Quilting: you know you want to!

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?
4. Finishing
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.

No on-site parking but plenty of parking in Silchester Road. For anyone coming by DART (with a sewing machine?!?! ) you can see that Glenageary station is very close.

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.

    Sounds like a good course, but not for me, sadly. I can’t sew for toffee. BTW, I wonder was there something wrong with your rss reed? Your last three posts only showed up on my Google Reader today.
    The fund raiser looks like it was a great success! Hope you raised loads of money.

      I can’t sew either! But I’m hoping to learn…
      Nothing wrong with your feed – I published a few posts that I had schedulded to publish at the time but didn’t finish – sorry for the confusion.
