Appliqué with Kathy Wylie - Saturday, April 6, 2019 ($65.00)
Did you enjoy Kathy’s presentation in October? Were you inspired to learn more about the Appliquick method for turned-edge appliqué.
The innovative Appliquick tools provide unprecedented ease and precision for preparing fabric for hand or machine stitching – even
miniature-sized. If you have always wanted to learn turned-edge appliqué, or struggled with it in the past, this system is for you. Appliquick rods will be available in class so you can try before you buy, but we’re sure you’ll want a set for your toolbox. This is the sample we will be
working on in the class. Sign up at the December meeting, class size is limited to 20 participants.
