This is a maintenance workshop designed to teach the care that these machines require on a regular basis.  This continues to be Nova's most popular workshop. 

Students have loved Nova's Posies and requested something for the guys in their life.  Nova designed this raw-edge applique to fulfill those requests.  You could easily substitute sports themed fabric, or any fabric that would appeal to your man's special interests.
Cathedral Windows is a perfect “take along” project. Explore both the classic method (all by hand) and with your sewing machine for speedier results.

Exciting and dramatic Celtic design constructed with basic piecing techniques!
Fun dragonfly quilt!! Learn to make this happy quilt using an easy technique!
Delightfully sweet quilt looks like dimensional appliqué, but is actually a piecing technique.
Raw edge appliqué and quilt-as-you-go make this quilt a fast delight!
Let Nova introduce you to needle turn appliqué. Learning needle turn will forever change your attitude toward appliqué. Once you learn the basic techniques, you can easily use any appliqué pattern or design your own patterns utilizing coloring books or practically any image. Endless possibilities open before you!  And, (caution here!) it is addictive!

"I’ve been sewing on my “quiet” little machine for the past 2 days.  What a joy!  Just wanted to let you know how much I personally enjoyed your workshop.  I’ve heard nothing but raves from the 11 ladies that came from the Houston area."

Thank you for a most enjoyable and informative class.  I feel like I learned so much.  It was the best seminar that I've ever attended.
