This will be a sew out instructional class. We will build each project that will walk you through all the steps to create a beautiful project. You will get your KimberBell files and instructions on the USB drive you must bring to class. Don't be overwhelmed by the number of steps in each design. They are each small steps that are easy to follow along. You will see us build the project showing each step with you and you will have full color instructions to follow at home. And although there are a number of color changes in the design, that is only meant to 'tell the machine to stop' between steps. Usually only 1 or 2 thread changes are needed. If you lose track of which step you are on, your step by step directions include an icon indicating which step from the embroidery design corresponds with that specific step in the directions.
