Embroidered Curves (Raw Edge Applique)

29 October, 2022, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


With Vendulka Battais.

For 12” square cushion: 14” x 4 1⁄2” strips – 6 times
For 12” x 24” cushion : 14” x 4 1⁄2” strips – 12 times
For book cover (A5 book): 10 1⁄2” x 3 1⁄2” – 14 times
Decide which project you’d like to do – small cushion, long cushion or book cover.
You don’t have to cut your fabric to the given size, as we will have time to do it on the day. The size and amount of strips is just a guide. You can have each strip from a different fabric (going from one colour into another for example), or you can alternate 3-4 different fabrics. Remnants or fat quarters are fine, combination of patterned and plain-ish fabrics is fine. The remnants just need to be big enough
to cut the strips from.
Piece of fine or medium weight iron on interfacing ( 13” square for small cushion, 13”x25” for the long cushion or 10” x 20” for the book cover)
For machine embroidery bring a selection of contrasting and matching threads – plain, variegated, shiny – whatever you find at home.
For hand embroidery bring selection of contrasting and matching hand embroidery threads – perle cotton, stranded cotton, ribbons, yarns etc in plain and variegated colours.
Chenille hand embroidery needles
Embroidery hoop – optional

    Class fees should be paid in advance by card (which can be done over the phone- 01376 323280).

    We will also accept cheques, which will be cashed two weeks before the date of the class once we are sure the class will run, and should be made payable to Braintree & Bocking Community Association.

    Fees are non-refundable from two weeks before the class unless we can sell the space to another student (subject to a minimum of six students booked). Fees may be transferable at our discretion.

    Please understand that the Centre cannot afford to run classes at a loss, since we are a charity. As such, classes may be cancelled if we are unable to achieve a minimum number of students.
