APPLIQUEING WITH MJ
MJ Miller, the Woolwrights president, will be teaching a one day workshop on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm at Zion Lutheran Church. Students will learn how to make patterns out of freezer paper, place applique pieces onto the background, and blanket stitch them in place. Several embroidery stitches will be taught to embellish the wool applique top. Students will then learn how to cut fabrics to fit box and how to cover it completely inside and out. The use of batting to pad the top and attach the wool applique piece will be demonstrated.
You have two options for the design, one is a bird and the other design is a heart. You may buy complete kit which includes the pattern, color picture, all the wool needed for the top applique, four skeins of DMC embroidery floss, round paper mache box, white poster board, and fabrics to cover the box for a fee of $55.00.
Or you may bring all your own supplies. You will need to purchase the pattern with color picture and freezer paper for a fee of $15.00. You will receive a supply list when you sign up.
All students will need to bring these supplies to class: fabric and paper scissors, small straight pins, bottle of Alene's White Tacky Glue, chenille needles size 22 or 24.
Class fee is $35.00, instructor fee.
Complete kit and class fee combined is $90.00.
Pattern only and class fee combined is $50.00.
