My second class was with Cindy Losekamp in the Viking class room making a Pieced and Applique Bag in the Hoop. Although I've done this type of embroidery many times before, I enjoyed Cindy's class and she has some neat, new applique scissors coming out and a different technique for inserting a zipper in the hoop. I felt that this was a more of an advanced embroidery class, many of the other students were lost even with Cindy's excellent instructions. There were not enough helpers in this class, and I know they were trying very hard. For me this was a fun class, however I felt that the seams should have had decorative embroidery stitches since this was a crazy patch quilting. Of course if we had done the decorative stitches we would have been even father behind and as it was, we did run into about half hour of overtime.
