Eight-Week Class | Machine Embroidery Basics


Do you own a sewing machine with embroidery capabilities, but don’t know (or can’t remember) how to use it? This beginning course covers the exciting basics of machine embroidery. Learn to work with proper tools, threads and stabilizers and to understand stitching techniques. Through instructor-led projects, you’ll learn the basic skills needed to succeed — and you’ll receive digital designs to keep.

Supplies required: a serviced sewing machine with embroidery capabilities (sewing and embroidery combo machines only — no multi-needle machines), electric cord, foot pedal, machine manual and all tools, feet, hoops and accessories that came with your machine. 

An instructor-provided kit that includes threads, scissors, needles, bobbins, several types of stabilizers and three of instructor Amber Layne’s favorite sewing tools must be purchased ($102) on the first night of class. Beyond the required kit, you will need additional fabric and notions that will be discussed in class.

Open Studio time is included with registration. Open Studio allows currently enrolled students to work on their projects in Oklahoma Contemporary’s studios outside of class meetings. Times vary weekly can be booked two weeks in advance.
