Calling all Brother Dream Machine Owners! Join me for a time of learning how to use all the features on your machine and discover its creative potential! Bring your machine and we'll get started! Most of our time together will include walking you through different exercises and other times we will actually be stitching a project out. These classes are FREE if you purchased your machine from McKinney Sew and Vac. Otherwise, there will be a $10 class fee. All are welcome! Space is limited so please call to reserve your seat!

Classic meets comfort with clean lines and modern details! This wardrobe staple is mid-hip length but can be made longer if desired. Sew one up in sweater knit for the perfect winter layer with jeans and flats or go for a dressier version made from a jersey knit. Whether you choose to add buttons, snaps or leave them off altogether, you have endless possibilities! (Pattern includes Women's sizes 0 -24)

Cost: $ 30.00
Kimberbell Journal Covers are composition book covers that turn ordinary writing paper into a noteworthy journal. Each machine embroidered cover is fully lined, durable, and reusable - and best of all, each are made (even pieced!) entirely in-the-hoop! Hoop size needed is 5 x 7 for small, 6 x 10 or 8 x 12 for medium and 9 x 14 for large. You will need to purchase the designs from Carol for the class which are not included in the class fee.

Cost: $ 15.00
This is a fun class that allows you to work with the Cutwork Needles while creating a colorful clutch purse in your 360 x 260 hoop. This is a repeat of an earlier event we held. A kit is included in the class fee!

Join me on this Block-of-the-Month journey to create a keepsake for your special loved one! You will learn many techniques as we go through 12 months of inspirational designs. This is a wonderful way to use up some of your stash. An alternative look can be created by using fewer fabrics in a more neutral color palette. Either way, it will be a cherished keepsake!

Cost: $ 120.00
Time to test the built-in stitches on your machines! Diamonds, Cross Stitches, Triple Ribbon and Radiant (if your machine has the ability) designs combined together make a dramatic statement. I used the Creative Icon but this project can also be done on the Performance Icon, Creative Sensation Pro, Pfaff 4.5 and 5.2 series. Learn how to line up and manipulate the beautiful built-in stitches! We can substitute stitches if your machine does not have the exact ones included. Finished sampler can be used in a project of your choice.

Cost: $ 15.00
This method of making a pillow can be applied to any size pillow form. For this class however, we will complete a 16" x 16" pillow. I'll show you the easiest method for adding a zipper in the back. You may also use "decorator weight" fabric.

Cost: $ 15.00
Floating Stitches create an optical illusion and Pfaff is the only machine on the market that can create them! They are included on the Pfaff Icon, Performance Icon and the new Pfaff Quilt Expression 720 machine. In this class, we will use Sequence Creator to adjust the stitch order. Use your sampler to create a unique project!

If you are intimidated by the idea of machine quilting, I hope you will give it a try and take some time to practice in this class. All the basic information you need will be covered!

This is new set of designs from Nancy Halvorsen. She designed these blocks and projects to celebrate the family and values that keep us close. As you would expect, I'll be adding different techniques to these aside from blanket stitch applique. We'll be using lots of your machine stitches and presser feet! Must purchase the book and patterns from Carol for the class!

This is a free lecture/demo that we are offering once a month for those who purchased from McKinney Sew and Vac.

This modern design features the Kona Cotton Solid 2019 Color of the Year - Splash! This is a great quilt for anyone who wants to try curved piecing. You could also decide to choose a different color palette. With just one block, I like how the pattern allows for trimming down the block before assembling. Grid quilting with your walking foot completes the look!

Cost: $ 15.00
In the first class, we will determine your correct size before cutting the fabric and will cover different methods to achieve good results. All knits are not the same! We will go over all the differences and talk about to use your sewing machine or serger to finish the seams. In the second class, we will complete the top. You will learn how to create a beautiful neckband!

Cost: $ 30.00
This class is basic sewing but you can personalize this in so many ways! We'll discuss all the possibilities. You'll learn the neatest way to finish the zipper top!
