Decorative Napkins

Past Class

More and more, people are turning from paper napkins to cloth napkins. Not only are cloth napkins more ecologically sound, they are much more attractive and lend a more festive appearance to a dinner table. Cloth napkins can be formal, or relaxed, depending upon the techniques employed. A more formal napkin might have lace borders or corners, or monograms. Alternatively, pintucks and decorative stitching can create a dressy appearance. A more casual napkin might have a festive print or a rolled hem. Lastly, with a 790 or 880 Bernina, you can use the sideways motion function to do larger and unique decorative stitches.

In this class, we will work on two napkins. One will have a 1/2 inch hem with mitered corners, and the other, pin tucks with decorative stitching. You can make both from one fabric, or choose 2 different fabrics and make 2 napkins from each one.

This class will be limited to Bernina machines as specific presser feet are needed. Bernina 590 machines are available for those individuals who do not have access to Bernina machines or are unable to bring them. Either 5 mm or 9 mm machines can be used.
