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

Waves 2 detail by Dorothy Russell

During this workshop you will learn to create both straight and curved wave-like shapes in fabric.

In blues/greys/greens they resemble the sea, but have many other applications. The ‘waves’ have a slightly 3D visual effect.

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.


Free-motion Machine Quilting including Applique Workshop.

One day workshop
Sunday 29th April 2018. 10:00 – 16:00
£35.00

Example of Free Motion Quilting at a Dorothy Russell Workshop

During this workshop you will learn a method which makes free machine quilting much easier than you imagined.

Applique will be included. 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, ask me, and a special free-motion quilting foot – you may have one and not know it!

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.


Bowls/3D Workshop

Sunday 6th May 2018. 10:00 – 16:00

They are very satisfying to sew and make welcome gifts. Once you understand the principles, you can experiment with your own ideas in a variety of fabrics and forms.

 

Appropriate for all ability levels.
