We shone the spotlight on a local Vancouver Embroidery teacher earlier last year: Yvonne Menear.


You can also see Yvonne offer a free mini workshop on Craftsy.com.


Her class covers :

Get to know your embroidery machine as expert instructor Yvonne Menear guides you through easily embroidering pillowcases, kitchen towels and even high-pile bath towels!  Start by deconstructing a pillowcase to make room for hooping a pretty redwork rose, and discover Yvonne’s favorite stabilization strategies, including wash-away stabilizer, spray adhesive and basting. Work with a woven kitchen towel and select thread colors that showcase texture in a lovely filled leaf design. Then, conquer a high-pile bath towel with a tulle topper trick that will help you highlight a stunning shell design. Plus, get the exclusive embroidery files featured during class for FREE, sized to fit both 4″ x 4″ and larger hoops.


Check out the blog post we did about Yvonne earlier last year and catch her on Craftsy as well. Yvonne was using a JANOME MC 15000 for the taping for this class.
