Holiday Table Runner Videocast: Tinsel & Trimmings

Create a Holiday Table Runner

holiday table runner

featuring hand or free-motion embroidery & quilting with fun threads


Join us LIVE on October 11, 2022 at 2pm ET for this holiday table runner videocast! You’ll learn how to create a beautiful holiday table runner, featuring new embroidery designs by Gail Pan, a world-renowned embroidery, appliqué and quilt designer from Australia. REGISTER NOW>

First, Gail will go over her adorable hand embroidery patterns while teaching a stress-free transfer method. You’ll learn basic hand embroidery stitches, proper spacing for stitches and more.

Then, Ellen March will take you on a free-motion embroidery journey to recreate Gail’s designs by machine. She’ll use the same heavyweight and specialty threads in the machine that Gail uses by hand, making this project kit super versatile.


You’ll also learn how to quilt the finished piece by hand and machine; first using Sulky Poly Sparkle Thread for the embroidered blocks, and then using Sulky Filaine Thread for textured borders.

Create either the table runner, featuring all three designs, or a smaller wall hanging, featuring one embroidered block.

The Tinsel & Trimmings digital pattern comes with purchase of the kit and is also sold separately.


Included in the kit curated for this event are several different thread weights and types to embellish the runner using either hand embroidery or free-motion stitching techniques, and construct the runner. The included design collection (delivered as a digital file in your Sulky account after purchase) is easily transferred to the fabric of your choice using the included Sticky Fabri-Solvy Stabilizer. Create a table runner featuring all three designs or a wall hanging featuring one or three designs in the configuration of your choice.
