About the course

First Bloom - A Starch Applique Technique Class

This class will focus on the technique of learning the starch applique method to turn raw edges over a cardstock weight freezer paper to complete the pictured flower. You will turn both inward and outward curves and circles, fold under points and corners (no dog ears left to turn while stitching), and make stems. You will glue baste your flower to your background after removing the freezer paper, then hand stitch in place while learning about needles and threads. Throughout the class, lots of tips will be shared for successfully completing applique projects. Bring your own fabrics and take home a flower block to use in your next project.

Included in your class fee is a kit that will include your pattern, freezer paper templates, fray block, and sample needles. The instructor will provide for the day other tools and supplies for the project, such as the starch, thread, and pressing boards.

Class fee includes Vendor Mall entrance ticket.
