Pam Novak, who worked for Boyd's Sewing Center for over 16 years as Educational Directress and a Viking Sewing Specialist teacher, retired in December of 2012. She really missed seeing everyone, and decided to start her Embroidery Club again. Pam is Viking "Teacher Tech', certified, a Viking Educator, and has spent countless hours in specialized Viking training courses to be able to present a very comprehensive embroidery program for you.

Embroidery Club is now open to all makes and models of machines; you will need to be familiar with setting up embroidery for your machine. You must be able to adjust thread tension and have recent practice with embroidery on your machine. We recommend you bring your manual when you come. The club is intended for making projects, not a class on how to use your machine. Each month a new hands on project will be taught . You will learn about the proper stabilizers for the project, templating, threads, needles, how to use the embroidery features on your machine, and (Sew) much more. Come have a day full of fun, meet new people, and learn new embroidery techniques.
