Class Overview

Create five pretty machine embroidery projects as expert JoAnn Connolly guides you through appliqué the easy way! After you learn to prep and stabilize your fabrics, use your embroidery machine to navigate the curves on an adorable appliquéd pincushion. Find out how to tackle a large embroidery area with your 4"x4" hoop as you create a breezy blouse with a multi-fabric appliqué, and use paper templates to take the hassle out of accurate alignment. You’ll delve into raw edge appliqué with a whimsical pillowcase design, and learn timesaving tricks as you construct and appliqué a colorful tote and charming retro-style apron. Plus, you’ll receive five design files for a range of hoop sizes, free with the class!
