Not only did I have the opportunity to play with a bit of a snazzy sewing machine and get in some practice, I learned some really great techniques that, had I seen an example of before hand, I would have thought impossible for my level of ability!
First we learned to sew in some 'tucks.' I had never really appreciated the simplicity of doing this before for quite a nice texturing effect.
Then came the 'wave' effect; sewing the tucks down in opposite directions at regular intervals.
We then used the 'honeycomb' technique to create a wonderful pattern from the embellished tucks.
find a class with Jennie to experience her teaching style for yourself and learn all about twiddling and tucking! She even has DVD's of some of her workshops if you can't get to one; and just a few books!
