    Travel Patches by The Whiskey Ginger



          Embroidery Club March 2024

Welcome to Embroidery Club 2024! I am very excited that you will be joining me on this exciting embroidery adventure. My goals for the club are that you will increase your knowledge of machine embroidery and experiment with new kinds of projects this year. It is going to be a fun year.

For June’s Embroidery Club we are going to make embroidered patches. Once finished, these patches could be ironed on. This is useful if you have a hard to hoop item that you would like to add decorations too. We will also learn how to turn our patches into coasters. There are several methods to make patches. We are going to focus on patches that start with a fabric base. I chose to use designs from OESD #80368 Travel Patches by The Whiskey Ginger. Students can use other designs if they start with a fabric base and are finished on the outside edge with a heavy satin stitch.
