1. QuiltSmart – stitching curves with no curved piecing!

Learn the QuiltSmart principles of foundation piecing to stitch curves without any curved piecing. The blocks you make can be the start of a quilt, or used as the cover for a block holder. Choose from Double Wedding Ring, or Pumpkin Seed.

Note: These quilts are a GREAT way to use up your scrap stash!

2. Felt Embroidered and Embellished Sewing Case

Spend the day with Glenda creating a very pretty cover for a lovely Sewing Case. You will use wool felt and learn many different stitches to embroider and decorate using beautiful Eleganza Threads, plus embellishments. 

3. Using Templates and the art of Stitching by Hand

Use any of the “Meredithe Clark Signature Collection” template sets to create fantastic blocks. Learn everything there is to know about using Templates, and all the proper principles of Hand Stitching. Template samples can be seen on our website or in-store.

Saturday 2nd July, 10am – 4pm

4. Enjoy Applique and Stems with easy techniques!

This class will cover both the Back Basting Method of Applique, plus Turned Edge Applique without the Needle Turning!

Also learn two different ways to make tiny narrow stems through to wider stems without using a Bias Maker.

We will be working on a small block to practice these techniques. This block can then be used on the front of a block holder if you wish.

5. La Passacaglia (from the Millefiori book) – or choose a different English Paper Piecing project from either the Millefiori 1 or 2 books.

This is a great chance to start stitching ‘La Passacaglia’. Let Glenda guide you through the different structural elements involved, and assist you with the best use of your fabric selections.
