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.
