Come learn how to layer the fabric, what fabric to use for in-the-hoop lace over the double scallop Madeira hem, and which stabilizers are best. Find out what a fabric sandwich is. This class will take all the mystery out of all of it. Bring your embroidery machine and try your hand at in-the-hoop reverse Madeira appliqué, Madeira double scalloped hems and one with shaped lace above the hem. You’ll be able to test drive the techniques with both traditional heirloom fabrics and modern fabric and discover the differences.
No heirloom experience required!
Bring your embroidery machine to this hands-on class, you’ll get tips for perfect placement and matching, tips for stabilizer and see how different colors of fabric change the look of the appliqué.
