Geoffrey Beene said (more or less) “I’m going to stitch this beautifully by machine, no matter how much hand-basting I have to do to get there!” Explore a collection of Cynthia’s most-used stitches, and discover their hidden charms and valuable benefits in this hands-on experience. See garments with the finished results of the stitches you’re mastering, and compare them with some more common, not-so-great results we may have experienced at home. Learn where and why you’ll use each stitch, and practice on fashion fabrics, including silk. Cynthia will demonstrate the back catch stitch and her famous triple hem, the back pick stitch for zipper application and under-stitching (wait until you see why you’ll want to use this stitch!), the fell stitch for attaching facings and linings, a hand-rolled hem, the perfect basting stitch and more.
