Take a look at her upcoming clubs and classes:

2022 EMBROIDERY CLUB


This year our Embroidery Club will be working our way through the Kimberbell Cuties Book, featuring 12 table topper designs showcasing simple piecing 
techniques, fun appliques  and darling dimensional details! 

This monthly club is for those who own an embroidery machine. Every month Karin will discuss and demo a different technique using one of the projects from the  book.

Class fee includes class, fabric and accessory kit to complete that monthly project. You will need to purchase the book/cd prior to the January class. Join us for machine embroidery tricks, tips, techniques and lots of embroidery fun!

This is a demonstration only class.

FABULOUS FABRIC BOX MYSTERY

 In this six step mystery program, you will make a quilt top. At the first class (starts in January) you will choose a fabulous Fabric Box. The Fabulous Box will contain twelve 1/3 yard cuts of fabric along with 1-1/2 yards of background fabric. Your box will also contain a 20% off coupon for the fabrics needed to complete your project. The project including the added border is 68” X 84”! Each month you will be given a “clue” (pattern) and class time to work on your clue. You get to decide where to use those fabrics in your quilt - any combination will work! You can even add in fabrics from your stash to make your quilt even more interesting!!  

This class meets monthly for 6 months.

LORI HOLT FLEA MARKET BLOCK OF THE MONTH

Tag along for a fun time with Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet Co!  
The Flea Market book is inspired by Lori’s favorite outing- Thrifting at flea markets and  antique shops where she loves gathering,  re-purposing and uncovering the beauty of old things. Flowers, baskets and churn dashes encircle a brilliant star, symbolizing her guiding principle of “make or do without.”

We will make a variety of projects from the book, plus Karin will keep you posted on new products and projects available from Bee in my Bonnet! 

This 12 month club includes class, tips and tricks to make you project perfect, fabric, trims and the Flea Market book.
