A New Beginner’s Patchwork and Quilting Course
Monday, 24th February 2014
9.30 – 12.30 pm
The Old School, School Lane
Storrington RH20 4LL
See the course descriptions under Workshop heading. You will learn the terminology and the techniques that you need to know, to start on the road to quilting. At the end of the course, you will be comfortable with cutting fabrics, piecing them together into blocks by using your sewing machine in class.
You will make a Sampler quilt and learn how to put a quilt together. 8 sessions of 3 hours on alternate Monday mornings.
Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Before I started the Intermediate Quilting Class,
several of you suggested you would love to do the course, but couldn’t commit for various reasons. So I have opened the individual sessions to those of you who may be interested in joining a one off session on say, Sashiko or Bargello. I expect it will be popular so will send out an email to tell people and hope that it brings results.
In the meantime I have been working on my Wedding Ring Block and have several bits ready to put together. The Intermediate Quilting Class is working on the basis of making 12″ blocks and some of the instructions about do not work on that scale – say if they are making a whole quilt. Thank you Anja Townrow for your tutorial in the British Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. It is proving very useful.
I must be getting on with my own Celtic Knot block so it is ready for the class on the 28th February. Will put some photos in as soon as I have them. If you are interested in any of the techniques I am offering – keep a watch on my blog for when I advertise the dates.
Take care – Ann
