Thursday May 30th Deborah O’Hare will teach “Moon Gazing Hare”. Deborah is “a contemporary quilter textile artist with a love of many techniques; producing machine embroidered and quilted pieces that incorporate my favourite medium – textile paint. Having studied Patchwork and Quilting and Machine Embroidery to City and Guilds level I now teach workshops and produce hand painted fabric, patterns and kits.” www.quiltroutes.co.uk
Thursday June 13th Sewing Day. Finish all those projects that are sitting in a cupboard. Or, just sit and chat with like minded sewers. Tea, coffee and biscuits all day.
Thursday July 25th Katherine Guerrier will teach “Snail Trail”.
Katherine is giving a talk two days before the workshop, on her career as designer and writer. This will be illustrated with a host of patchwork quilts that will, she hopes, inform and inspire us. The talk should last about one hour and will be a “hands on” tour of quilts made over the last twenty years with related stories and tips. Mostly scrap quilts representing her progress as a quilter, from the early use of dressmaking offcuts to designer fabrics custom made for quilters. Her talks are informal with opportunities for questions and answers. www.katharineguerrier.com
