This month our theme is hand sewing. Beth will guide us in the art of sewing fabric together without the use of a ma sewing machine. Using a needle and thread we’ll learn how to put the striving of the world on hold, and find peace in sewing pieces of fabric together. This will take the form of a workshop so there are some supplies you’ll want to bring to get the most out of the demo/skill workshop. We’ll learn the basics of hand stitching blocks and how to deal with angles, points, and corners.
Fabric – 4 – 2 ½ inch squares (coordinate colours for a 4 patch block )
6 – 2 inch diamond shapes – to form a star shape (60 degree angle – see photo) (note: diamonds in image are slightly larger than 2 inches)
Sewing supplies –
needle, thread to match your fabric shapes, small scissors, small ruler, mechanical pencil, needle threading implement (if desired). (see photo)
Show and Tell
Bring your fabulous quilting projects, big and small, that you’ve been working on and inspire others.
Set – Up and Clean – Up crew: Pat S – looking for volunteers to help Pat as the others that were singed up for the month of March either can’t make it until 9:30 or are unable to come at all this month.
See you all on Saturday!
