What happens when you put 220 men and women in a room at the Ontario Convention Center, with 70 embroidery machines, and Steve Wilson of Anita Goodesign embroidery designs?
A lot of fun.
Steve Wilson brought samples of his current design collections and new collections that will be released in the next couple of months. This month, Anita Goodesign released a new type of collection that will incorporate embroidery and easy sewing techniques. The tutorials have pictures and easy to follow step-by-step directions.
Attendees learned new techniques as they stitched out seven different projects during the two day event. These techniques and projects included a Folded Fabric Zipper Purse, a Dimensional Flower using Heat ‘n‘ Shrink, how to position a design so it fits perfectly into the corner of a napkin, cutwork, appliqué and more.
What would a party be without prizes? George Moore and Steve Wilson gave out lots of them. They also had great deals on machines, software, thread, and notions. Mark your calendar to join us next year on November 3rd and 4th.
