Sarah Payne - Saturday 8th May 2021
Machine/Hand-Edge Applique Masterclass
On Saturday Sarah Payne is here to hold your hand if you have ever fancied learning to create applique designs but never quite have the courage to give it a try. On this one-day workshop you will work on an applique panel that you can turn into a cushion or a centre panel for a quilt. Sarah will guide you through different techniques that you can use to create a unique work of art. Sarah will supply you with templates for a number of different designs so you can make something you are going to treasure.
Sarah will cover:
- Machine sewn raw edged applique
- Machine stitched needle turned applique
- Hand Applique using the drawn thread method
You can choose from a traditional Baltimore style applique design or a more graphic design such as the Birdsong design below. Whatever design you choose, you will be sure to create a unique piece that you will treasure for ever.
Jennie Rayment - Sunday 9th May 2021
On Sunday 17th May you will explore the exciting possibilities for patchwork play with the 'Queen of Quilting' Jennie Rayment with just two contrasting fabric colours. From simple squares and a couple of strips, discover how to create a variety of traditional pieced designs from Snail's Trail, Hunter's Star to Delectable Mountains.
Learn to work with half and quarter square triangles, get the gist of the grain, understand the intricacies of perfect seams, points and so much more. Make one of the patterns into a bag or explore all three techniques for future use. The 'Queen of Quilting' will guide you through every step of the way! Machine or hand sewing if preferred. No templates required - just cut and sew!...
Full details of everything you require for this course will be emailed to you after you have booked. We cant wait to see you!
