Selection of fabric strips in different widths and lengths for striped border
Three 5 x 115 cm (2 x 44”) strips
General sewing accessories + thread to match fabrics and invisible/nylon filament
Rotary Cutter/ 12″ Ruler and small mat
SEWING MACHINE + INSTRUCTION BOOK AND FOOT CONTROL!

Spectacles if required
Totally Tucked Up!
Latest collection of nipped, tucked and twiddled quilts, garments and bags plus yet more hilarious anecdotes from the Mistress of Muslin and Calico Queen. Serge into sewing, manoeuvre a manipulation and tweak a little texture – it is fast, fun and frivolous!
Texture into Sudoku
Nine ingenious ways to create surface texture and manipulated magic. Create all nine ideas in class and combine to create an amazingly marvellously nipped, tucked, twiddled and fiddled panel with a little added extra embellishment.
These designs can be made from one colour or use a variety of shades.
Batiks/plain coloured/hand-dyed cotton, silk or other natural fabrics with no obvious right/wrong side are a good choice of material.
If desired, pre-wash all materials but use a spray starch when pressing to restore ‘body’.
If using all calico (USA muslin) – it is advisable to select a medium-weight rather than a light-weight weave.
It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible.
All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.
