Hand Applique Independent Study Group

*pictured for technique 

 After completing a 12-month block series with Bette, it was decided that a continuation of the study of hand appliqué should be offered. Whether you were a part of this original series, have your own incomplete appliqué blocks to work on, or are looking for others who love hand appliqué, this is the gathering for you. Bette will be there to share  her on-going work, and to encourage and mentor others. This will not be a club or a specific class, but a body of appliquérs who want to share these goals:

Stitch, Stitch, Stitch - Share Their Work - Promote Appliqué - Master Techniques - Encourage Each Other - Improve Their Work - Share Tips and Techniques - Learn From Each Other - Set Stitch Goals - Support Each Other

Meets the 2nd Saturday of every month, starting at 10am
