In Bloom


In Bloom
Teacher - Heather Peterson
Technique - Wool Applique
Skill Level - Advanced Beginner

Do you love the combination of piecing and applique? Enhance that beautiful combination by mixing in wool applique. Come and learn my easy techniques for preparing and stitching the wool applique, tips to make the process faster, how to mix the cotton and wool, and my contact paper trick for easy placement of the applique shapes. A machine is not required for this class, as we will mainly have teaching time, prep time and practice time to learn the hand stitches. In addition to teaching the techniques, I will also go over thread, stabilizers, and wool felt verses felted wool. Pattern from The Joyful Stitcher book included in class registration and kit fee. Fabric Kit available.

Class Registration: $60
Kit Fee: $56.95

Supplies Needed for Class:
- Basic Sewing Supplies (straight pins and pin cushion, scissors, seam ripper, fabric marking pen or pencil, small cutting mat (no larger than 12x18), and a rotary cutter)
- Good scissors for cutting applique shapes
- 1 yard of freezer paper

Fabrics required by each student if kit is not purchased:
- 31-3 ½” squares in assorted colors
- 7/8 yard of background fabric
- 1-12” square of gold
- For the wool applique you will need: Purples totaling a 6” square, Reds, Teals and Corals, each totaling a fat eight, and 1 – 10” square of dark green.

Optional items to bring if you have them:
- Thread for the wool applique (recommended Pearl Cotton #5 or #8)
- needles for the wool applique (the eye needs to be large enough so the pearl cotton can pass through)
