Stitching Templates!

I have been selling stitching templates that I designed for the last couple of months and I have had requests to show you a few ways to use them.  I thought I would do my first tutorial with the Feather Stitch Template.  First you line up your dots on the seam as pictured above.

Using a purple air erase pen, I mark the dots that are on the template.

Here's what the seam should look like after you have it marked.  I use a purple air erase pen because it disappears with the humidity in the air and I don't have to get my project wet to get rid of the marks.

 Using the dots as a guide, you start doing your feather stitch.  The nice thing about using the template, is that you don't have to worry about getting your stitches even on your own!  You just quickly stitch on your seam and it is done perfectly and quickly!

The three pictures above, show the progression down the seam as you stitch using the dots you marked.

Finished seam!

You can buy all three as a set for $20.00 or the Feather Stitch template is available for $7.00.  You can email me at if you are interested!

Talk to you soon,

City Arts Classes for Summer!

This summer I will be taking it a little bit slower so I can have time to make some new samples for classes!

Saturday, June 9th I will be teaching a Silk Ribbon Corsage.  I love making these and they are fun to wear on jackets and hats.  They also make great gifts!  The class is from 1-3 pm, it is $35.00 and all supplies are included.

 Saturday, July 21st, I will be teaching Beginning Needle Tatting.  It is much easier than shuttle tatting and lots of fun!  The class is from 1-3:30, it is $35.00 and all supplies are included.

Saturday August 11, I will teaching Beginning Quilting from 9:30 to 3:30.  You will be learning to make a Trip Around the World quilt using a strip piecing method.  The class is $50.00 and a supply list will be sent to you after enrollment.

If you are interested in any of these classes, you may email me at

Have a great day!
