Lite Steam-A-Seam 2

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

012352-steam-a-seam1

Lie steam-a-seam 2 is unlike any other fusible web. A pressure-sensitive coating on both sides of the web allows it to temporarily stick to the applique material, then adheres the applique piece to the background. The entire applique stays in place without shifting and is repostitionable until pressed with an iron. It  is even possible to try on a garment and reposition the appliques before fusing to ensure exact placement. When completly satisfied with the design, fuse all the materials in one final step.

  • Fuses fabric, paper, cardboard and wood.
  • Washable and dry cleanable.
  • Secures unfinished edges, they will not fray or lift.
  • Will not gum machine needle after fused.
  • 18′ wide.

As used by Kellie Wulfsohn in her many patterns.

New Class – Tactile Surface Embellishment

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011
New Class at Blueberries with Kay Haerland

Tactile Surface Embellishment

In this fun workshop you will learn techniques for creating realistic and tactile landscape embellishments.

We will use different tree barks as our medium, while exploring a variety of techniques for 3D surfaces, threads, organzas, velvets and other textured fabric. We will also work on transforming ordinary string into interesting vines. This will involve lots of ‘free’ free motion quilting and different couching techniques. You will also work with burning tools for stressing fabric.

Your quilt horizons will expand and the sky is the limit with skills and confidence you will have gained in this class.
