Get In The Hoop!

Don’t let the name of the class fool you; it’s not just about embroidery. With Embroidery Made Easy II you don’t have to wonder about using different threads and fabrics in conjunction with our beautiful embroidery designs. You don’t have to ask how we do our time-, money-, and fabric-saving quilting – all in the hoop! Nor do you have to question how we create our easy in the hoop projects… you’ll find all this out and sew much more in this new class!

Blanket stitch appliqué, cutwork, and freestanding lace are just some of the popular embroidery techniques that will be included in this class. Our In the Hoop projects will have you thinking outside of the hoop! Some the designs included in the AU: 102 class are zippered bags in the hoop, creating unique cards, and homey kitchen décor. There are sew many designs that our hoop runneth over…and yours will too!

As with all of our Anita University classes, the 102 is designed for beginners to experts alike; everyone will learn something and walk away with more than they started with.

Meet the Educator

Anita Goodesign educator Taylor Henderson

Taylor Henderson

Taylor has been working for Anita Goodesign for over 11 years. Prior to coming to Anita Goodesign, he was an Account Manager in corporate America. When the opportunity to work for Stephen presented itself, he jumped at the chance! He knew this was a great way to let his creativity, love for laughing, and enjoyment of people come together in a perfect crazy mix…and he hasn’t regretted it since!

He loves being able to work on both the Stephen Wilson Studio side and the Anita Goodesign side, as both allow him to still be creative, laugh and be around amazing people who appreciate the art of embroidery.

What is the Stephen Wilson Studio? We appreciate you asking! A little over 5 years ago, Stephen began merging his love of embroidery, fashion, and art into one and the Stephen Wilson Studio was born. He takes bags, boxes, and scarves from luxury designer brands, mixes in the embroidery techniques we all know (free motion, free standing designs, applique) and creates one-of-a kind pieces. He also does the same with record albums, he stitches directly through the record cover itself! With his digitizing skills and artistic eye, Stephen reimagines the album artwork to give it a new life.
