Stitch Sample Book.KTX

We will make one page of business card size samples of stitches that are available on your sewing machine. If time allows, we will make a second page, and you can continue the process at home with your own supplies.  Bonus: I’ll demonstrate how I organized embroidery design samples from the built-in designs in my machine. Please see pictures for clarification. 

SUPPLIES: (Printer Friendly Version)
Sewing machine

Power cord and foot control

Open-toe presser foot 

General sewing presser foot

Any other presser feet you need for stitch samples you want to make

Small scissors for snipping threads

At least two bobbins

Rotary cutter. If you are concerned about cutting cardstock with the same blade you use for fabric, please bring a second cutter with a blade that you will use just for paper cutting. I started with a brand new blade and used it for everything with no problem. 

Rulers: 6 x 6 or smaller for trimming, 6 x 24 for fabric.
Nice to have but not necessary:  4.5 x 12

Fat quarter of fabric- solid color. You will need more if you want to make a lot of samples. (I used about 3 yards of muslin in total)

Fusible tear-away stabilizer- I used 15” OESD fusible tear-away

Contrasting thread so stitch samples will show clearly- 50 wt. cotton is great. Poly cotton ok, too. I don’t recommend embroidery thread. 

White bobbin thread- I used Bottom Line. 50 wt is fine. OESD bobbin thread fine, too. Poly cotton works, too. I do not recommend embroidery thread. 

Thread that matches your fabric- 50 wt. cotton. Poly cotton ok. I don’t recommend embroidery thread. 

Ultra fine sharpie. One in a contrasting color to fabric choice. I used black. 

Ultra fine sharpie for business cards. I used red to match my thread. 

If you want to make the whole project, you will need white cardstock (65 lb), a 3” binder, insertable business card pages, dividers and labels. The best prices I found were on Amazon.
