Open up a whole new world of applique possibilities with your sewing machine! Gail shows all the tips and tricks to using decorative stitches for raw-edge applique. You'll be using a block from our newest Block of the Month - Garden Party which features PRE-CUT PRE-FUSED shapes to get you to the sewing faster! Bring your own machine or use one of the classroom BERNINA 590's!

Sewing machine in good working order - if you would like to reserve a BERNINA 590 from Ladyfingers just let us know! Machine should have knee lift - also known as a free-hand system.
Open toed embroidery foot for applique Bernina #20, 20C, or 20D. Can also use Foot 34, 34C, or 34D. If you are using one of Ladyfinger?s machines, a #20 will be supplied.
You can bring thread to match your applique colors - but we will be discussing using different weights of threads for different stitches, so you can wait until class day to make your thread selections.
Bobbin thread can be 50wt to match your background fabric.
Bring some scraps to practice stitches. You can use some scraps from your kit but you will need to bring some fabric for background.
Stablizer for the underside of the background fabric. Your block is 20 x 20. I recommend Totally Stable or Rinseaway. Both are available at Ladyfingers
