Craft Classes 2015

These are the classes I have for the first term of 2015.
Painting on Fabric
Either 3 Tuesdays 10/17/24 March 7pm - 9pm NZ$45
OR Sunday 22 March 9:30am - 4pm NZ$45
Dianne will show you how to paint and draw on fabric and create and embellish your fabrics using a variety of different paints, stencils, stamps, screens etc. You will learn how to make your own stencils, stamps and screens from everyday items you have around the house. Come along and have fun creating your own new fabrics and changing your existing dated fabrics into something more modern and usable.

You can create skies and landscape backgrounds as well. Above are some examples.

Bunting Quilt
Thursday 12 March 6:30pm - 9:30pm NZ$22.50
There are several fabrics arriving in store that are preprinted panels of bunting. I don't want to make bunting (there is only so much you can have of that around) so I had a play and see what you can create using those fabrics, which are designed in triangular shapes. Here is one example - I made them into rectangles by adding side triangles in background fabric.
If you don't have a bunting panel then I have a triangle template for you to use ordinary fabric to make something like this. There are lots of different settings. Come along and have a play with triangle piecing.

Applique Garden Quilt
Thursday 26th March 6:30pm - 9:30pm NZ$22.50
Dianne designed this applique garden quilt so that you can have fun designing your own garden, including a couple of snails and ladybirds. Make a wall hanging or full bed size quilt, your choice.
You will make as many appliques or as few as you require for the size project you want to work on, use dark or medium background, whatever you desire.

Vinyl Mesh Bag
Tuesday 31 March 6:30pm - 9:30pm NZ$25 + $15 pattern fee
The ladies who have made bags before have loved this class, it is really easy to make something different and useful. With lots of different colours available in the vinyl you can match or contrast to any fabric you want. Come and check out Diannes samples.

Jennies Half Nighter Patchwork Class
Jennie will be setting a date soon for June and/or July so if you are interested in attending the Half Nighter class then please call me to let me know you are interested and I can advise once a date is set.
