CHENILLING - with Marilyn Farrow

With the aid of numerous samples, Marilyn demonstrated the chenilling technique - converting layers of fabric into a new tactile surface. She encouraged us to use woven & natural fabrics from our stash, be they sad, unloved or ugly. Quilting rulers and walking feet found a new lease of life and we were shown a variety of cutting & marking tools. As well as being able to produce a card wallet or small bag using our new dimensional fabric, she also showed us some neat tips and tricks with closures, binding and linings as well as educating us on the practical use and purpose of a variety of machine needles.
