  • Machine Tips
  • Modifying Tension
  • And More...

Hi! I'm Kate, the owner/operator of Tough Kitten Crafts.

I empower sewists to move from frustrated to fearless with machine embroidery via online education. 

Using my machine embroidery expertise, I have helped hundreds of people around the world become more confident with their embroidery machines and expand their machine embroidery knowledge.

But the coolest part about my job? 

I get to help people be excited about machine embroidery.   

And the coolest part about this workshop? 

No one else is teaching it. 
 No. Seriously. 

 This content can't be found anywhere else. 

 The tiny bit of information available on the internet about machine embroidery with 12 weight thread is: 
 A. not robust enough to take the frustration out of learning this new technique 
 B. wrong or (more politely) incomplete. I know, because I tried to follow the available content to try out this technique and, man, do I have the disappointing and frustrating projects to prove it. 

 So I started to play around myself. 
 I didn't want to teach and talk about 12 weight thread unless I could make it as easy as working with 40 or 50 weight. It definitely wasn't easy at first and took much trial and error. 

 Through of all the continued experimentation, the content of this workshop was discovered. 

 Which is a long winded way to go back to the original point: 
 This workshop is the only one of its kind
 This workshop is the only way to learn this content. And I'm sooo flipping excited to have you come learn with me!

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What do I need for this workshop?
    A pen and paper! This is a lecture style workshop so I just need you to show up ready to take notes and ask lots of questions.
  • I can't attend live, will you have this workshop again?
    While I currently have no plans to host this workshop again, I might again in the future. I'm not sure, honestly.

    The best plan if you can't show up live is to join the workshop and watch the replay.

    If you really want to attend live then let me know you'll be waiting for another live workshop and hop on the email list to make sure you don't miss out next time.
  • What if I don't have an embroidery machine?
    While you don't have to have an embroidery machine to sign up, the content is exclusive to embroidery machines and will therefore be more useful to you if you have one.

    You can sign up now in anticipation of a purchase, if you'd like, but I would highly recommend waiting until you have a machine.

    We will not be stitching in this workshop but the content is absolutely beginner friendly.
