Sarah Payne - Saturday 30th May 2020
Free-Motion Embroidery & Quilting
A fun-packed day of not just one but TWO techniques!
In the morning session Sarah will show you how you can create a fun design using scraps of fabric and your free motion/embroidery foot on your sewing machine. You will learn how to create your design, transfer it onto fabric and then 'draw' it with your sewing machine. This is a fun experimental class and you will end up with one or more raw edged appliqué and free-motion stitched blocks that you can turn into a cushion, frame or use as the basis for a new quilt.
After lunch, in the afternoon you will take the morning’s newly-learned skills and apply then to free-motion quilting. Sarah will show you how to create a practice 'quilt sandwich' and how to add creative quilting designs to add interest to your quilt blocks. Sarah will also supply you with a number of prepared quilt blocks to play with, which you can then turn into a cushion, placemat, wall-hanging, etc when you get home. All in all a pretty fabulous day!
This course is priced at £99 per person (including lunch & light refreshments) and we only have 20 places available, so please be sure you book early to avoid the potential of disappointment!
We very much look forward to welcoming you along on our CraftyMonkies Sewing & Quilting Workshop!
