Description

Have you always dreamed about sewing stuffed animals, but have been a little hesitant? Well this is the perfect class for you! This adorable, fun pattern by Funky Friends Factory will help you eliminate your fear while Gigi holds your hand along the way.

What’s so cool about this pattern is that it doesn’t have those complicated arms or leg joints making it much easier to sew. You can make your bear from cotton fabrics, canvas, linen or even from those baby clothes you have been saving for years. Don’t want to work to hard coordinated your fabrics? Grab the KIT below.

I am super excited to teach this class because I remember the first time I made a stuffy and I did it all by myself. Too many joints to struggle with and I probably shed a tear or two, but I am here for YOU.

Join me during this online class that will be taught LIVE with PRE-WORK required (PREWORK will be explained on a PRERECORDED VIDEO in group). Can’t join on the date? No worries, it will be recorded.

I will post a PRE-recorded video on FB on cutting your pattern. Stay tuned!

Here’s a TIP: No need to grab those keepsake fabrics for this project. We’ve created a kit for you! SEE BELOW FOR LINK

I am so glad you are joining my class. This is one of my favorite classes to teach. It opens the door into the world of quilting without feeling like you must know how to doodle. I hold your hand and help you with the walking foot and quilting several quilt sandwiches. This will be lots of fun!

  • Clean and oil your machine prior to class. Have a FRESH needle. Suggested needles include
  • The book of course! Gigi will be using the Walk Book you can purchase here.
  • The Even Feed presser foot a.k.a. Walking Foot.. If you have a TL machine you will need this one. If you have a computerized machines, you will need this one.
  • A marking tool. Such as a frixion pen (6-pack and 12-pack), a chaco liner, or an aqua pen.
  • Curved pins or Basting Spray. Basting spray is preferred. 
  • Gecko Gloves: AKA quilting gloves. I like to cut finger tips off. 
  • A ruler to draw a straight line. An 18 inch ruler is a nice size and then a smaller one like 6 inches is so nice to have to create markings.
  • Guide Bar: (If you don't have your guide bar grab one here: Quilt Guide for Walking Foot (Even Feed) - Juki TL Machines 
  • Quilt Sandwiches 2-4 Approximately 12x18 in size with a low loft cotton batting 14x20 . Please use quality fabric such a solid Michael Miller fabric. Baste them with basting sprays. That is my preferred method. You can also use curved pins.
  • Glide 40W Thread
  • A seam gauge is handy to have during class too such as the magnetic sewing gauge or the swing gauge
  • Blue tape is fun to have and so easy to use, but not necessary.
  • A notebook, a highlighter and pen during class.
  • Please make sure you have your walking foot installed and your knee lift if available for class. Get to know that foot INSTALLATION PRIOR to class.
  • A cup of tea, coffee or a glass of wine to hang with me! Maybe, some jelly beans or M&M's too. :)- If you have any questions feel free to call me at 813-376-5015 and ask for Gigi. 

It's time to get in the deep cleaning mode! Lets start off with your machine!

In this class, we will be targeting how to deep clean your Juki TL Mechanical Machine. This tutorial will go beyond the level of our Juki Junkies YouTube or Blog entry. We will dive deeper into how to clean this machine to perfection and how to lubricate it correctly. The best part of this workshop, is you'll be able to clean at your leisure while still being able to ask questions in the comment section. This class was live at one time but now is considered an interactable replay! Feel free to interact and ask questions as someone will get back to you. Please allow time for us to respond.

HOW TO ACCESS THE WORKSHOP:

The class will be hosted on Facebook through a private group. You can find the group HERE. To gain access to the group, you must purchase this class and answer all the questions upon requesting entry. One of those questions will be providing your order number. You'll receive the order number in your email. Double check your spam folder, the email will be from sewingmachines411@gmail.com

Suggested supplies:

*** Please DO NOT place this order with other products. Order separately****.

For this class, I will be binding a small 25" square sandwich. Lightly quilted. Use some cotton on the top and the bottom, and a piece of batting inside. Supplies that will make this class EVEN smoother:

Join Gigi and create a set of adorable mug rugs using raw-edge appliqué through the use of a blanket stitch and zig zag stitch. If you have a straight stitch machine you can use that too, but a computerized would be the first option.  An applique clear foot is suggested for computerized machines. For straight stitch machines such as the TL models a adjustable zipper foot or a shank adapter using an applique foot.

In this class, you will first learn to transfer patterns while using fusible webbing. We will also create a pieced and quilted background. Then we will start securing the designs by stitching them down while we learn to smoothly navigate those pesky corners and curves . We will purposely have patterns that allow you to work with straight lines and curves so you're exposed to different challenges.

Class includes complete step-by-step instructions (both live and prerecorded) and will be easily accessible on-demand if you are unable to make it to the live showing.

The pattern will be Christmas themed, but the instructor will also teach you how to create your own patterns that can be used with the background quilted mug rug.  3 patterns will be included: a snowman, Christmas tree and an adorable cup with saucer.

Gigi’s class will be streamed on a private Facebook group so it is important that you request to enter the Facebook group after you sign up for the class. You must have a Facebook account to participate. (CLASS LINK HERE) You can watch the class live with the instructor or watch it on-demand whenever your busy schedule allows. The class will stay accessible for one year from the posting date. The class can be viewed on a mobile device , iPad , tablet or computers. We recommend watching on a larger screen.
