“Happy Hoopers” focuses on machine embroidery. Our sewing/embroidery machines tend to be large and heavy, so we don’t bring them to our meetings. We discuss a wide variety of topics from needles to notions, bobbins to blanks, stabilizers to software. Recognizing that none of us has all the answers, we specialize in mining group experience to find solutions to our embroidery problems. Each meeting we encourage members to bring their work for show & share. This is a very dynamic group! If you have a sewing machine capable of embroidery, we’d love to have you join us. We even have retreats! Contact JoEllen to be put on the Happy Hooper mailing list and Happy Hooper Facebook page.
