Class Description: 

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embellishment using a running stitch of heavy white cotton on indigo fabric. Learn sashiko techniques, how to easily transfer designs onto dark fabric, the best fabric and thread options for Sashiko, techniques for perfect stitch length, curves and corners. Work from photographs or drawings of foliage to develop sashiko designs with incorporated appliqué.

For appliquéd flowers, you can work with wool, cotton or both! Sylvia will demonstrate how to select and fussy cut fabrics to create dimensional flowers both with wool and cotton. You can create your own design or work with her flower patterns. Design boards will be utilized for exploration with design concepts such as asymmetry, repetition, movement, and balance.

Working with wool, learn which threads and needles are best used for whipstitch appliqué and the best threads and embroidery stitches to embellish your flowers to make them appear dimensional.

Working with cotton, learn the Postage Label , Apliquick, and Heat resistant Mylar appliqué methods. All methods create perfectly pre-formed shapes, ready to appliqué down. Learn the invisible appliqué stitch, how to make sharp points, smooth concave and convex curves, and how to add simple embroidery embellishment. The fine points of finishing and quilting will be demonstrated.

Develop your own design or work with one of Sylvia's many floral designs.
