Simple Pictorial Hand Applique

Thursday, September 28

Learn my layered pictorial hand applique technique during this full-day class. The $30 kit fee for the class includes the pattern with full-color instructions, freezer paper templates, pre-washed fabrics for the complete block, tracing paper - nearly everything you need to complete the hummingbird block. Students should bring a pencil, fabric-cutting scissors, paper-cutting scissors, thread, and a hand applique needle.

Turned Edge Machine Applique: Easy as an Apple Tree

Friday, September 29

No fusing. No glue. No satin stitch. No kidding. This class features an adaptation of my hand-applique technique, pre-turning the fabrics seam allowances on freezer paper templates, then stitching the edges down using the blind hem stitch on a domestic sewing machine. The results are beautiful and, yes, you'll have your picnic block completed by the end of the day. See the pattern here: UNDER THE APPLE TREE.
