Applique & Quilting Classes
Our Applique Classes are ‘sew’ much fun, once you learn the basics your creations will be limitless! We focus mostly on machine applique during these classes along with some quilting techniques. Applique layers fabric upon one another to create a scene, image or collage. It spans from youthful to funky to elegant and by using basic and decorative stitches, free motion quilting and stitch in the ditch techniques you can obtain any desired result. We like to think of our applique classes as a creative, crafty, expressive and fun style of sewing!
