Over the next few weeks I am teaching a couple of workshops at the Quilthouse is Geelong (Grovedale). There are still a couple of spaces in each of them so on the off-chance that I have any 'local' readers, here are the details:

Fabric to dye for - Saturday May 26th, 10am-3.30pm:

Ever wanted to dye your own fabrics? In this full day workshop you will create a wonderful selection of hand dyed fabrics perfect for your next quilt or project. Aimed at the beginner, this workshop will teach you the basic dyeing method ( using fibre reactive dyes), as well as colour mixing and colour graduations. By the end of the day you will have 16 fat quarters or 4 mts of fabric ready to use, plus2 unique hand dyed silk scarves all that you have dyed yourself. Come and join the fun, you will be amazed how easy it is! Fabric, scarves and dyes are included in the class cost!!

Free motion machine embroidery - Saturday June 9th, 10am - 3pm

In this all day workshop you will learn the secrets behind free motion machine embroidery using decorative threads and stitches to create an image. Learn the techniques in the morning moving on in the afternoon to create a beautiful design suitable to frame or make up into a small cushion or wallhanging. You do not need to have any machine embroidery or machine quilting experience however your machine MUST be able to ‘drop the feed dogs and you will learn to adjust the bobbin tension and work with thick decorative threads in the bobbin. Be thrilled with what you can create with your machine. Kit including threads and fabrics are included in the class cost.

If you are interested in doing either of these classes, please go to The Quilthouse and click on classes.

Would really like to do this class but it's the long weekend and I have some things organised. Can you let me know if you run it again?
