The Streamlined Appliqué Class is Saturday, March 16th, 2013; We begin at 9am and it is an 8hr class that OQG is offering at $30 per person and is being held at Country Inn and Suites at 118th and Miami Streets..
I am looking forward to our upcoming class and so glad you have decided to come and learn something new!
Regardless of the method, all appliqué work is intensive and precise to some extent. The appliqué technique I’ll be teaching will be fun and simple. It is, in my mind, the most enjoyable, quickest, and most accurate method of appliqué. It’s perfect whether you prefer hand work, needle-turn, or machine work.
I will supply the freezer paper, practice templates, and several other items for all our practice work. When we are finished, you will have several pieces to refer back to after class, a sample quilt label, and a beautiful rose assembled and ready to use on a quilt project. After this class, you’ll never be intimidated be appliqué again!
This is a different method of appliqué. There will be no tracing in reverse. There will be no ironing freezer paper to the wrong side of the fabric. There will be no fusible webbing. There will be no glue (well, with one small exception). There will be no satin stitching. This is a truly streamlined method that I developed myself to get the fastest path from A to Z and still have a precision piece. What you’ll need to have with you the day of the class is listed below this letter.
Class begins promptly at 9am. We will break for lunch or you can bring your own. Everyone is free to do their own thing.
I look forward to meeting each one of you. We’ll have a great time! SUPPLY LIST
