We had a fabulous day with two of our favourite contributors- Not only did we get some wonderful workshops out of everybody - but we can give you advance notice that Jennie and Paula are booked for a retreat Nov 24/25 2018 - SO SAVE THE DATE. We do know what they will be working on (and we have film to prove it!) but the venue yet to be decided.
Date: 23 - 24 November 2019
Location: Langstone Quays Resort, Hayling Island, Hampshire
Two great tutors to choose from. Come along for two days of Patchwork and Quilting inspiration Blazing Star with Jennie Rayment Fun fabric fiddling this weekend as we demystify and simplify this simply stunning block - The Blazing Star (or Lone Star) – which can be used as a medallion centre for a larger quilt, or just on it’s own.
Paula Doyle is an author, award winning quilter and tutor. One of the things she likes best is designing complex looking quilts which are made using simplified techniques to make them achievable and enjoyable to every quilter.
Don't you just love it when a simple idea works - this wreath is so simple and easy, and anyone can do it - so get the whole family involved! It's a no-sew project which uses up lots of plain fabric, plus a pinking blade for the rotary cutter and some tacky glue. click here for the pdf instructions: Thank you so much Paula for sharing Happy Christmas
Despite having put in 4 long days at the Festival of Quilts providing workshops and demonstrations these two ladies joined Dave, Matt and Val for a day's filming . Paula Doyle generously allowed us to use her lovely workshop and you can see us getting ready (!) - Look out for workshops with Paula on making her Tulip Tree Bag and on hand quilting but you can enjoy her mini-mosaics workshop now by clicking here: Julia Gahagan is passionate about miniature quilts and showed us how easy it is to create a small shadow applique project.
Btw..really enjoyed the mini mosaic video...lovely setting.Have attached a photo...many thanks....Lyn
Val: more weekend patchwork fun with Helen Deighan and her braiding discs - they do look like fun and also Mini Mosaics with Paula Doyle - what a great idea; you will definitely want to go and try this patchwork idea out as soon as possible.
