Raw edge appliqué technique is used to create a “new “fabric. Torn fabrics and lace are machined to a background creating a textured surface. More decoration is added with machine patterns, couching, and hand stitching. The workshop shows creative re-using and re-cycling of materials.

There is a choice of small project ideas for using the fabric. These include a book wrap, or smaller pieces can be feature squares in cathedral window units, appliqué on a quilted book wrap, a small padded heart shape, and as a foundation for inches. Instructions and templates will be available for all of the ideas.

All materials except the book will be provided, you will need to bring £5.00 on the day
for these, plus your own A5 book.
