Embroidery Parties
Anita's Express Education

What happens at an embroidery party?

Here at Anita Goodesign, we are known for our fantastic Embroidery Parties! We pride ourselves in producing Events that our customers and dealers love by providing an educational opportunity to learn embroidery techniques while having fun!

Our events are structured using a team sewing environment, so our partygoers not only learn from their specially trained educator, but also from each other! This also give everyone a chance to get hands-on experience when creating their projects! Partygoers receive not only the designs taught in class, but also additional designs for them to stitch at home included with their full-color tutorial books!

We’ll be exploring and embroidering styles and techniques from the past 100 years. During the event, you’ll get to choose the projects you sew out from the different decades and even choose the educational topics you want to learn about. Come explore with us as we all remember when!

There are SEW many perks when you attend our Remember When Embroidery Party! You’ll be going home with a printed tutorial book with step-by-step instructions for multiple projects we learn about, as well as a design CD with over 40 designs – more than ever! You’ll also receive special pricing on all products at the event and get to see some sneak peeks of new collections we have coming out. It’s a great chance to experience embroidery with hands-on learning while having a TON of fun! See you there!

Anita Goodesign and Education

We take great pride in all of the design collections we produce here every single day. What sets us apart and brings so much value to our collections is our dedication to providing our customers with unmatched embroidery education.

We work continually to innovate our one-of-a-kind home embroidery designs and projects; however, there wouldn’t be any point in creating these designs if we weren’t going to show you exactly how to do them.

We have entire teams dedicated to creating our step-by-step tutorials, developing our educational materials and methods, and sharing all of this knowledge with you at our Embroidery Parties and Workshops. All of this is so you can enjoy beautiful, hand-made-by-you, embroidery designs every day.

Anita’s Workshops

Our Workshops give you the opportunity to learn step-by-step how to complete great projects right from your dealer location! We release a new curriculum every quarter for your dealer to teach at their Workshops. Not only are you able to complete projects in-class, but you’ll also receive a tutorial book and design CD so that you can keep stitching these great designs at home!

There are 6 different unique projects that contain multiple designs. Each of the designs has an heirloom feel to them, allowing you to create fun gifts or even nostalgic items to be used in your own home. From the Votive Bags, to Hand Stitched Pillows to a great Christmas Tote Bag make sure you’re signed up for this 3rd Quarter Anita Goodesign Workshop with your local dealer. By using these heirloom designs you’ll be able to remember joyous holidays of the past and find the winter spirit in times yet to come!

All Aboard!

Every month we release 3 new and exciting projects outside of our normally released collections. These are called Anita’s Express! Each of the projects contains on average between 8 to 16 designs and focuses on a number of techniques. Perhaps you are a quilting genius, but have never tried a free-standing embroidery project, this would be the perfect way to expand your technique library one project at a time. Every single Express project features a cutting edge technique geared towards being completed in 45-90 minutes.

The Anita’s Express tutorials are unparalleled in this industry. We provide clear and precise instructions that take our customers step-by step through the design with detailed explanations. Professional pictures showing every element and comprehensive machine steps make sure that no matter what your learning style is, Anita’s Express will be easy for everyone to understand.

All Access members will be getting Anita’s Express every month in their monthly book starting in January 2017. But, if you are not a member of All Access, there is no need to worry! These collections can be purchased directly from your dealer. Inside the Express folder there is a 20+ page tutorial as well as a CD-Rom with the designs included for that project. Numerous dealers across the United States use Anita’s Express projects as a make-n-take class in their store. This is the perfect opportunity to learn a new technique at your local dealership. Depending on the location you choose, it is also a chance to meet fellow embroiderers while learning all the latest tips and tricks you may not be familiar with yet.

Are you thinking about upgrading or purchasing a different embroidery machine? Some dealers allow customers to use store machines for classes or you can bring your own. Attending an Anita’s Express class also serves as an opportunity to familiarize yourself with other types of machines or learn features to expand your embroidery knowledge on your current machine. Every dealer is different, so be sure to contact your local dealer for details.

We know you are going to love the addition of Anita’s Express to the Anita Goodesign family. This series is not replacing any of our existing educational programs like quarterly workshops and Embroidery Parties, but is simply adding another learning tool.
