Join us for HoopSisters' 2019 Embroidery Block of the Month. Fleur de Lis is a quilt that is made with your embroidery machine. You will be piecing, appliqueing, and quilting in the hoop.

The size of the quilt depends on the size hoop you use and whether or not you choose to do the optional border blocks. Block sizes are 5”, 6”, 7”, 8”, or 9”. So, you can make a wallhanging size to king-size quilt.

The class fee is $75.00. There is an additional fee of $35.00 per month for the embroidery designs.

You can print out a basic supply list here, but you will need to come into the store for the fabric supply list. You'll want to get a brief explanation of how it all works and how to figure out how much fabric to purchase for your project.
