Sewing & Textiles Courses


INTRODUCTION TO APPLIQUE

Applique means applying one fabric to another.  You can do it by hand or machine but this session will focus on hand sewing.  As we embrace spring and look forward to summer the theme will be flowers.  The simplest of sewing techniques can make a variety of lovely vintage-style accessories.
