Edge Stitching on my Quattro

  • Do you have the Quattro from Brother?  Have you ever used the Edge Stitching in the sewing area?  If you ever wanted to add decorative stitching to the edge of ribbon or fabric, but didn’t want to just sit there, this is the way to do it.  Just put your “edge stitching sheet and the “V” foot on and go for it.  I set up my machine and tell it to sew.  Now this is in the sewing part of the sewing area.  I usually use around 5 yards of ribbon, 1 to 3 inches.  You want a ribbon that is sturdy.  Make sure you have turned off the “needle position stitch placement” button in the notebook area.  When you turn off this button your “edge stitching button” will work with most of the stitches in the quilting area “Q” of the sewing machine.
  • This gives you a lot of ways to make ribbon look more decorative. This will even go into a 30% curve.   I will try and put the project up after class on Monday.

Applique Class for Knoxville. Anita Goodesign for Murfreesboro!!

  • Hello all,  Boy it’s a good day.  Yesterday I finished the Snowman Appliqué class for Knoxville MidSouth Sewing. It’s next week at the store.  We are going to use several decorative stitches and it’s really cute.  I had to limit the class because of the area we will need to use.  I still have a few places to fill.  This is a sewing class, so if you have a wonderful machine or want to try out one this class will be fun and you will have a great door decoration for Jan and Feb.
