Workshops
REVAMPED workshop!
Applique Three Ways: Mock Hand applique,
Contemporary and Traditional

Workshop: Appliqué Three Ways
This workshop is for those who are scared of the “A” word or who think they’ll never be able to appliqué beautiful quilts! (Or those who want to learn a new technique to add to their repertoire.)

Newly revamped, this workshop still teaches you how to use freezer paper to prepare the shapes and stitch them to your block by machine. But instead of only using invisible thread, we'll also use regular thread to create three distinct looks for your appliqué shapes - mock hand appliqué with invisible thread and a blind hem stitch, contemporary appliqué with a straight stitch, and traditional appliqué with the blanket stitch. Both contemporary and traditional are done with regular thread.

At the workshop, you’ll learn how to set up your machine with invisible and regular thread, how to prepare the appliqué shapes with freezer paper and how to remove the freezer paper after sewing the shapes down. We will work on an easy bird wall hanging, but will discuss how to use this method for any of your appliqué projects.

All student finish the quilt top in class an receive complete instructions for finishing the quilt at home.
