It is time once again for Kyleigh’s next Gift of Love class this Saturday 9 March. Kyleigh has made these delightful little zipper purses from Atkinson Designs. They are just perfect for your handbag/sewing bag in which to carry any number of items – I think they would be perfect to pop in your pocket especially when going to the movies – room enough for a credit/eftpos card, mobile phone and a little change for a drink or popcorn. Of course they would be perfect to hold a thimble, needles and embroidery scissors. The bigger purse could even hold some paper pieces and pre cut fabrics for the times you are stuck waiting in the school queue or at sports training.
This twin purse is just to cute..........
Kyleigh will show you how easy it is to pop in a zip and how once you know the tips and tricks you can then make your little purse as big as you like. These are a winner for me – I absolutely love these little cash and carry’s to hold all manner of items.
This is a great class also for any little sewers (high school age min.) as they would make perfect gifts for girlfriends and family. If you would like to join Kyleigh for this fantastic class please call the shop to book your pink chair.
The second class is very exciting - machine quilting class with Bev McClune. This class is open to all quilters interested in domestic machine quilting regardless of current ability. Bev believes that machine quilting is as individual as we are. Beginners to machine quilting will be shown start - stop lines of stitching, play around with free motion quilting and how to transfer easy designs on their quilt without marking. Bev will also share some easy designs that can be practiced at home to improve skills learnt during the class.
For ladies that have skills with free motion work Bev will move them into learning a skill that they are wishing to master for example – designing spaces and filling these spaces with background quilting. Bev will also demonstrate the basics of feathers and how they are formed (formal/informal or anyway you wish). Feathers can fit any space on a quilt and over the weekend you will cover many variations of these.
Bev has a very hands approach in her classes so there is lots of demonstrating and copying. She finds this method the most successful for ladies to grasp the many and varied techniques covered over the two days.
If you would love to improve your quilting skills this is a must do class. Places are limited to ensure that Bev is able to spend quality time with everyone so please call the shop to book your pink chair. Guaranteed to be a very creative and inspiring class for all who attend.
I leave you with a quote from Walt Disney "It's kind of fun to do the impossible".
