FREE MACHINE QUILTING - £30

With Esther Anderson

Tuesdays 9th and 16th April     10.30am to 12.30pm

This is a class for beginners or anyone who wants to get started with free motion quilting.  Free motion quilting is where we drop the feed dogs on our sewing machine so that we are in control of the stitch direction and length.  With free motion quilting you can stitch in any direction and make lots of different patterns and it is a great way to add texture and interest to your quilting.  At this class Esther will show you some simple patterns to get you started and cover the basic techniques of free motion work. This is a great way to get started and build your confidence with free motion quilting.  The class is over two sessions so you can hopefully practice between them and we can troubleshoot issues and try more complicated patterns at the second class.

 

LITTLE LOG CABIN FLOWERS - £30  With Esther Anderson 

Tuesdays 23rd and 30th April 10.30am to 12.30pm

Perfect for Spring this project is a crocus and two tulips and the blocks are foundation pieced.  There is also a full size crocus if you want all your flowers to be the same size.  You can mix and match the blocks and make a cushion or wall hanging.  Foundation piecing is a great technique to learn and is easy once you know what you are doing, and you hopefully will after this class.  Suitable for all skill levels.
