    APPLIQUE CLASS: Reverse Appliqué Your Corporate Logo Away

    You know how companies are always giving you swag with their corporate logo on it. And it's nice - like - you'd probably wear it if it didn't have a corporate logo plastered on it? Well, today is your day! 

    In this class your instructor, Rosalie Gale, will teach you a simple way to hand stitch pretty reverse appliqué patterns onto your clothing. Reverse appliqué is an excellent way to mend clothing that has been stained or ripped or is covered in corporate logos. Bring a couple of items that were destined for the trash or are covered in corporate logos - but that you still love with at least half of your heart. We'll plan a design, pick fabrics and hand stitch our pieces to salvage our favorite clothing pieces from the landfill. If you would rather not bring a clothing item, we will have scrap fabrics for you to practice the technique. 

    It's appliqué... but in reverse. Sounds complicated but it's not. We promise.

    Thread, needles, scrap fabric and stabilizer will be provided. If you have materials that you prefer to work with, please feel free to bring them. We will learn the running stitch, back stitch and reverse chain stitch in this beginner friendly class. 

    This class will take place at Monster. Our address is 1716 NW Market Street, Seattle, WA 98107. It's at the intersection of 17th and NW Market Street - kitty corner from Mighty-O Donuts.

    Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class begins.

    Super fun class that helped me personalize some beloved garments and stop feeling like a walking ad for an employer.
