Cuddle fabric is the coziest, softest fabric on the market. While there are similar minky fabrics out there, none beat the quality and long-lasting feel of these amazing fabrics. Because it's so different from 100% cotton fabric, some sewers and quilters aren't sure how to sew with it. With just a few simple and easy tips and techniques, you'll quickly gain the confidence to make treasured quilts and gifts with this one-of-a-kind fabric.

Join sewing and quilting expert Mary Gay Leahy as she shows you how to use Cuddle fabric in a pair of stylish and oh-so-warm infinity scarves, an adorable kid's cowl, a handy multi-pocket tote and a soft and snuggly baby quilt. You'll learn tips for needles and threads to use with Cuddle, plus how to make sewing Cuddle on your machine a breeze.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Set your machine's presser foot to make sewing Cuddle snag-free.
  • Choose the right sewing machine needle and thread for working with minky fabrics.
  • Make clean and straight cuts every time.
  • Clean up "Cuddle dust" in a jiffy.
  • Combine super-soft Cuddle with a high pile with an equally soft Cuddle faux suede.
  • Launder Cuddle projects so they stay soft for years to come.
  • Use Cuddle precuts to make a delightful baby quilt.
  • Combine Cuddle with cotton fabrics.
Class includes complete instructions to make four exclusive projects: Infinity Scarves, Kid's Cowl, Hugs & Snuggles Baby Quilt and Pockets Full of Love Bag.

I DID enjoy this class. The presentation of the projects were very adequate, Tips were very good and I've tried them all. Having struggled with this squirmy fabric, I have finally mastered it. Also, quick response to a question. This class exceeded my expectations!

Enjoyed making the baby quilt and the mom-to-be was thrilled. Planning on making more baby quilts. The fabric is tricky to work with, but the class helped me with handling this beautiful fabric. I'm a beginner quilter and fortunately minky is very forgiving; very pleased with how my project turned out. Thanks for a great class!

I really can't rate this class, although I have looked at it. I can't figure out if you can buy the cuddle fabrics in already cut pieces or what. Where do you buy these. Annie's doesn't have much of a selection.

I was really happy with the class, but I had to "dock" two stars. One, because it was really short, and it seemed more geared towards the projects than in successfully using the fabric, and the other, because cuddle is NOTORIOUS for being wiggly and difficult to handle, particularly in smaller bits, and really the only handling tips were cut thick piled stuff from the back, use a much wider seam allowance, and GO SLOW. I was really looking forward to tips and tricks like whether using stabilizer on the seam allowance would keep it from shifting so much. And hot hot is too hot for the iron? Clearly there's issues there since "pressing" is more like "warming with light pressure for 2 seconds" so maybe stabilizer wouldn't adhere before melting the cuddle in the first place? I also wanted to know about using it in stuffed animals, how to manage small pieces and smaller seam allowances, and what's the difference between cuddle and minky. I'm still in the dark on those.
