Heirloom Machine Mat
Sew beautifully and efficiently with this unique 28"-wide sewing mat for your machine! Lots of pockets give you so much room for your notions and supplies. They're made from different sized strips from your own heirloom fabrics. Find your smaller notions fast in see-thru vinyl pockets. Add the Thread Catcher and matching Pincushion, and you've got a fantastic, organized sewing system to go under your machine. It's great to take to class with pockets already filled, and easily folds into most sewing machine carriers tucked next to your machine. The best part is using the pre-quilted white fabric so you can put your creative energy into the pockets, pincushion, decorative stitches and thread catcher: it's just plain fun making this set! Students will learn bias basics, neat tricks using washable tape, a great way to fold over and end bias over bias, and work with boning. We will also cover heirloom machine basics: entredeux to fabric, roll and whip edge, gathering lace, gathered lace to beading (entredeux), lace rosettes. Students will supply their own coordinated heirloom fabrics, matching threads and two buttons to go with the white, double-sided cotton quilted fabric. This is a 6-hour, all machine class.
