Working Fabric, Applique & Trapunto Class - How Does Your Garden Grow
This piece has a finished size of 16” x 16”.
This is a TWO DAY class, where students learn both my Trapunto Technique and my Applique technique, that LOOKS like Needleturn but is ALL SEWN on the SEWING MACHINE.
I've been using this same Applique technique for over 30 years now, and
the Trapunto for over 10 years, so I'm rather proficient within these techniques.
The first day I aim to have everyone finish their Applique, then the second
day we work on the Trapunto, where as well as learning this technique, you also have the chance to learn how to place Trapunto under your Applique as well, exactly as I do within my exhibition quilts.
I like to start the first day ONE HOUR EARLIER than normal, as I spend the first hour teaching everyone how to set their machines up to use monofilament thread.
I then also take students through a short lesson on how I personally choose my fabrics when making my quilts.
This gives everyone an Ahh..Haa moment, once they see just how I do
this. Learning to put the binding on is not part of this class.
Class runs from
Day 1..9.00 am until 4.00 pm or 9.30 am until 4.30 pm
Day 2..10.00 am until 4.00 pm.
