I’ll be teaching a couple of great classes at Quilted Straight in Port Gamble.
Sunday, October 23, 2016, 10:00 am to 4:30 pm
First you will learn to join pre-quilted blocks using several innovative techniques. Go home ready to make larger machine quilted quilts without all the work of trying to get it into your machine. The Quilt-As-You-Go method allows for more detailed quilting using a standard sewing machine since you're only quilting a small section at a time. Fast finishing concludes with super-fast binding. Is binding the quilt your least favorite part? Bindings and piping are a snap with this no-fail completely machine-stitched method. In this class you will be making a sample to take home to keep as a ‘how to’ example for your own quilts. Binding will never be the same again!
Fun & Fancy; Make a Purse
Monday, October 24, 2016, 10:00 am to 4:30 pm
Create stunning purses with Melody Crust based on the Two Hour Tulip Purse pattern that can be finished in practically no time. Make your own in class, embellish it with trims, ribbons, buttons, bows, lace, fabric, found objects and then dive into the wonderful world of beads. We will learn what beads to buy, how to sew them and how to make your own lavish beaded dangles and fringes. Basic sewing skills required.
We are so fortunate to have great shops! Let’s support them!
