On Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th of October I will be teaching a class at Hettie's Patch that I am pretty excited about because it's a class that I have been thinking about for a while ... well for as long as I have been thinking about teaching ... which in the greater scheme of things isn't all that long.
The class will cover the usual signature aspects of my designs including raw edge applique with a bit of a twist. I will be developing a new project over the couple of months that will be the starting point of this class - we will lookat design, use of colour & fabrics to create something of each students own design by either using my shapes or by developing their own. Alternatively you could also simply follow my design and focus you energies on perfecting the skills that will be developed in the class. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Just in case you had your heart set on working on one of the cushions from Pretty 'n Pink in this class then don't worry you can still do that! The skills that we will work on will be the same ... you will just finish up with a different project in the end.
A word of warning ... this class will be full on! Be prepared to work hard ... if we are going to go to the trouble of doing all of this we may as well make it worthwhile!!!
My understanding is that there has been enough interest in this class to book it out already ... however if there is enough interest there has been another date tentatively booked for November ... so give the girls a ring or drop them an email if you are interested.
Hettie's Patch is also now stocking my patterns!
I had better get back to my current project .... I want to know whose crazy idea it was to sew these shapes down by hand??????
Looks a bit like a dogs breakfast at the moment ...
I'll be back on Friday .. see you then!
