Craft Classes Sept-Nov 2017

Below are the craft classes we are running from September through to November. If you are interested in attending any please contact me for more details.
Take 1 Block Quilt
Sunday 17 September 10am - 4pm
This quilt uses only one block but it can be put together in so many different ways and then the layouts for the quilt have many options as well. So effective, can be scrap or choose your colourways.
Table Runner
Tuesday 5th Sep & 12 Sept 7-9pm
I will show you how to make the blocks and then complete the table runner over a 2 night class. You can also use this as a skinny wall hanging, or make more blocks and make a bigger quilt.
Ratty Rat - A Jill Maas doll class
Sat 30 Sept/Sun 1 October 9:30am - 4pm $110 + $10 pattern fee
Jill Maas creates the most wonderful and unusual cloth dolls. Ratty Rat is her latest. This lovely character is in his underwear and has a hot water bottle ready for bed.
Jelly Roll Applique Quilt
Sunday 29 October 10am - 4pm
Dianne will show you how to make a quick and easy jelly roll quilt background over which you can add any applique patterns you want. I chose to use a large flower but you could use a cat/dog, bird, butterfly etc. I will help you create a quilt unique to you.
Honeycomb Spin with Anna Hicks
Saturday 11 November 9:30am - 4pm
The ever popular hexagon has had a contemporary spin, instead of hand piecing learn an easy glue basting method and spiral machine quilting. Learn to play with colour, how to prepare and apply hexagons, spiral quilting and how to finish them with a hidden facing. Below are 3 different variations.

Hopefully something here interests you - so please contact me regarding coming to the classes.

Shop Hop

The Shop Hop started last Saturday and we have had quite a few ladies through already. Lovely to see everyone.
This weekend (12/13) we will be open both Saturday and Sunday as we have the wonderful Jill Maas in store teaching her lovely Daphne Duck. Whereas we are not normally open on a Sunday, this weekend we will be.
There is a pic of Daphne Duck in the post below.
