In the hoop with Embroidery Garden:
7 years ago I started Embroidery Garden. I specialize in creating original and unique in the hoop designs for machine embroidery. I’m a national independent educator traveling across the country teaching my designs at various stores and venues. I’ve authored several magazine articles and recently had a book, “Embroidery Garden’s MDC Projects” published by Brother International. I’ve developed innovative techniques and ideas that reflect in my designs and teaching. I truly enjoy what I do.
Have you heard the phrase ‘in the hoop’ (ITH) and wondered what it is? Designer Reen Wilcoxson will explain what ITH machine embroidery designs are and take you through the steps stitching them. Reen is an industry leader in designing and teaching ITH across the country. She will show you how the embroidery machine can insert a zipper and create a fully lined bag with no exposed seams inside using one of her exclusive designs all completed in the hoop. Reen will also include how the Brother ScanNCut can be incorporated to make a very unique ITH item.
