Applique sounds like a fancy word, but all it really means is sewing a smaller piece of fabric onto a larger one! (Now maybe I've made it sound too simple...)
Once you know how to do it effectively you can create amazing designs on anything, I promise you will use it time and time again! We will show you the classic way of sewing your appliques on with zig-zag stitch, as well as reverse applique and how to do free machine embroidery. This is a fantastic way of sewing, you can literally draw with the sewing machine.
You can make a sampler to practice all the different techniques, great for students who want to try something new and add into their portfolio, or if you want to make something out of your picture we've got stuffing and everything you need to make it into a beautiful cushion.
Complete beginners are welcome. We would encourage a more simple design if you've never sewn before but you will still have lots of fun. If you are an experienced stitcher, we have got a few tricks up our sleeve to challenge you and you will be able to learn lots of decorative techniques in the 2 hours.

Did you know?
Women's buttons are on the left side of garments because when button garments first came to be, only women with servants could afford to wear them. They were sewn on the left side to make it easier for servants to help these wealthy women dress.
