Merely the sound of the word “Heirloom” conjures up an image of lace and fine fabrics. This class will introduce you to the world of heirloom sewing by machine. The techniques shared will include entredeux to fabric, lace to entredeux, entredeux to gathered lace, lace to lace, and lace to fabric. 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.
Basic sewing skills needed, as well as being familiar with the zig zag
stitch of your machine.
All fabrics and laces needed for hands-on-learning of techniques described, as well as creating a Simple T-Bonnet are included in the kit. Each student will also receive 2 sets of hand outs, one explaining the techniques and another, the directions for sewing the T-Bonnet.
Supplies to bring: Basic sewing supplies, zigzag sewing machine with manual
and machine feet (zigzag, open toe, edge stitch), machine needles size 60 or 65,
extra empty bobbin, embroidery scissors, cutting scissors, fine pins, wash out
