New Class on the Schedule at Hen & Chicks Studio

Intro to Bobbin Work

Teacher: Dawn Cavanaugh
Friday, May 3 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Hen & Chicks Studio

Students will create a bobbin work stitch sampler during class that will help them learn the basics of bobbin work, including:

            *proper needle selection

            *how to make necessary machine adjustments to top and bobbin tension

            *selecting decorative stitches suitable for bobbin work

            *how to wind bobbins with different fibers

            *selecting threads and fibers that work well in the bobbin

            *stabilizing the fabric for bobbin work.

Students should have a working knowledge of their sewing machine, including understanding how to thread their machine, wind a bobbin, change a needle, and drop the feed dogs. It is helpful to know if you are able to slow your bobbin winder speed down (check your manual before coming to class).
