Featured Future EBOM
We're now taking sign-ups for the 2020 Embroidablock of the Month (EBOM) by Hoopsisters. Moroccan Sunset features beautiful in the hoop piecing, applique, and quilting. We will begin the project in March 2020 and run for 10 months. This program is ONLY available with in-store pickup and will feature an optional Sit and Sew each month. Choose your own fabric and thread colors to make the project your own, or let us help you find that perfect combination. Finished size varies with blocks ranging from 5" to 9". A variety of file formats are also available so all machine brands are welcome! Worried about trying an EBOM or need to finish that past one first? We are working on getting together a workshop sit and sew for EBOM participants soon where we can get you going! Sign-up on the RQ website now. (**Picture above includes optional border blocks.)
