Patchwork & Craft Classes

I have scheduled a selection of patchwork and craft classes for this first term of 2014
Applique Quilt Class - 3 Tuesdays 18 Feb, 4 March & 18 March 7-9pm
OR Sunday 9 March 9:30 - 4pm
Dianne has designed this gorgeous applique quilt to showcase a few different techniques - fusible applique with decorative machine stitches around the raw edges (could be done by hand but will take much longer to do) machine quilting and then put the piece together using Quilt-As-You-Go methods.
Table Runners - Wednesday 12 March 7-9pm
Dianne has designed this table runner which is easy to make, no binding and can be embellished with appliques. Your choice of colour and quilting and appliques makes the difference. See my samples -

Don't they look quite different.

Music Quilt Wednesday 26 March 7-9pm
Would you like to try something different design wise? Dianne created this quilt design for the Bernina Music Challenge. It only uses 2 fabrics. Dianne will help you create a quilt of your own and show you how this technique works.
Fabric Vases - Saturday 29 March 1-4pm
With the recent 6.2 earthquake I lost 4 lovely glass vases so I thought I would like to try some that won't get broken - All done on the machine using lovely fabrics and a variety of shapes you can use.

You can put a glass jar/vase inside these and hide it.

Mixed Media Playtime - Tuesday 1 April 7-9pm
Would you like to play with mixed media items? Dianne has been playing with Lutradur, xpandapaint, heatguns, paint, stamps, stencils and butter muslin to make these wonderful shapes and creations. Can be incorporated into patchwork and quilted or placed onto canvas. Come along and create your own unique art.

Garden Trellis Quilt - Sunday April 6th 10am - 4pm OR Wednesday Feb 26th and Thursday Feb 27th 7-9pm
Come along and see how easy it is to create this lovely quilt. Your squares can be straight or 'on point' like mine. Dianne can show you some variations including an Argyle design and using a single or double trellis. Very simple to put together even though it may seem complicated.

Contact Dianne about putting your names down for these classes.
