Heirloom Inspired Stitches
Classes with Jayne Brogan • Educational, G, 07-Feb-2022
We all tend to overlook stitches that are available to us on our sewing machines because we stick with what we know.
In this video, Valerie Nesbitt and Jayne Brogan demonstrate how to achieve an heirloom feel with a modern twist. They show you how to use candlewicking and French knot inspired stitches on your sewing machine.
