STITCH BOOK
- Sep 22, 2018 01:00 pm

Have you thought of making a book of all the stitches in your machine? I highly recommend it. Let us help you get started. Sure your manual may show you a picture of the stitches or you see the stitch on the screen but they come to life when you actually stitch them out. We will also explore what features your machine may have to manipulate the stitch to make it look different. Depending on how many stitches your machine has you will not stitch all of them during the class but we hope that this is the boost you need to get started. This class is open to all machine makes and models.

Cost: $ 15.00
So you have all of these beautiful stitches on your machine. Do you know that you can alter them using stitch width, stitch length, elongation, and other features on your machine. Do you know where your pivoting stitches are? Everyone has them, let's learn how to make them! Let's use those beautiful stitches to embellish fabric! We will have great fun taking a beautiful piece of fabric and enhance and embellish it by adding decorative stitches, couching cords and ribbons, adding trims and/or buttons. While doing this you will learn the features of your machine and how to use them. Once you have this embellished fabric, what will you make with it? We'll talk about what you can do with your new fabric during class. This class is not limited to Bernina machines only. All machines are welcome.
