Hi All,

In this current time where remaining connected is so important we are embracing ways to support connectedness and to remain in touch with as many as possible through continued learning together. This is in keeping with our focus based around supporting "a journey of shared learning".

One avenue we have chosen is through putting together a limited number of small kits that can be made at home with results of your creations shared online to remain connected.

Kits include materials & instructions and are for personal use only and not for resale.  

This is particularly pertinent for our first kit which includes an embroidery from the *Easter Parade Machine Embroidery Collection*, created on our Centre's new Pfaff Creative Icon machine.  Special permission to use the designs for applique to your bag has been granted by Zundt Design Ltd & Tracey Sims.

[*RSLC acknowledges all rights reserved to Zundt Design Ltd & Tracey Sims for use of designs from this collection.  Please contact RSLC if you would like to purchase this delightful collection.]

Our first kit… “If Only… Easy Drawstring Bag” kit includes prepared instructions that have been stitched out in the Sample shown on our Pfaff Quilt Expression 720.  However, any sewing machine in good working order with straight stitch, and preferably zigzag/blanket stitch for applique, is fine.  If you have been thinking about a machine for yourself, please don’t hesitate to ask for help as it can be quite daunting to know “what’s important to you” with so many differences in machine offerings.

The Sample shows a bunny chasing a lady beetle, but for your pack you can choose either a bunny or chicken embroidery (photo also included with the Kit Instructions).

Please remember to include whether you would like a “Chicken” or “Bunny” in your Kit and we will add complementary fabrics to surprise you when you open your package.

Kits are available for purchase with a limit of one per person.
