Beginner Appliqué
Pouring My Heart Out

The biggest regret most quilters have is that they haven't utilized the stitches in their sewing machine - they have a special magic to make your appliqué come alive! Let us help you manipulate and enhance them with machine adjustments and decorative threads. Appliqué allows you the freedom to add your own personal touch. This class is the prerequisite to all other appliqué classes, and will introduce you to the correct needles, threads, fusing method and stitching techniques to result in stunning machine appliqué. Machines are not required for the first class. This new beginner appliqué project is perfect for experimenting with your decorative stitches and receiving in-depth instruction, no matter which machine you own. Learn the correct way to trace, prepare your fabrics, fuse, and stitch any appliqué. Get our inside info on how to do stitch building, which needles are best for which threads, which foot does the trick, and how to perfect your results. This is a pre-requisite for all other appliqué classes.
