Applique Your Handwriting

This method for transferring our handwriting to fabric was taught on an episode of The Quilt by artist Joanne Sharpe.  On her website ( she encourages her students to "embrace and experience their own personal handwriting and transform letters and alphabets into unique art expressions."  In this class, students will learn the process step by step.  You'll begin by creating your chosen word, learn how to transfer it to fabric and then explore different ways to stitch your word down onto your background fabric.  In this process, you will use several kinds of stabilizers and interfacing.  (These will be supplied in a class kit, which is included in the class fee.)  They ensure that the shapes which are created, cut out and stitched down will retain their intended appearance. 

Pre-requisites.  To get the most from this class, the student should be comfortable using their sewing machine.  In particular:  threading; winding and inserting a bobbin; changing the presser feet; and adjusting the machine and stitch settings.
