Free-Motion Machine Quilting Workshop.

One day workshop 10:00 – 16:00 Sunday 30 April 2017.
£35.00

Example of Free motion Quilting

During this workshop you will learn a method which makes free machine quilting much easier than you imagined. It is a very useful skill which intimidates a lot of people but needn’t. You do, however, need a sewing machine with feed dogs which can be dropped, and a special free-motion quilting foot – you may have one and not know it!

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.

Free-Cut Curves Workshop

One day workshop 10:00 – 16:00 Sunday 7 May 2017.
£35.00

Example of Free Cut Curves

At the Free-cut Curves Workshop rulers and accurate piecing go out of the window and you throw yourself into free cutting and a whole new approach to patchwork. The addition of a few prairie points adds a little more fun to this lively workshop.

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.

Wholecloth Workshop

One day workshop 10:00 – 16:00 Sunday 14 May 2017.
£35.00

Example of Wholecloth Quilting

During the workshop you will learn the easy route to designing a traditional wholecloth quilt approximately 16″ x 16″ (40cm x 40cm). You will transfer your design to fabric then learn how to hand quilt.

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.

Silk Painting Workshops

One day workshop 10:00 – 16:00 Sunday 4 June 2017.
£35.00

Example of Silk painting

Silk painting is easier than most people believe. Usually I hear ‘ I can’t draw’, so I make the workshop more approachable by bringing along drawings which can be traced onto the silk. There is a delight in watching the paint gently flood into each resist controlled area and seeing the image develop on this lovely fabric.

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.
