Stitching Cosmos – “A medley of decorative sewing machine techniques using popular sewing feet and accessories”.

STARTS JANUARY 2017!

The Stitching Cosmos sewing machine program promotes a different sewing machine presser foot and different sewing machine techniques throughout this 10-month galaxy tour. Explore a new technique with guided instruction and hands-on practice like machine appliqué, couching, pintucks, circle sewing attachment, ruffler and decorative stitches. No embroidery!

“I had no idea my sewing machine was capable of doing so many cool techniques.” – DeWayne K.

There will be three levels of techniques each month.
There will be beginner level techniques for those who are just starting out and two additional techniques for those who are slightly more experienced. Learn all three techniques (and sometimes more) at each hands-on class. Make-up days are available for missed class sessions during a future Stitching Cosmos session or at an Heirloom Creations’ Semi-Private class session at no additional charge. Open to all brands of sewing machines. Tours are scheduled for the last Wednesday of each month starting January 2017.

“It is like having a date with my sewing machine each month.” Gail G.

The Stitching Cosmos is Sara Snuggerud’s adaptation of the Stitchers Garden. Over the past two years, over 80 students have passed through this amazing course of sewing machine instruction with Sara’s expert guidance.

Sara welcomes all brands of sewing machines. She has had Brother, Pfaff, Babylock and Janome sewing machine owners along with Bernina and Viking owners in all her Stitchers Garden classes. Her 25+ years of sewing industry knowledge spands over every brand of sewing machine on the market. If you own a sewing machine and want to expand your sewing knowledge, this is the class for you.
