Database Migrations Peewee

I am building my own web app using Flask and Peewee and I want to update a model to have a new column. How can I go about doing that without overriding existing data.

I found this: http://peewee.readthedocs.org/en/latest/peewee/playhouse.html#migrate. So I am assuming I add the field in models.py then write a migration script to add the column. Am I going about this the right way?
