Online Interactive Workshops x 4: Comprising 12 x Quilt Blocks entitled Possibilities
We're really excited to be hosting this four-part Quilt Block of the Month series of workshops with top US-based longarm quilter, Charisma Horton! The 4 x classes are spread out between April-October 2022 (homework between classes will be required!) and you will learn 3 x quilt blocks during each workshop (12 blocks in all!), the aim being to create a whole quilt by the time you complete the course. Though the one-off price of £100.00 may be me more than what we usually charge for individual workshops, this four-part series (12 hours in total) represents huge value for money as you'll be sewing along with one of the very best. Here's Charisma to tell you more!:-
Introduction by Charisma:-
Hi, I'm Charisma Horton and I'm absolutely delighted to have been asked to join the CraftyMonkies talent pool of craft experts/tutors! I have been a professional longarm quilter for 12 years now, having first taken the leap into pattern design in December 2018. Since then I have been picked up in almost a hundred crafting/quilting publications, I have published no fewer than 300 of my own designs and I'm a regular contributor to major fabric companies! I created this Quilt Block of the Month, called Possibilities, so I could share my love of using traditional blocks in a different way, using new designs and lots of colour. This is a 96" x 96" (inch) quilt with a variety of blocks and fabrics and I'm absolutely convince you're going to have so much fun making it with me - I look forard to welcoming you along 'in-class' with Rachel and myself: see you for the first date on 22nd April 2022!...
What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-
During this Block of the Month (BOM) Series you will be with Charisma for 4 x three-hour sessions and you will learn 3 x blocks in each of the four sessions! There is a variety of techniques in this quilt from regular patchwork, templates and Paper Piecing (or Foundation Paper Piecing: FPP). Charisma will also share her different quilting designs if that is of interest to any of you!
Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
Charisma tells us that the skill level for the Possibilities series of workshops is Advanced Beginner. Please don't be daunted as Charisma will be there to walk you through each block and you will have plenty of time to master the technique. But - a little word of warning here! - you will have homework to do between each session of this series - after all, you can't make a stunning quilt in just 12 hours of class time and we're great believers in " you only get out what you put in"!...
Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
You will need your basic sewing supplies, your pattern (created by Charisma and included when you book & pay to attend this series of workshops) and your fabric.
Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
All of the fabric requirements are listed on the pattern that you will get following your registration. There is also a colour key included in the pattern. Feel free to change any colours, use prints, scraps, etc. The idea here is to really make this your own quilt project! Charisma used solids for her prototype and she can make kits available for purchase in her online shop. Please note that US shipping rates will apply.
Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
- Straight-edge Ruler
- Seam Ripper (let's be honest we all do it!)
Pattern Information relevant to this Online Interactive Workshop:-
The pattern (usually $35.00 USD if bought separately) is included within the £100.00 fee to join this series of workshops and will be emailed to all those who book to join
