Mel’s Foot Club 2019

 

Each class will be dedicated to one or two presser feet and/or attachment. You will make technique swatches, so you can develop a reference notebook if you choose. In some classes, you will make a small project using the featured foot. In other classes, I will demonstrate additional feet and attachments as part of the class.

 

There is a $15 supply fee due at the first class. It will cover mounting cards, project supplies, and notions (such as cord, decorative threads, etc.) needed for some of the techniques.

 

Class Supplies

 

  • The fabrics pieces listed below should be medium weight woven fabric such as quilting cotton unless otherwise stated.
  • Polyester embroidery thread will work for all of these techniques. I have indicated where it will be good to have a color of thread that contrasts with the fabric, so the stitching will be visible.
  • We will be working with 5½” x 8½” mounting pages. You may want to purchase page protectors and a notebook (office supply stores), but that is optional.
  • The techniques we are stitching are from The BERNINA Big Book of Feet. It is not required to have this book but if you do have it, I encourage you to bring it to class with you.
  • If you have questions about the supplies below, we will be discussing them in Class #1.
