Topic: Field Trip
Another day on my field trip. Today's workshops are:
More Quick Gifts to Make: Sue is known for Quick, Quicker, and Quickest Gifts and this class is all about her newest and favorite gift projects. You will see ideas for every age and virtually every occasion. This is Sue’s favorite topic and many of these projects can be made in two or three hours.
Spring Leaves Art Quilt: Festive leaves floating through the air cheer your soul. Make this gentle leaf quilt with fused fabrics, an easy pattern transfer process, and decorative rotary cutter blades. It’s a simple design with lots of variation and options for embellishment and personal design.
Successful Paper Piecing: Trouble getting to the point in your quilt piecing? Paper piecing is easy, precise and variable (you can enlarge or reduce the blocks). Most importantly, you get perfect points every time. We supply pattern, fabric, and inspiration. Bring scissors and glue stick for this hands-on experience.
Top Secret Bindings: Learn how to make a perfect binding in this Know Before You Sew™ lecture. Problems like rounded, pointed, and tucked corners, lumpy finishes, and bindings that are not filled to the edge will be covered. Make your own sample and learn about bias, grain, double-fold, strip width, mitered corners and a smooth ending.
Eleanor Burns Five Perky Patterns: Eleanor shares her five newest patterns featuring accurate techniques and tools to achieve great perky points. Braid in a Day, Kylee’s Kite, Storm at Sea, Oriental Fan and Mini Dresden Plate offer a great range of variety—something for everyone! Come join the humorous presentation Eleanor is famous for.
Finishing Touches for Your Quilt: This is the class for alternative quilt binding techniques. Learn ways to do a scalloped edge, or how and when to consider a picot treatment instead of traditional binding. Learn how to use tools combined with tips and tricks to make a flawless, unique finish for your original quilts.
Kick It Up a Stitch: Nancy Zieman and her side kick—or should we say Sous Chef—Mary Mulari invite you to a second helping of Kick It Up a Stitch. “Lettuce entertain you” is the motto of their newest sewing and cooking extravaganza. If you attended the first helping of Kick It Up a Stitch, you know that sewing and cooking have a lot in common. You can sew or cook very simply—then Shazam! you’ll learn how to Kick It Up A Stitch. Nancy and Mary promise plenty of sizzle, spice, and sass, plus an entirely new menu for the second helping show.
With the exception of the last, these are all 45 minute sessions.
