Lisa's Craftsy Classes

Big Embroidery With a Small Hoop

Think (and stitch) outside the hoop with embroidery expert Lisa Shaw as your guide. Get started with a charming felt purse as you learn how to embellish a blank purse with an all-over design, regardless of hoop size. Discover tips for aligning templates, and delve into multi-hooping to adorn a plush towel with a three-part design. Dress up a denim shirt with organic designs as Lisa introduces you to her secret weapon, a trick that practically auto-aligns templates for you! You’ll also learn to use embroidery software to add alignment lines to any file and build on new skills to make an adorable tech case, extra-large embroidery and even a freestanding continuous lace border. Never be limited by your hoop size again. Learn insider tips and tricks that will take your embroidery as far as your imagination desires!
