Satin Moon Quilt Shop

Satin Moon Quilt Shop is brimming with Christmas goodies! Brenda invited local Victoria designers and artists to bring items for a Christmas Bazaar. The classroom is full of wonderful gifts. From small items (like Lisa's luggage tags) to large quilts (my Gingerbread & Cranberries quilt is for sale), you'll find some very unique and interesting choices.

The new Spring Class Brochure is also now available. I create the brochure for Satin Moon and it is always so much fun to be the first to see all the classes and projects each session.

Brenda has selected a broad selection of classes for all skill levels. If you are a beginner, there are projects where you will learn basic quilting skills, learn to work more effectively with colour, machine and hand applique, and several sewing projects. Intermediate students can explore machine and handwork techniques in more detail, work on design and paint and dye fabric.

Here are a few of the classes I will be presenting at Satin Moon:

Hand Applique - Needleturn Leaves (a short 2 hour session on Tuesday, January 26th)

Beginner Needleturn Applique (one-day, Sunday, March 7th)

Cut & Paste Pickle Dish -my latest Give & Take Applique design (one day, Thursday, March 18th)

3D Applique with Silk Fabrics (another short session - 3 hours on Tuesday, March 23rd)

Mini-Dream Landscape - learn a unique way to make ANY landscape - machine sewing and embellishment, Saturday, March 27th

My Machine Quilting series is running again:

- 101 is the basic beginner class to build a foundation for machine quilting your quilts.
- 201 is all about stippling and free motion designs.
- 301 builds on your knowledge and skill to enrich the surface with bobbin quilting with thick threads.

My last class for the spring is Sheer Overlays - working with a wide variety of fabrics including sheer organza to create landscapes and underwater scenes. We'll develop expertise in creating interesting collage designs and incorporate embroidery and beading.

I hope these have piqued your interest! Brenda has a SPECIAL OFFER - 10% off class registrations until Sunday, December 13th. You can call the store and register by phone or stop in to see the samples in person, and check out the Bazaar too!
