Welcome to an Embroidery Journey
of a Lifetime
The Embroidery Essentials course was designed to help you master your embroidery machine while successfully stitching out 15 different embroidery design techniques. This online course, hosted by Sara Snuggerud of SewingMastery.com, is over 3 1/2 hours of in-depth embroidery knowledge with step-by-step instructions for every embroidery technique.
The Embroidery Essentials course is designed to work with ANY brand of embroidery and ANY model of embroidery machine. By completing each embroidery technique we guarantee that you will have worked through more areas of your embroidery machine than most embroidery machine owners. The repetition of these specific techniques throughout this online course will solidify the knowledge you learn for ease of your own future embroidery projects.
