2nd – 4th Nov 2017

Tucked and Twiddled Waistcoats with Jennie Rayment

Manipulate, manouevre material into magical modes! It's fabric fiddling for all from waistcoats to vests or just comfy cushions or tactile quilts.

 

Dressmaking for All with Wendy Gardiner

If you have an outfit or two that still needs finishing, or a burning desire to create something new, join Wendy Gardiner, author of book  The Great British Sewing Bee, From Stitch to Style. She will help you create a well fitted garment of your choice, providing plenty of tips along the way.

 

Machine Embroidery with Carolyn Sinclair

This class will look at working with line designs to create Sashiko designs, quilt designs, redwork designs and other light weight designs which are quick to stitch. Different threads and appropriate needles will be used to add impact to these designs. Different ways of combining these designs into quilt design will be considered using both the features of the software and individual embroidery machines. This class is suitable for all level of experience but please advise on the application form which make and model of embroidery machine, and which make and version of software you use. This assists with planning the weekend.
