Deborah's Craftsy Classes

Machine Embroidery With Knits

Learn to make professional-looking embroidered knits from your home embroidery machine. Deborah Jones will teach you how to hoop, stabilize and handle even the trickiest of knit fabrics, giving you the poise to create commercial-quality golf shirts, sweatshirts, swimsuits, fleece blankets and more. Learn to assess the stabilizing needs of your knit fabric, no matter how stretchy it is, and hoop it without the fear of crooked designs or hoop burn. Practice your skills with the six embroidery designs included with your class materials.


Machine Embroidery With Terrycloth and More

Discover the joy of embroidering towels, holiday stockings, stuffed animals and so much more. Deborah Jones walks you through hooping, handling and stabilizing techniques for a wide range of specialty textured fabrics, including stitching and finishing techniques that will make your projects stand out from the crowd. This class takes your basic machine embroidery skills to the next level, teaching you the ins and outs of fabrics that so many of us would love to embroider but feel intimidated to try.
