A nice apple table set for the apple meal !

We will sew and embroiderer a table cloth, a napkin, a silverware holder (in the hoop) and a glass marker.

TABLECLOTH

We have to cut the fabric by mesuring the table according this formula:                       *lenght of the table + exceeding at both ends + widht of the hem at both ends         Example: 60″ + 12″ x 2 + 2″ x 2 =  88″ lenght of the tablecloth                                       *width of the table + exceeding at both ends + widht of the hem at both ends                Example: 32″ + 12″ x 2 + 2″ x 2 = 60″ width of the tablecloth

Sewing the tablecloth

  • iron the hem at 2″  each of the 4 sides
  • make the 4 mitered corners
  • with the help of the cloth guide of your machine, sew an even row of the honeycomb stitch with a wing needle all the way around the fabric at 2″

hemstitch

Hem with honeycomb stitch with a wing needle

The honeycomb stitch in combination with the wing needle a nice decorative stitch with holes. You can use any stitch that comes back many time at the same place to produce the hole.  This stitch could be  5mm or 7mm or 9mm depending of the model of your machine.

Mitered corner

The work looks more elegant if the corners are mitered, this means sewn at an angle of 45°. The weight of the fabric in the corners will hold nicely in place. On the wrong side of the fabric, this stitch will overcast the raw edge of the fabric; we now have two use for the same stitch.

Embroidery at each corner of the tablecloth

Then, when the tablecloth is all finish to sew, you can add embroidery design. It is suitable to first embroider the four corners; then, add a design in the center of each length by using a different design form the same collection.

 NAPKIN

About Céline Ross

À cause des imprévus de la vie, j'ai changé de carrière très tôt dans ma jeune vie d'adulte. Toute mon éducation scolaire, du primaire au secondaire et jusqu'au professionel, m'a été enseigné par les religieuses CND qui étaient... très exigeantes. Ces professeurs m'ont inculqué le goût de bien apprendre, l'appréciation du travail bien fait et l'envie de toujours me perfectionner. Je n'aurais jamais osé ouvrir mon École de couture sans cette formation ni cette certification. Lorsque je deviens revendeur autorisé Janome en avril 1982, la compagnie poursuit ma formation côté machine à coudre et je deviens Éducatrice. Mon travail est varié; je donne des formations aux marchands Janome pour l'Est du Canada et d'ailleurs. Je participe à des Salons, à Janome Institute, je publie un cyber bulletin, j'ai fondé un 'Club de broderie' à Montréal en 1994 et, depuis l'année dernière, chez d'autres marchands. Je confectionne des échantillons avec les nouveaux produits que Janome ne cesse de développer. Et, depuis aujourd'hui, je blogue ! Après toutes ces années dans ce domaine, je garde toujours le même enthousiasme à apprendre et à transmettre mes connaissances. Janome est à la fine pointe de la technologie moderne et ne cesse de me faire progresser.
