Exploring Appliqué

An all day workshop that explores all aspects of hand appliqué, this is a very hands-on class.

Lots of tips and good helpful information. Class also includes a choice of three patterns for students to use to apply these new skills.

Back to Basics

Working with a block that is a house with a star pieced into the design, students will explore the basics of hand piecing. With so many quilter's getting their first taste of quilting on today's wonderful sewing machines…there are many who have never had the chance to try or understand the joys of piecing a block by hand. We all love our machines and wouldn't trade them for anything, but hand piecing not only helps us understand fabric better, it is a wonderful way to do something satisfying with all those little bits of waiting time that crop up during the week…time spent waiting in the dentist's office or sitting in the bleachers at a child's sports practice. There are also those times when we want to sit and visit with friends…but still work on a project…after all that's what quilting has always been about. This workshop will get students started on a small project that's not only portable and social, but stress
reducing as well.

Time: Full Day      Limit 20

How Do You Do That Hair?

Over the years, I have added to the dimension and texture of my appliquéprojects with an embroidery style that evolved from the loose and simple way I was taught stitchery as a young child. Add to that the techniques I developed as I learned to work with various paint mediums, and you have "hair."Participants receive appliquépatterns of the heads of a young girl and boy and learn these easy embroidery techniques that will enable them to add realistic hair to any project that includes figures. It is not necessary to be a stitcher to learn this, so grab some floss and have a little fun.

Time: Half or Full day      Limit 20
