Join Michelle as she shows you the making of a fun, colourful piece of fabric using intarsia function, the initial idea, which she will show how to design will be made for a cushion meaning it'll be a small make but there would be nothing stopping you applying the technique to a child's comforter or sofa blanket etc. It won't matter what yarn since you will want to swatch to find preferred fabric first but use yarn relevant to your machine i.e. standard gauge no thicker than D.K at the most providing the fabric is the consistency you would like for your use. This will be open to all machines with an intarsia facility.
