Anita's University

Now Enrolling

Here at Anita Goodesign, we have been producing the best embroidery designs and education in the industry for over 15 years. We strive to provide our customers with all of the information they need to successfully stitch out and create the beautiful embroidered quilts and projects we produce. If you have ever been to an Anita Goodesign event, you know that they are unlike any other on the market; which is why we are proud to present to you: Anita’s University.

Anita’s University has been mastered by the founder of Anita Goodesign himself, Stephen Wilson, to provide the best education to both new and veteran machine embroidery fans in a fun, hands-on format. This event is comprised of multiple curriculum options that focus on education and are catered to different interests within the industry.

Anita's University: I Can Quilt 201

We are proud to introduce the second University class, I Can Quilt 201. In this University class you are going to learn how, through our unique quilting method, Anita Goodesign saves you time, money, and fabric – it’s a win win win! We will show you literally every quilting technique that we currently have, but we won’t stop there. Whether it is time-honored methods such as Trapunto or Crazy Stitch or our unique Radial Quilting, you’ll see how Anita Goodesign has revolutionized in-the-hoop quilting. We’re excited to show you our Quilting 1, 2, 3 method as well. This separates the main elements of your quilt block, which include the background stitching, the frame, and the design that is in the center, and allows you to construct a one-of-a-kind block. You get to choose these main elements so that your project is easily and uniquely yours. What happens once your blocks are stitched out? How does Anita Goodesign finish their quilts? You guessed it, you’re going to learn that as well. Sew much to discover and learn!


Anita's University: Next Level Embroidery 301

We are excited to announce the newest class offering to hit the Anita’s University campus, Next Level Embroidery 301! Whether you have attended our prior 101 or 201 classes from Anita’s University, or if this is your first time joining us, you’ll be amazed at the new things that you will learn! During the 301 class we are going to explore many different embroidery techniques — such as heirloom stitching, free standing lace, and coloring your embroidery project. We’ll take a closer look at unique appliqué methods such as watercolor appliqué, reverse appliqué, ghost stitch appliqué and so many more. Thinking outside the hoop, we’ll visit dimensional designs through button-up embroidery and our reverse trapunto method. This is only the beginning of the education you’ll receive, and we can’t even describe how much fun you’ll have!
