Merely the sound of the word “Heirloom” conjures up an image of genteel ladies sitting on the front porch, with their needle and thread in hand. This class will introduce you to the basic techniques of heirloom sewing by machine. The techniques shared will include entredeux to fabric, lace to entredeux, entredeux to gathered lace, lace to lace, lace to fabric, and gathered fabric to lace.
The pace is slow, the sewing is easy and the fabrics are simply scrumptious to the fingers. The students will perform hands-on sewing activities.
