By now you’re no-doubt familiar with our educator-extraordinaire Teresa Coates through our popular Sew Together Tuesday video series — she’s shown how to sew everything from a Silly Cuddle® Monster Pillow, to how to sew a Luxe Cuddle® Minky Fabric Infinity Scarf (and everything in-between).
But this week is a bit different!
Instead of her hopping on our Facebook and YouTube channels, our trusty cameraman (and Teresa’s significant other) Hawke will be making his on-camera debut. He’s been busy learning his way around Teresa’s longarm quilting machine, and will be joining Teresa to talk about all things longarming and Cuddle®.
They won’t be tackling a specific project, but they’ll be sharing what to keep in mind when longarm quilting Cuddle® — from what notions and fabrics to use, to specific techniques that make the quilting experience a whole lot easier.
