Patchwork & Craft Classes 4th Term 2013

Hi everyone,
Below is a list of the classes I will be running for the remainder of this year
Machine Quilting
Tuesday 17 Sept and/or Thursday 10 Oct 7pm - 9pm  NZ$15 each night
Would you like to improve your machine quilting skills? You have the basics but need practice, come along on one or both nights and Dianne will guide you on your quilting journey.
Chevron Quilt
Sunday 22 Sept 10am - 4pm NZ$40
Dianne has found 6 different methods for putting together a Chevron Quilt. This style is all the rage in the US at present, why not try it out for yourself? She will show you all 6 methods, you choose the one you want to make your quilt with (or try out all 6) and Dianne will show you how to create a very modern style quilt.
Above are two different styles of chevrons

Using Gel Mediums
Tuesday 8 Oct 7pm - 9pm NZ$15
Dianne will show you how to use Gel Mediums with fabric. It can be used in mixed media styles and contemporary patchwork, you can make gel transfers on fabric and stitch through it. Dianne will show you several ways this will work with fabric. Call in and see some samples
This one is using butter muslin with texture gels and then hand painting
This is an image from a magazine that I have covered with gel medium and made into something like a decal.

Modern Christmas Tree Quilt or Runner
Wednesday 16 Oct 7pm - 9:30pm NZ$20
Dianne has created a modern and easy to sew Christmas Tree pattern that can be used for table runners, placemats, quilts etc. Whilst Dianne made hers using all white as a background you could use different colours for the backgrounds.

Scrap Sensations
Sunday 20 Oct 10am - 4pm NZ$40
Make a quilt like Dianne's Kea. You use scrappy pieces of fabric on a calico base. If you make a small scale picture in class you will finish it quicker than making a larger piece. You can create almost anything using this method

Psychedelic Splash Whale Quilt
Sunday November 3, 10am - 3pm NZ$35
Dianne has designed this fun children's quilt (or adults if you love whales) using raw edge piecing so it goes together very quickly and only uses 2 fabrics (but you can use more) It is so quick to put together you will start quilting this on the day.

Come in and see me, or phone or email for more info on any of the classes.
