Turn your machine’s decorative stitches into a treasured heirloom while creating this beautiful keepsake bonnet. Decorative stitches are so versatile, and Connie will help you experience the diversity and variety of affects you can get. Simply by changing the thread or stitch settings amazing results can be had by all. Connie will share her best techniques for working with fine cotton batiste, French laces, wing needle and so much more. But the learning does not end there, you will also learn about stabilizers, needles, thread and sewing machine feet, how types and weights of thread affect the outcome and how length and width and position of a stich can affect the look of the stitches. This is a great project for all levels from beginner to advanced. Bring your own fabric or purchase optional kit – see supply list.
