Unleash the potential of your sewing machine with our Foot Feats workshop, where we explore the versatility of the 7-hole cord foot and the braiding foot. These couching feet may seem similar but offer unique capabilities that, when combined, open the door to a world of creative stitching possibilities.


Dive into a hands-on experience as you play with an array of threads, fibers, fabrics, and trims to create samples showcasing over a dozen techniques—both practical and decorative. From elastic shirring to heavy-duty gathering, elastic casings to smocking by machine in two distinct ways, this class is designed to broaden your stitching horizons. Discover how these techniques can make your everyday tasks faster and easier than ever before.
