Sewing 101: I have a machine, now what?

If you are not sure how to thread your sewing machine, what bobbin size and type of needle to use, what all those presser feet are, and are terrified of even touching that tension dial, then this is the class you have been looking for.

Pull on Pants or Shorts

Straight-leg pants and shorts with elastic waist and slant hip pockets. These make great pajama pants! Not bulky at the waist, practical pocket and the visible facing option allows for fun color blocking.? This is a great class to learn the basics of pant construction using a well written pattern by Jalie. If you like, I will teach you how to do mock-felled seams to make them look more professional.

Facing Vs. Binding Techniques

This class will teach you how to put your FACING on your quilt, instead of binding!

QESS Club:
February QESS Club - February  15, 202o  10:00 am

Sew up a beautiful Trapunto Snowflake Table Runner done “mostly in the hoop”. I will also be quilting it with metallic thread to give our snowflakes a bit more sparkle!  For those trips to warmer climates, I will use zippers, mesh, and the Pack It In! pattern to help you create your own travel bag and keep you organized on your trip. To round things off, I will be showing you how to use the 2 thread blanket stitch and  heavy decorative thread in your serger.
