New classes are coming up to take you to the level you want for your quilting and sewing.
24th June – – 10 am – 2 pm
Get the best out of your sewing machine! This class takes you through the basic core knowledge you should know about your sewing machine. Then it dabbles into the extras your manual doesn’t tell you, using other bits and pieces you have been given with it; trying out stitches you have been afraid to use; so that you come away saying – gosh I didn’t know I would be able to do that and now I can. Great class, lots of fun – do you know the manufacturers make at least 27 different types of sewing machine needles – which one should you choose? and many other bits of info to make you a better sewist!
3rd July – Monday evenings – 3rd, 10th, 17th, 31st July; 7th, 14th, 21st Aug; 4th, 11th, 18th Sept – 7 pm – 9.30 pm
Ten fun and fast sessions to make you a basic quilter. While you make a simple sampler quilt, you will learn the core skills of how to make a quilt – from learning about needles, threads, fabrics and waddings, while learning sewing techniques to get that quilt as perfect as you can. Hundreds of gals have taken this class with me and are still enjoying the joys of quilting.
You will need your own sewing machine and sewing kit. See further descriptions of the class under workshops or click on the title.
