Winter is coming......and I'm sure you'll want a BREAK in February when the cold winds blow and snow or gray rainy days are in the forecast.  Why not JOIN ME in Hawaii for Quilting on the Beach.

I will be presenting 2 workshops:

Give & Take Applique Design Discoveries (2 days) - Feb. 8 & 9

Day one of this workshop will include learning the basic principles for the Give & Take Applique two-for-one technique, making a small Valentine project, and testing machine applique stitches to enhance your project. You will also learn my special tips for finishing small quilts and then create your own Give & Take Applique designs through a series of exercises with paper. I'll will work with each student to refine their designs and select one to make in fabric the second day. 

The excitement builds on day two as I show you how to turn your paper design into a pattern. You will test your design with practice fabric and then create a plan for your choice of project (such as a wall hanging, table or bed runner or lap quilt). After refining your design you will begin to create your unique Give & Take Applique masterpiece. 

Machine Quilting with Decorative Stitches (1 day) - Feb. 10

Did you buy that sewing machine with hundreds of stitches? Do you use them? Come to this class and learn how you can use decorative stitches to add interest and excitement to your machine quilting. Learn how to select the right stitches, choose needles and threads and make a set of samples for reference for all your future quilting projects.
