Class Overview

Achieve incredible results with the ultimate sewing machine foot guide, taught by sewing guru Wendy Gardiner. Never second-guess needle size again, as you learn which is best for fine or heavy-duty projects. Then, learn how standard feet can save time and add detail. Create chunky seams with the zigzag foot and sew decorative details with the satin stitch and straight stitch feet. You'll discover how zipper feet can be used to create piping, a hidden zipper and more. Move on to techniques that make hemming, edge stitching and buttonholes a breeze with the blind hem and buttonhole feet. Switch to specialty feet for easy ways to sew slippery, thick and sticky fabrics. Spice up your home decor with trims and pintucks. Finally, finish your projects with flair by exploring the possibilities of bias binding, beading, braiding and ruffler feet.
