Carola Russell

This class is for the following types of quilters:

I have never free motion quilted, ever. I have tried a few times, but no success. I have taken a Free Motion Class, but lack confidence to tackle a special quilt. I am self-taught, need a few pointers. I can free motion quilt but am not satisfied with some of the results. I want to build my confidence. This class starts at the beginning, assuming you know nothing about free motion quilting. There are many tips for successful free motion quilting. Combine all the tips and you will notice your confidence build!

Free Motion Quilting with Rulers – Intermediate

Carola Russell

Let’s ADD RULER WORK to our repetoire! If you have some Free Motion Quilting experience, this intermediate class is for you. You should have taken at least one free motion quilting class (or are self taught) in the past and are ready to hone your skills. Rulers are a great way to perfect “in the ditch” quilting, “navigate around corners”, perfect “channel quilting” and make consistent shapes such as curves and circles. Do not be intimidated by the description, this class is FUN for novices.

You must purchase a “RULER FOOT” and RULER SET before class

Stitch + Dye = Serendipity Quilt

Carola Russell

In this two-day workshop, we will approach dyeing from a different angle.

Day one: piece together a quilt top using assorted undyed, natural fibre fabrics, cotton, bamboo, linen, rayon and silk. Day two: stitch some more and in the afternoon it is time to dye the pieced quilt top.

All dyes will be ready to apply to your quilt. No mixing, no buckets, no masks, no measuring, no prior knowledge required. A “Low Immersion dyeing technique” will be employed to make a multi coloured quilt top. Simply apply the dye, wait and Voila! You will go home with a gorgeous one of a kind quilt top ready to quilt.

Saturday & Sunday April 22 & 23rd 10:00 to 4:00 and 10:00 – 3:00

Class Fee: $115.00 includes dyes. Pick up supply list
