Machine Free Motion Quilting
Workshop - May

Instructor: Judy Irish

Machine quilters...start your engines...or sewing machines! Take the fear and mystery out of machine quilting on your home sewing machines. This fearless approach to quilting is based on doodling and non-technical designs which you create yourself. No marking, no copyrights, and no nervous break-down. We will have FUN playing with a variety of threads and see where your imagination will take you. With this no rules method you really can succeed and gain the confidence to go home and practice on your own quilts.

I'm looking forward to sewing with you on May 12, 2017 at Wooden Gate Quilts. I have been quilting for Kaffe Fassett for over 15 years and for Freddy Moran and other authors. See you soon! ~ Judy Irish, Instructor,

Level: All (Min 6/Max 12)

When:  Friday May 12, 1pm-5pm

Secret Keeper Doll Class - April

Instructor: Gina Chang

This is my favorite doll pattern for beginning doll makers. It’s a great pattern for learning how to make heads and hands, painting faces and beginning the technique of soft needle sculpting.

This little crone gnome designed by Julie McCullough has a sculptured face and hands and can be dressed in cotton prints, silks, or thrift store bargains! Embellish her with beads, buttons, flowers, or small accessories. Watch her personality develop as you build her!

When:  Saturday  April 8, 10am-4pm
              Sunday April 9, 11am-3pm
