Have you always wanted to try your hand at machine applique?
Join us for an evening having fun practicing, without denting your precious stash.
We will bring a wide range of applique templates and fabrics with us (including animals, cars, flowers ,hearts, stars, Christmas shapes, numbers and the alphabet), if there is a particular image or shape you would like to applique, perhaps a cartoon character, type of flower, animal or a child's drawing, please bring along a picture and we can turn it into your very own applique template set.
We will cover the basics of creating applique and then spend time practicing that all important top stitching!
You can sew as many shapes as you can handle onto 8-10" (20-25cm) square pieces of fabric, that you can then take home and incorporate into future makes - or bring along some t-shirts or other projects to add applique too. You will also have a range of applique templates, picked from our wide range and cut from durable template plastic to take home!
WHO: Applique is a lot of fun, and we would encourage anyone with an interest to attend, just remember that most shapes include a lot of corners and twists and turns, so sewing machine control is important, if you are a true beginner don't expect your first shape to be perfect and you will be fine.
WHAT: Creating your own applique, sewing to create freestanding applique shapes (like those ready made patches you can buy in store) and onto other pieces of fabric for decoration. Although we won't make a specific project for you to take home, you will have a lot of fun and will end up with a stack of appliqued squares that you can take home and incorporate into future projects.
WHERE: Course are held in Witney or Ducklington depending on class size and your own needs.
WHEN: As this is a bespoke course we will agree a day and time to suit you. We are able to offer slots during the daytime or evening, or at weekends. Email us at email@example.com to check out our availability before booking.
WHAT IS A ONE TO ONE OR MORE COURSE?
If you can't make one of our group courses, or would like to complete a workshop or course which isn't currently running as a group course, then a 'one to one or more' course might be just what you need!
We are happy to teach all our group courses to individuals, or small groups of friends, find the course you are interested in, and view the price for the number of people who want to learn together above. Contact us to select a date and time to suit your schedule and we can take it from there - once a date has been set you can pay in one go using the website, or we can divide the cost between the participants and invoice you all separately (the only days/times we can never do are Monday or Tuesday mornings).
If your group is larger than 4 no problem, if you are able to provide a venue then the overall cost of the course will go up by £30 for every additional participant. If you would like us to provide a venue there is a flat rate of £60 for that (remember, if your group is 4 or less the venue cost is already covered). If any of this is unclear please do ask, we are happy to provide a quote.
