Skill Builder Classes

Skill Builder Classes

Conquer these Intemediate level skills by joining the class you have always wanted to learn.  Reasonably priced and fun to do – below are the dates and contents.  £20 a session!

Each class gives you a 4 hour intensive technique session in a variety of more accomplished quilting techniques. You will be making 12” blocks so that you can acquire the skills of those techniques and make you a proficient Intermediate Quilter! These classes develop the techniques required to make these blocks. certainly the Lone Star, Friendship Bouquet and the Perspective Boxes hopefully will conquer the stress of inset seams – Celtic Knot challenges working with care and attention to hand sewing (although some have done this by machine); Sashiko the Japanese stitching require care and even stitches; Bargello – care with matching seams and straight cutting and last but not least – Applique – by hand or machine – care and attention to detail.

Reasonably priced and at least 5 people booked to run a class. Below: Celtic Knot; Sashiko; Friendship Bouquet;  Lone Star; Applique; New York Beauty; Bargello; Perspective Boxes.  Dates below:

I will keep you posted about numbers, but please if you are interested and if you like to book, send me an email:  anntill2@tiscali.co.uk to tell me.  Ensure you give yourself enough time, since there is often preparation to be done prior to the class – for example, for the Celtic Knot, you will need to make your bias binding.  Let me know which class you would like to join.

 Have a good day!
