Workshop - January 25, 2019

We have planned a new workshop for Jan. 25 th.  This is a workshop to learn how to hand quilt. This class will be taught by one of our own members Linda Hoiko, Linda has been hand quilting for over 40 years, many of you may have seen her work displayed at our past quilt show. Linda has won many prizes for her hand quilting and will say she owes it all to practice, practice and more practice. Linda will teach the basics and provide the tools you will need to become a hand quilter.

We will also be having a wokshop in Apil fo wool applique.  This workshop will be in conjunction with Special Events, more info to follow.  Samples were shown at our November meeting.

Workshop - October 22, 2019

On Oct. 22nd, participants enjoyed a day with Lisette Leveille doing free motion quilting.  Lisette had many tricks to share with our members, including:  feed dogs, stitch length, speed, quilting gloves, bobbin thread and much more. 

Participants practiced, practiced and practiced some more.  They built confidence and learned to relax at their machines (the trick is to remember to breathe).

Many handouts were provided and all participants left with enthusiasm to finish their blocks and sew them into a bag.  Lisette provided the instructions and training on free motion quilting so that everyone attending can now go home and work on their own projects.

Thank you Lisette and thank you ladies for your participation, laughs and sharing.
