We will have great fun taking a beautiful piece of fabric and adding decorative stitches, maybe some hand embroidery, couching, ribbons, trims and/or buttons.  Do you know where your pivoting stitches are?  Everyone has them, let's learn how to make them!  Once you have this stupendous fabric, what will you make with it?  We'll talk about  what you can do with your new fabric during class.

As always, if your own another brand, please join us.

Supply List

Book: Stupendous Stitches by Carol Ann Waugh


It is recommended to use a batik that does not have a strong pattern either with a muted or bright color palette - definitely not a patterned fabric. In addition bring some fabric that you can stitch on before stitching on your final fabric.

  • About one yard of fabric or more depending on what you want to make with it. Part of this fabric will be used to audition the stitches before stitching on your final piece. You will understand this more in the class.
  • The same amount of fusible interfacing or stabilizer or the amount of the above fabric.

If you can, fuse the interfacing/stabilizer to the fabric.

Variety of colors that blend or contrast with fabric. Threads can be cotton, polyester, rayon, embroidery or anything that you want to work with in different weight but nothing less than a 30 or higher than a 60 weight.
