Knox Makers - Fiber Arts 116 Childress St SW, Knoxville

Smocking is an embroidery technique that functionally binds and decoratively embelishes pleats. This gathering of the fabric can be functional shaping or purely decorative.

In the class, we will be making 3.5" heart-shaped sachets. They can be plain stuffed pillows or filled with a mixture of polyfil and potpouri as scent sachets. We will discuss various methods of pleating the fabric in preparation for the embroidery, but the class will focus on the stitching techniques and tips for finishing. Due to time constraints, the fabric will be pre-gathered.

*This is a pilot class so it's half price. Future classes will be full price.
