ART APPLIQUE - using your machine's set stitches
29th September 2018 - 10.00am - 4.00pm
A good way to practice your sewing machine skills....spend the day getting to know the stitches on your machine and use them to appliqué shapes onto a fabric background. Some stitches will be decorative and visible, others, hopefully will be invisible! We will also look at some simple reverse appliqué.
