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.
Autumn Blessings Bench Buddy It's a season to be grateful, and the Autumn Blessings Bench Buddy is a lovely reminder of life's bounty. With letters made of brilliant orange mylar and simple satin stitches, the sentiment is framed on each side by subtle strips of crocheted edge trim. Make the bench buddy cover, slip it over the Kimberbell 9 1/2 x 5 1/2" pillow insert, and add a vibrant bloom from Kimberbell bouquets for beautiful dimension! This is a cozy decor for every thankful heart. Get it done now so you can enjoy it all autumn long. (see photo above)
Life Is Sweet Tea Towel From strawberry shortcake to strawberry jam, dipped in chocolate or a frosty daiquiri, life is sweeter with strawberries. This delightful tea towel captures all the cuteness of a red ripe strawberry. With Kimberbell's innovative over-the-edge applique technique, fabric is placed on both the front and the back of the tea towel hem. A layer of flexible foam interfacing is sandwiched in between the fruity fabric pieces, which gives dimension and makes the embroidered strawberries seem almost real. Enjoy every delicious stitch!
Floral Cutwork Napkin Reminiscent of vintage lace embroidery, now machine stitched with Kimberbell flair, the floral cutwork napkin will complete any dining room table. Choose contrasting thread colors for a fun luncheon with girlfriends or stitch tone on tone for more formal occasions. An embroidered set would be enchanting at a wedding breakfast and make a lovely heirloom gift for the bride and groom. (Psst...this is one of Lori's favorite designs!)
Tooth Fairy Bench Buddy A visit from the Tooth Fairy is one of childhood's sweetest traditions! Anticipate her midnight arrival with a beautiful bench buddy pillow. With white applique glitter topped by a sparkly crown, the "Tooth" Fairy is stitched in raw-edge applique technique against a quilted background. The sentiment, "Dear Tooth Fairy, let's trade..." is embroidered above the tiny pocket, perfectly sized for baby teeth. Slip the Kimberbell 9 1/2 x 5 1/2" pillow form into the cover, then hang from doorknobs or bedposts with a loop of rick rack trim!
