Holiday Mug Rug

Learn how to create perfect appliqués while making the Designs by Juju Have a Cup of Cheer Mug Rug completely in the hoop of your embroidery machine.

Becky Thompson will take you through the project step-by-step. Becky gave up her day-job and retired after 37 years of federal service in 2020 to follow her passion to share her love of quilting and machine embroidery with her viewers on her YouTube channel, Power Tools With Thread. You'll love her enthusiastic teaching style and contagious energy.


During this webcast, you'll learn how to import an appliqué design into a cutting machine and incorporate it into the mug rug stitchout, using Sulky Perfect Appliqué for great results. Becky will also go over how to add the appliqué without a cutting machine, too!

This mug rug makes a great quick gift for anyone on your list and is a fun accent to your existing holiday & winter décor. With beautiful fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics and lustrous Sulky thread, the Mug Rug achieves boutique status - even though the machine does most of the work for you! Create several to give as last-minute gifts, and use the design multiple ways to create a shelf pillow, appliqué potholder, gift bag and more.
