Craft Classes...Finally!

I have been talking about running crafty classes for such a long time now with nothing actually planned, I'd almost convinced myself it was never going to happen!

But hurrah! The stars aligned and dates are locked in. It's actually happening people!
So many exclamation points, can you tell I'm excited!!

So the first course 'Freestyle Piecing and Quilting' will be happening in November at Little Sparrow in Balaclava (Melbourne).

If you can answer yes to these questions, this is the class for you...
Ever wanted to have a go at patchwork and quilting but didn't know where to begin? Can you sew in a straight line? Don't like the idea of traditional quilting styles with strict rules and perfectly matching corners? Love re-purposing textiles?

No fussy cutting, following patterns, specialized equipment or complex fabric calculations required.

In this series of 3 x 2hr classes I will teach you simple piecing and quilting techniques, tips and tricks that will get you started on your creative quilting journey. We will work on small projects like pram or doll quilts/placemats, then you can use the techniques you learn here to make bigger projects at home. Check out the details of each class here.

These classes will run for 3 consecutive weeks at Little Sparrow in Balaclava (Melbourne) on Thursday 10th, 17th & 24th of November 2011 between 1pm and 3pm

Cost will be $90 + materials

Sewing machines and white cotton thread will be provided. You will need to supply your own materials and scissors. A list of requirements will be e-mailed once you have enrolled.

Having a sewing machine at home isn't essential but would be helpful for completing unfinished course work before the next class/stage.

There are only 6 places available so book early if you are interested. I'm taking bookings through the shop.

If you have any questions or suggestions for other classes, leave a comment and I'll get back to you quick sticks!
