About Your Workshop:
During this four session workshop you will learn a variety of applique techniques from machine appliqué to reverse appliqué. You will create a range of panels that can be simply quilted and finished to create beautiful fabric images.

Learning Curve:
Machine, stained glass, Celtic and reverse appliqué techniques will be demonstrated over this four session workshop. Using materials such as fusible web and commercial bias tape create beautiful pictures by building up images in fabric. Further advice and tips on how to curve, create points and weave bias tape strips will be given.

Skill level: Suitable for beginners (machine sewing experience is required).

About Lis:
Lis has been sewing for as long as she can remember – her mother taught needlework and Lis would be given fabric scraps to play with which lead to her creating her own dolls clothes. Lis’s love of all things needlework continued and she enjoyed cross stitch, dress making and soft furnishing. Then in 2006 Lis started patchwork and quilting after spending many years wondering why you would cut fabrics up just to sew them back together again! Since then Lis has completed qualifications in Advanced Patchwork and Quilting, a City and Guild Certificate in Patchwork and Quilting and a City and Guild Diploma. Lis enjoys all aspects of patchwork and quilting including traditional, contemporary, piecing and quilting.
