Slow Stitch Society



* Classes are priced individually.  ** Minimum enrollment of 6 required to hold class.

In the March 21st session, we will focus on Sashiko Stitching, review Big Stitch and introduce applique circles.

YOU WILL NEED:
Sashiko thread
Sashiko Needles
5 coordinating solids - (fat eights will be plenty)  the linen cotton blends work nicely, or peppered or shot cottons. (bundles available in shop) 
A couple of fabric marker choices:  Clover white chalk pen, clover chaco rolling liner, water soluble marker (Dritz or Hemline)
A sewing ruler- at least 6 inches long

Other items:
A comfortable thimble
Hand Sewing Needles - we like Bohin Crewel
A small pair of scissors
Your reading or sewing glasses if you wear them!

These are the only items you are required to bring to the first session.  When we meet on Feb. 20th, we will talk about supplies for classes to follow. In some cases we will make specific recommendations, and for other items we will discuss pros & cons.

In each class we will focus on 2-3 different techniques, then you will be given a challenge and a supply list for the following session.
We recommend that you try to attend the series- but if you miss a class, the supply list for sessions 2-4 will be available in the shop.

We will cover more than one type of handwork in each class, but the focus will be as follows:
Session #1 - Big Stitch, etc.
Session #2 - Sashiko, etc.
Session #3 - Applique', etc.
Session #4 - Curved EPP, etc.   

By registering for a class, you acknowledge and agree to these policies.

Instructor: Merrie Ford
Instructor Bio: Merrie has been sewing for 40+ years, and Quilting almost as long. She loves to talk about fabric, color and texture - among friends and in the Classroom! Teaching is just a natural extension of her interests and she loves it when new sewists catch the bug! Merrie's favorite color is Brown- although we will barely be using it in this class! You may catch her drinking coffee, iced tea, eating chocolate or just petting brown fabric during the day!
