Applique Workshop 104

The Applique Workshop is a series of 4 classes designed to take you from beginning with the buttonhole applique stitch through learning to applique with your decorative stitches.  You will learn about stitch manipulation and how to create stitches to fit your applique design.   The Thread Sketching class will guide you through learning the basics of free-motion thread sketching and how to add extra dimension to your applique projects.  All of these classes will lead up to the Fantasy Flowers Applique   Class, so watch for details of this class.

You will learn how to do basic buttonhole stitch applique, how to turn corners of all angles, how to sew around a circle or curve,  work up to using the decorative stitches on their machines in applique, how to manipulate those stitches to create a new look or to fit the applique shape.  We want you to go away excited about what your machines can do and learn more about more sewing techniques.
