    Couched Appliqué, Discover the Power of NO!

    3 Hour class

    Free motion and couched machine appliqué give you the freedom to create what you dream with no turn under seam allowance, no unruly satin stitch and no excess bulk. These simple techniques use yarns, floss and machine appliqué to smoothly cover all edges cleanly and neatly. You can accentuate your appliqué or blend your edges.
