Stitcher’s Garden AM – 03/09/23 Aurora
March 9 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM | $15
All of the flowers, which are rather large, are stitched in place using specialty feet and decorative stitches found on your machine.
We will be learning different techniques, playing with new tools and feet, while making a new block each month.
Once all the blocks are sewn together, you will have a masterpiece and thoroughly know your machine!
