Hand-Sewn Quilting Series: Kkekki, a Fine Seaming Technique

A Virtual Class with Youngmin Lee

Kkekki is a beautiful and tidy seam technique for use with sheer fabrics. The finished seam is fine, neat, and sturdy.

Using sheer and lightweight fabric, Youngmin will teach how to use this technique to make narrow seam lines. Pick any lightweight fabric to pair together. This is also a great technique to use if you are making a textile where both sides are visible. At the end of class you will have a sample block with seams you will want to show off!

This class is part of the Hand-Sewn Quilting Series.

Perfect for the beginner, our Hand-Sewn Quilting Series aims to demystify the act of hand sewing a quilt block through a sequence of diverse forays into block construction. While rooted in quilting’s history of using scrap fabrics to make beautiful coverlets, this series gathers contemporary voices and techniques to give the new sewist a set of skills and the confidence to take on an existing pattern or personal composition.

Exposure to six unique teachers affords any sewist, seasoned or novice, the opportunity to witness varied approaches even within the same technique. Experiencing the series as whole is sure to provide a comprehensive foundation and will get you well on your way in a joyful practice of hand-sewn quilting.

The blocks from each class can then be assembled together in any way you like to represent a sampler of skills. They would also make great pillows or patches for another textile.

We hope you will join us for all six of our quilting classes to increase your confidence and skill in hand sewing quilt blocks. You can sign up for the entire series here.
