New techniques on Quilt as You Go!

We are always striving to share multiple techniques to suit all quilters!

This year we were pleased to have the experienced Pauline Rogers, sharing her QAYG skills, but unfortunately Pauline is now unable to come due to health reasons. We wish you a speedy recovery Pauline!

So to ensure we continue to provide new skills to you all we have firstly approached yet another very popular, experienced teacher – Anita Ellis, to present two ‘different’ QAYG classes on Thursday 20th, replacing what was scheduled.

QAYG with the Westalee SashleeQuilt template…with bonus easy Stitch in the ditch 
11-1pm
2hrs – Hands on Domestic Sewing Machine – Suitable for All

Love to quilt smaller blocks and then join them with sashing?  Thin sashing, fat sashing, quilted sashing, you name it, Anita Ellis of Hillside Quilting, an Accredited Westalee Design Educator, will take you through the steps required to create beautifully flat quilts with no unsightly bumps.   This class utilises the Westalee Design Sashlee Quilt Ruler to make this a simple task.  A small investment of $20 for this versatile tool will have you turning out amazing creations which can be as large as you like.  They all start off as small blocks and just grow.

Bonus too, the Sashlee Quilt Ruler is a demon for stitch in the ditch and Anita will take you through this and other stitch in the ditch methods that take the fear out of this dreaded process.

A class full of techniques to make your everyday quilting a breeze.

This is a technique class that will have you joining pre-quilted blocks into a small finished quilt top.  The skills that you develop are easily transferred to many of your patchwork quilts at home.

Secret Seams….. I can’t believe it is Quilt As You Go!
1.30-4.30pm

Of course we are not just providing QAYG classes on domestic machines – the traditional way to complete larger quilts in bite sized pieces BUT we also have a QAYG class using your longarm machines!

We are still working on the other two time-slots that have now been left vacant. All students will be contacted via email to discuss options moving forward.

I can say that one NEW class is going to be ‘AMAZING!’ – just waiting on some details to go live with this one!

So share the news with your friends on these new classes and let’s fill them up to say thanks to our teachers who are working so hard to bring these to you.
