Enjoy a weekend of sewing fun with Valerie and Jennie and the Lady Sew and Sew team
Fizz Bang Wallop! with Jennie Rayment
Play with shape, form and pattern and construct two or three innovative 12” square textured designs. Amaze at the ease with which intriguing manipulated effects can be produced by just folding, rolling, tweaking and twitching squares and rectangles. Combine a selection of the blocks for an innovative quilt or utilise one for the front of her Tote-ally terrific bag.
Enjoy a bit of Magic or go Crazy with Valerie Nesbitt
Take a bundle of fabric for one and just 4 fabrics for the other; both these quilts are easy to make and the stunning Kaffe Fassett fabrics Valerie used can be purchased from Lady Sew and Sew ahead of time or when you arrive. Great for beginners.
Twiddling and Fiddling with Texture lecture with Jennie Rayment in the evening
From tucking, pleating, weaving, twiddling and fiddling, marvel at the wealth of ideas and designs that arise from simple folding techniques. Ponder lightheartedly over all the delectable delights and devious conundrums that can be constructed from a little tweaking and twisting. Beware the talk contains not just an amazing amount of Show and Tell but a bit of stripping too (in the nicest possible way)!
