Linda Sanders' workshop will introduce you (or re-introduce you if you took her 2015 class) to her technique of inlaid appliqué.  You will be working with 200 denier banner nylon, a heavy weight color fast fabric with deep rich colors that last.  This fabric also boasts a special "Quiet" feature, allowing banners to be placed anywhere.    This technique involves no back-cutting, and no fraying.  Pre-cut fabric pieces will be assembled using the supplied paper pattern (reusable?) then hot-welded together with your own hot-dot-iron.  (A soldering iron, HOT, with a biro-style point.)  The stitch used for all the banner sewing will be zig-zag, 4mm / less than ¼” wide.   

Choose from Crimson Rosella or Adelaide Plains Rosella.  Can't choose?  Order them BOTH!


Supplies/Equipment Needed for class -- Sewing Machine, thread (BLACK and YELLOW for the Rosella's), ripper, scissors, regular sewing supplies including a marking pencil which is visible on green fabric, and a cigarette lighter to seal threads.  Anyone with a light table may bring it, plus your own pole to fit (for group photo afterwards).  Also needed is a hot-dot-iron (a soldering iron with a point-style point) and an extension cord.  Several sheets of thick cardstock or poster board and clear packing tape to join them will aid you in having a smooth surface to hot weld on.
