DVD: Working with Faux Leather

There is so much you can learn when it comes to sewing with faux leather. This video class will help you to make almost anything you want out of faux leather. It’s great for home-dec applications, perfect for purses and even accent details in garments.

Because faux leather does not behave the same as fabric there are some special techniques needed to come into play to manipulate the material. Pressing also requires some special considerations. Instructor, Nicki LaFoille, will review each of those plus explain how to cut faux leather and the tension and stitch length settings needed to set you up for success.

Nicki will also explain what to use for topstitching thread and needles, plus some different presser feet, such as the Teflon foot and the roller foot, and some other tips for sewing and storing faux leather.

  • The 411 of Faux Leather
