In this class you will learn to use an applique technique so new and revolutionary, you will use nothing else once you try it. It is easy, foolproof and the results are always amazing.

This technique leaves the quilt and the fabric soft and manageable, not stiff and board-like, as fusible webs and glues do. The best however, is that you can do raw edge applique without any fraying edges!! This technique produces a no-fray raw edge applique as a result.

You will be amazed and love the process and the results! and will never go back to fusing, gluing, or pinning and stitching with nylon thread, ever again!

In addition, participants will learn about the Value of using Value in their textile work. This workshop is well worth the investment.

To practice these techniques you will have a choice of any one of the wonderful patterns shown at the bottom of this page. Grace provides a kit that includes the pattern of your choice, the Heat-Set product, dispensing bottle, and pins. (Kit cost is $26)
