Sewing Finishing Touches
Date:Tue, 11/06/2012 - 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Learn techniques for sewing French Seams, Elastic smocking, lace appliqué, sewing with the bobbin thread, using the feed dogs to ease as well as gathering and ruffling feet.
In a French seam, the raw edges of the fabric are fully enclosed for a neat finish. Machine smocking is a technique used to gather fabric so that it can stretch. Appliqué involves pieces of fabric, embroidery, or other materials which are sewn onto another piece of fabric to create designs, patterns or pictures. Learn all this and so much more!
All materials for this class are included in the tuition, you will leave with a series of sewn samples and reference handouts.
