Upcoming Give & Take Workshops

I will be teaching my two most recent Give & Take patterns at local quilt shops this summer. And both designs will help you get a head start on winter decorating. I know, I know, it seems so far away but you KNOW what happens once September gets here. The days seem to fly by and before you know it all the quilting plans you made get pushed aside. Why not start now and spend the more relaxed days of summer working on those projects.

The first class is Winter Magic. This design uses the fabulous Stonehenge fabrics from Northcott. The class is at Calico Cupboard Quilt Shop in Cordova Bay and they have made up kits for the quilt. You just have to grab a kit, add some fusible web and thread and you're all set.  This is a very short class, just 3 hours, but enough to teach you all about Give & Take Applique and how to make this fun quilt.  Class is next Tuesday, June 15th, 6:30 - 9:30 pm. Drop in to the store or give them a call (250-658-2722) to reserve your spot now!  Don't forget to tell them to set aside a kit for you if you want to make your quilt just like mine.

My other new pattern is Festive Forest and I am teaching this design at Satin Moon Quilt Shop on Saturday, July 10, 9:30 - 12 noon. Again, a short class with all the instructions and practice you will need to make the Give & Take tree blocks and the alternate blocks I used in my quilt layout. Brenda (Satin Moon's owner) has ordered fabrics just like mine or choose traditional holiday colors (red & green) for your version of the quilt. You can sign up for this class by phone too (250-383-4023).

I think both these designs can be displayed during the whole winter season, giving you lots of time to show off your work to friends and family. And, you'll have all that time left for your your holiday preparations!
