Back Basting Appliqué

Needle turn appliqué doesn't have to be scary! Nor does it have to take hours and hours of prep time before you begin to stitch! We will be using Barb Eikmeier's book Back-basting Appliqué Step by Step. By tracing your design to the wrong side of the background fabric there is no problem with marking lines on the front that don't quite get covered. A fabric kit will be provided.

Instructors: Christina and Kaye
Time: 1:30 to 4:30 pm

Twilling is an old-fashioned stitch that adds a lot of elegance to any project. It is very easy to do and also very addictive.

Kit provided.

Wool Needle & Thread Club

There are 5 projects in Lisa Bongean's latest book and we will tackle one each month for 5 months. We will prep the project, review the stitches used (and practice them) and then get started stitching on the projects. We will meet on Wednesday afternoons starting at 1:30 and go until 4:00. I will make kits of the projects and you must let me know if advance if you would like a kit for the class. The cost of the kits will vary according to the amount of wool required. I will have the kits ready in advance of the class in case you would like to pick it up to match thread colors or you may bring your embroidery floss/wool threads/pearl cotton collections and match them at class. You are not required to attend all classes. You may pick and choose which class according to the featured project. They will go in order of the projects shown in the book.

We have a couple easy $5 patterns that include a template for tracing your blocks. These simple square shapes can be turned into a variety of quilt designs. You will learn the proper way to start and finish seams and several tricks to make hand piecing accurate and fun.
