Free motion applique is a modern technique that is really gaining in popularity at the moment. It is a great way to use your sewing machine creatively. It is not difficult, you don’t even need to be ‘artistic’ to get some great results!
In this class you will be taken through the process to create your own appliquéd picture, including sources of inspiration and choosing fabrics, as well as how to use your machine to create a fabulous, unique picture.
