas were floating around everywhere. Such a great atmosphere! Our seminar was taught by Steve Wilson, the owner of Anita Goodesign. A great personality and so knowledgable!

In total we did 8 projects and took turns piloting and co- piloting the machine. At the end we divided up the projects and took them home. We made a traditional quilt block, a zippered cupcake bag, Cutwork napkin corner, free standing lace pin, a Mylar bookmark, a Trapunto block, a confetti flower and a crazy quilting design.

Lunch, snacks and beverages were provided both days along with lots of freebies and giveaways. And the shopping, oh what a great selection of designs! As usual, Linda Z's did an excellent job!
