2010 Classes

The list of 2010 classes has just been released. We have yet another exciting year of classes with something for everyone from machine quilting to needle turn appliqué to painting with dyes and creating realistic landscapes. This years teachers include - Michele Hill, Deborah Louie, Kay Haerland, Chris Jurd, Jennie Osborne, Christine Sands, and myself (Tamsin).

The current newsletter is available a

Michele Hill is teaching twice this coming year - in March and November. Author of William Morris in Appliqué Michele's classes are based on William Morris designs. The appliqué can be by hand or machine.

Deborah has introduced two new classes this year: - a Free Motion class to give you confidence and knowledge on how to free motion your own quilts and Stage 6 Key Line Quilting is based on Deborah's award winning quilt from the Sydney Quilt Show. Using black thread the quilt design is quilted onto fabric and then coloured.

Kay Haerland is back with us for another year and her class Tactile Surface Embellishment is an fantastic class which shows you artistic techniques, which will assist you in all kinds of future quilting embellishments and landscape enhancements. Kay's classes takes you from traditional quilting techniques and guides you into creating realistic landscapes using many different techniques and methods.

Chris Jurd once again is teaching Mariner's Compass, the quilts created in the class last year where amazing and all different - check out the photos of some of the ladies work on Chris' blog. Chris this year will also be teaching a New York Beauty Class - if you want to learn how to foundation piece Chris' class is the one to do.

Jennie Osborne is teaching two stunning quilts this year - Dawn which features needle turned appliqué and hand piecing (though you could machine piece) is a large quilt suitable for a queen size bed and Peaches is a smaller quilt which features Dresden plates (paper pieced), needle turned appliqué and stitcheries. Jennie is traditionally a hand quilter and her classes are relaxed where everyone moves at their own pace. Jennie is also teaching two other classes - Introduction to Needle Turned Appliqué and Introduction to Hand Quilting, these classes are a great way to get a sample of these two techniques.

Christine Sands is our other new teacher for 2010. Christine will be teaching dressmaking and exploring your overlocker. Having years of experience teaching people of all ages and skill levels and Christine will take you through the steps to create a beautiful and wearable garment. Her overlocker classes will expand your knowledge of how to use your machine and open up whole new knowledge of what an overlocker is capable of doing.

My (Tamsin) classes this year cover everything from beginner's quilting to painting with dyes. The classes that I teach are fast and easy were you will walk away with a finished or near finished project. Three classes - Painted Geisha, The Fans and Introduction to Sashiko by Machine have an oriental theme. In Fast and Easy Log Cabin and Scrappy Schoolhouse Quilt you will be using templates/rulers designed to make the quilt construction faster and accurate. The new series of Make and Take Classes are half day classes designed to give you a taste of simple fun projects.
