I have scheduled four workshops at QuiltWorks Northwest in Bellevue.
Super-fast Binding and Piping - March 10 from 10:30-1:30 PM NEW!
Is binding the quilt your least favorite part? Tired of humdrum finishes? Come and learn piping and binding techniques to make your quilts stand out in a crowd. In class you will be making samples of finishing methods to take home and use on your own quilts. Bindings will never be boring again!
Presser Feet to the Rescue! - March 10 from 2-4 PM
Do you have a drawer full of feet and no idea what to do with them? Then this lecture/demo is for you! They come in all shapes and sizes. There is a special foot for just about anything you can imagine. Melody will show feet and their uses. We will look at some of the feet perfect for decorative machine stitching.
Borders: The Final Chapter - June 16 from 10:30-1:30 PM
Pieced borders add something special! They can change the look of a quilt and add a wonderful finishing touch. Learn to add grace, spontaneity or sophistication or any effect you desire to your quilt. Solve the mystery of designing and sewing borders to fit your own quilt. Remember that with good planning a pieced border can be less work!
A Fine Line: Creating the Quilting Design - June 16 from 2-5 PM
Do you have a project that could use help with the “what, why & how” of quilting? Discover the elements of winning quilting designs and how to apply them to your tops. We will explore whether to hand or machine quilt, selecting, fitting and marking quilting design, all about thread, and the basics of batting and basting. The emphasis of this workshop is the creative use of the quilted line. Learn to successfully finish all your projects. This informative workshop is for both traditional and non-traditional quilters.
