Retro Kimberbell Apr 2021

This class is virtual, so as long as you're local, you can watch from the comfort of your own home or choose to come into the shop for the class. You must be local in order to participate, per Kimberbell's rules.

Join Lori as she gives you tips on each of the four projects this month. We're revisiting the past four years of Kimberbell's Dealer Exclusives, so if you missed any designs, now is the time to get them!

This class will be taught via GoToMeeting (similar to Zoom) so it's easy to participate and interact. It's also recorded so you can watch it at anytime. Bring your USB stick to class to get the designs OR drop off your USB stick before class so the designs can be put on it. Be sure to leave the stick to Lori's attention and note which format you need.

April's designs:

Flamingo Beauties Bench Buddy
Flamingo beauties strut their stuff on this dimensional Bench Buddy. With heads of applique glitter held high, each bird proudly displays unique feathers of soft chenille, cute buttons, and Kimberbell pull flowers. The pillow's sweet theme, "Be your own kind of beautiful," is stitched in simply elegant bean stitches below the fancy friends. Framed within a flange border, the Flamingo Beauties Bench Buddy fits the Kimberbell 8c8 pillow to perfection!

Happy Birthday Mini Wall Hanging
A layer cake with icing, candles, confetti and now Kimberbell--all become part of your birthday wishes! Use applique glitter to make the balloons even brighter and colorful piecing for the border. This adorable wall hanging can be made in three sizes and has all the features we love about quilting, except the work is finished in the hoop on an embroidery machine.

Love at Home: Machine Embroider by Number
These in-the-hoop pieced houses are great to use in many ways--pin cushions, mug rugs, mini quilt blocks, candle mats, and more! Quilting Mayhem carries the lovely scalloped stand it can hang from. Switch it out with other seasonal blocks. Click here to see the stand.

Butterfly Wishes Watercolor Card
In many cultures, the butterfly is a symbol of hope, endurance, change, and new life. Which means this card will be perfect for almost any occasion you want to send happy thoughts or say, "I'm thinking of you." The butterfly wishes design can be stitched in two sizes for 5 x 7" or 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" cards you purchase yourself. After embroidery, use water colors to add shadows of color, then use a blending brush to smooth the pencil lines into brushstrokes, giving a wash of color to each dainty wing. To cover the back of the stitchwork, the design includes a printable insert in both full color and outline images.
