About the Class
Learn to create small and large pieces with this interesting and effective method. Woven fabrics the easy way. Learn to create with the circular attachment. You will appliqué with the decorative stitches your sewing machine has. In this 6 hours class I will discuss different stabilizers and show you the easy way to build the circle blocks. Learn the many different possibilities the circle offers. This is a surprisingly fast, fun, and easy project with lots of wow-effects.

Sylvia Gabriela Snyder found her inspiration for fabric art when she learned of Japanese fabric works in a class she attended (1993). After Sylvia moved to the U.S. in 2000, she was intent on discovering her own style and expression through fabric art. After attending many exhibits, Sylvia entered an exhibit in 2006, winning her first ribbon at the Bernina Challenge. After this exhibit, Sylvia has had her work showcased in numerous exhibitions all over the nation, and has won many other awards.
