JUNE:

Quilt as you go with Stephanie Knudsen

Stephanie now resides in Sydney and will be in Perth to present this workshop.

This workshop was your top request from the Workshop survey.

 Quilt as you go (1 1/2 day workshop)

If you are short on time or on space, making a quilt in sections and then joining it together with the quilting already done is the way to go. There are many methods of quilt as you go and in this class we will explore the making of individual complete blocks, quilted blocks with batting and backing, ways to join these pre quilted blocks and how to break down a larger quilt into manageable sizes to make it easier to quilt.

 Date:  Saturday 30 June 2018

Venue: Alexander Park Craft House, Clyde Road Menora

Time: 9.30am – 4:30pm
