Totally Tucked!
 
Experiment, embellish, embroider and enhance a multitude of twiddled tucked designs. Play with appliquéd threads and creative decoration, explore shapes, patterns and structures from 'Honeycomb' to 'Twice Tucked and Twisted'. Amazingly simple yet so so sew effective! Totally tantalisingly tasteful - most excellent ideas for garments, quilts and accessories.
 
Create an intriguing panel of textured and manipulated techniques or use the individual samples for blocks, cushions, garments etc.
 
It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible.
All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.
 
Choose a good quality medium weight calico (US - muslin) or light coloured plain/hand-dyed/self patterned cotton fabric. If desired, pre-wash all materials but use a spray starch when pressing to restore ‘body’.
