Following on from the success of the quilting workshop, @MaryLD was planning to run a Short course in patchwork & quilting
This would be a four-day course, run on one Saturday each month from 10-4p.m. starting towards the end of August/early September.
Mary has outlined the course as follows:
1. Cutting and piecing methods
starting with an overview of the main traditional types (you have to start somewhere!)
2. Starting to subvert the traditions
Create your own block for paper-foundation piecing or use a traditional method with your own “take” on fabric and colour selection
3. Putting it together
Adding borders -maybe; selecting backing and wadding; planning the quilting design; preparing piece for quilting; adding the quilting stitches; by hand or machine?
Completing the piece; binding and finishing
€275.00 for the full course
Location: St Paul’s Church Hall, Adelaide Road, Glenageary. See D in the map below. This is a lovely modern building, warm, clean and spacious. We can make tea or coffee and will have a separate space to eat a packed lunch.
So if you’re interested and on Twitter give @MaryLD a shout. Otherwise, drop a note in the comment box here and I’ll pass it on to Mary and pass her details on to you.
Hope to see you there.
