Class: Applique Academy

When: Coming soon; recorded and available indefinitely
Cost: $40

Applique is a popular technique in quilting that involves attaching fabric pieces onto a background fabric to create a design. In this academy, you’ll learn 3 ways of machine applique: 
  1. Raw edge. This technique involves backing the applique with a fusible product, ironing it to the background, and securing the raw edge. 
  2. Needle turn applique by machine. You’ll learn how to accomplish this technique in two ways: using your fingers or a stiletto and using template plastic. 
  3. Reverse applique. This technique involves layering two or more fabrics and cutting away the top layer to reveal the bottom layer in a specific design. 
Participants in this class will receive a discount on the “Hello Seasons” pattern and free enrollment in that year-long Sew Along.  

Note: This class will not cover hand applique.
