Stitch your favorite Dancing Lady (or the entire collection), bring to the Expo and you could win a prize!
The Dancing Lady designs, which Original Sewing & Quilt Expo introduced to the public in 2004, are now available for you to embroider at home! They’ve been digitized by our friends at Creative DRAWings
® in plenty of time for you to bring them to life for the Fall 2011 Original Sewing & Quilt Expo events. We started with several of our favorite graphic images and let Creative DRAWings® do the rest – apply stitches, underlay and compensation.
As you can see, the Dancing Lady is the main focus in all the designs. She holds aloft other elements, representing some of the categories of our craft – garment sewing, home décor, quiltmaking and machine embroidery – which have been given different fill patterns and styles. We see the image of Mom’s dress form with a ribbed fabric covering – with Creative DRAWings’® version, you’ll stitch out a similar pattern. The quilt not only has different block types, it also has fill patterns incorporated into the stitches to give the look of a patterned fabric. The bolt of fabric has a larger, more intricate fill pattern giving the illusion of an all-over print fabric, and using metallic thread for the hand needle adds a special touch of bling to the most recognized version of the Dancing Lady. A nice flower in the hoop shows her all set for embroidery.
Whether through machine embroidery, hand sewing, home decorating, garment sewing or quilting, we express our joy of sewing in wonderful ways. Now you can stitch your favorite version (or the entire collection) yourself. Click here to download the embroidery files.
Create her in any color you like – and put her on any surface you choose. Maybe she belongs on your quilting tote...on a book or iPad cover...and of course she’d be great in all her variations on a sewing room wallhanging...it’s up to you!
Stop by the Creative DRAWings® booth at any of the Fall Original Sewing & Quilt Expo events wearing or carrying your embroidery. You’ll have your picture taken with your lady (or ladies), and enter the special prize drawing as an extra bonus!
One prize winner will be drawn at each event to win a gift pack from Original Sewing & Quilt Expo and a SCHMETZ Collectible Gift Tin with assorted SCHMETZ needles. You do not need to be present to win.
Additionally, a GRAND prize will be drawn at the end of the season, including all entries from Chantilly, Kansas City and Minneapolis. This prize will be a Creative Drawings software package and an Original Sewing & Quilt Expo laptop bag.
