Machine Embroidery Enhancements

Use beautiful embroidery techniques and designs to make garments and home decor go from pretty to elegantly beautiful.

To see all of my Jenny Haskins Academy projects, go to my page in the 2011 Academy Graduates' Gallery.

You can make these projects, too!  In these classes you can learn the secrets to foolproof embroidery placement and how to use  more of your sewing machine than you ever expected to.  Read more about embroidered decoupage on my tips and techniques page.

Sign up for the newsletter for tips and techniques for more confident and successful machine embroidery.

This serger cover was a previous newsletter project.  The pattern and instructions will soon be for sale in my online store.  With the techniques I will teach you, you will be surprised how easy it is to complete.

Examples of Jenny Haskins techniques classes:

The pillow below is a simple example, involving foundation piecing, decorative stitching, piped ruffles, and 3-dimensional Embroidered Decoupage.


This pillow uses lace-edged napkins or handkerchiefs as the blanks on which you will learn to use applique, reverse applique, sheer applique, and machine cutwork.


Have you ever tried machine embroidered shadowwork?  It is beautiful and the technique is simple.


A wonderful two day workshop quilt demonstrates multiple embroidery and quilting techniques.

This beautiful doily teaches applique techniques and can be completed in an afternoon.
