Embroider, Quilt & Sew – All in the Hoop

If you’re like me, I know that you like to give personalized gifts. For the stitchers on your list, create an embroidered and quilted pincushion with the ease and convenience of a computerized embroidery machine. All the stitching is done in the hoop! It’s amazing—I’d like to show you how.

    Several years ago, you had a lady who demonstrated how to finish both top and back of a quilt or jacket by folding seams and top stitching. I think she had written a book or created patterns. Can you tell me how to find her information. I am now ready to make a quilt using her techniques. Thanks for your help. Julia

    I’ve just discovered this spot much to my pleasure. Since our area public television no longer includes any sewing or quilting programs, this is especially meaningful to me. Be assured that I will be passing the word to all of the guild members. Thank you so very much.

    Hi Nancy, You are very welcome. I love your videos. After I watched this video I went shopping on you store site. I have shopped there before and have been very pleased with everything I have ever purchased. I am so glad that you share your talents with all of us. You are such an excellent teacher. The best on the web!

    WILL THIS REALLY WORK WITH THE DESIGNER DIAMOND FROM HUSQVARNA. WHAT IS THE PRICE?

  13. Nancy Says:

    August 9th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Cindy, the embroidery is available in all the formats. By all means, it will work on your Pfaff.

  14. Nancy Says:

    August 9th, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Thanks, Cathy, for answering Lou Ann!

  15. Cindy Says:

    August 9th, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Loved the video, but I’m an avid Pfaff owner. Will it work?

  16. Cathy Says:

    August 9th, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    This reply is to Lou Ann: I have a Husqvarna SE with the embroidery arm. Quite a while ago I purchased the book that was mentioned in this Nancy Zeiman video. The designs will work just fine with your Husqvarna SE. You just need to load the CD into your home computer and transfer the designs to the flash drive that came with your machine. Of course, if you do not have the embroidery arm you don’t have the capability to do embroidery. It can be purchased separately. No I do not work for Husqvarna! Good luck. The projects in the book are a lot of fun. And Nancy’s step by step instructional video madetehm even simpler than teh book does.

    This is a great book. Bought it a couple months ago and have made 3 of the projects and love them.

    Is there a link to where I can order/download the design(s)? How many “blocks” are in the set? Thanks,

    There are no dealers listed in my state -is there another way for us to participate?

  22. Lou Ann Says:

    August 9th, 2011 at 7:08 am

    I would love to be able to do that on my embroidery machine but I have a Husqvarna SE. Do they work on mine?
    It would be great to be able to make those for gifts.

    This is a great video! The completed project looks so pretty and complicated, but the video breaks each step down into something very doable, even for beginners. Love the pincushion! It would be a great gift item. This project also lends itself very well to lots of variations – hot pads, coasters, drawer sachets, maybe even book covers. Hmmm… where shall we begin? Thank you for sharing this video and project!

  24. Rena M Says:

    Thank you for this video. It really makes the technique much more understandable. I haven’t yet tried doing this type of work because it seemed too complicated, but your video dispels that fear. Again, thanks much for posting this. I’m definitely getting the book and trying my hand at “all in the hoop”

  25. Darlene Says:

    Thank you for sharing ‘in the hoop’ techniques. Seeing the technique helps eliminate the frustration and lack of understanding. It also encourages me to give it a try.

    Really enjoy the video. It is awsome to be able to sit at home and watch the abilities of the embroidery techniques. Keep them coming. Thanks so much!
