We have some simple quilt patterns such as nine patch and rail fence and we also have sewing machines for you to use, or you can bring your own. Lets get stitching for Project Linus!

This is a class for beginners or anyone who wants to get started with free motionFree Machine Quilt quilting. Free motion quilting is where we drop the feed dogs on our sewing machine so that we are in control of the stitch direction and length. With free motion quilting you can stitch in any direction and make lots of different patterns and it is a great way to add texture and interest to your quilting. At this class Esther will show you some simple patterns to get you started and cover the basic techniques of free motion work as well as lots of troubleshooting tips. This is a great way to get started and build your confidence with free motion quilting.
With Ann Campbell – Sunday 12th February 10am to 4pm
This is a great workshop for using up those fabrics you wish you had never purchased. We will make a small panel (approx 18 x 18) but if you want to make a larger piece then bring more material. Looks great yet so simple. Don’t believe me then come and try the technique for yourself! You will be hooked with the effect that can be achieved quickly and easily. Basic sewing machine required.
