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

Whatnots Club

Join us for Kim Diehl's Whatnots club - Collection 5 . Kim Diehl has designed six more cute, small projects using her new fabric line WELCOME WAGON. Her fabric colors are beautiful with deep, vibrant colors that lean to the "old fashioned" look. Our club meets each month on the 3rd Thursday. The classroom will be available between 2:00 and 8:00 and you may come at any time (after 2:00) and then leave when you need to. At the club Christina will share tips and ideas to make the projects easier to construct. Plus, we will have a lot of fun talking and sharing treats. The club fee is $30.00 which covers all the club meetings and entitles you to have the first opportunity to purchase kits at a special pricing. The kit fees will vary slightly depending on the amount of fabric in the kits. They will usually be in the $20.00-$35.00 price range. You will also receive some extra little tips from Kim each month along with a recipe for something yummy.

We look forward to having you.
