• Sept 16-17 : Get that Quilt Finished
o Part 1 - Quilting our projects is often the most challenging part of making a quilt. During this day you will learn about setting up your machine for successful quilting using your walking foot, the effect of using different threads, different quilting designs including linear, concentric, radiating and spirals, and making use of the decorative stitches on your machine
o Part 2 – Using a previously completed quilt top (or a piece of plain fabric – a “Wholecloth”), learn how to layer it up, quilt it and bind it. There will be opportunity for a little excursion into FMQ, if you want to try. (You will need to be able to drop your feed dogs). You will receive help and support in choosing an appropriate quilting design and in binding your quilt. How to add a hanging sleeve will also be included. The amount of work completed by each participant will depend on their existing skills and pace of work

• Nov 11-12 : Make it for Christmas
This is your chance to be Christmas Creative! Choose one of the options below
o Create a completely unique Advent Calendar – one that will be loved by its recipient long after the initial year. The use of non-traditional fabrics together with interesting trimmings will make for something really special.
o 4-Card Trick Table Runner –This can be made in traditional or contemporary Christmas fabrics or fabrics that reflect your home décor. It can be made to a length that fits your table by adjusting the number of blocks used. Make it as a purely decorative piece, or use thermal wadding so that it can protect your table from those hot dishes.
o Christmas Quilt Top – Go to town with Christmas fabrics to make a wonderful Random Rail Fence Quilt top. During this workshop, you will be able to complete the top, and discuss ideas for borders and finishing..

• Feb 3-4 : Simple Stained Glass Wallhanging
Simple technique creates stunning results. Create a wall hanging 20” x30” using scrap fabrics and fusible bias .

• April 7-8 : Log Cabin
Log Cabin – make one or a few log cabin blocks and put them together - perfect if you want a wallhanging, a table centrepiece or a runner.

I am new to patchwork and quilting. Sheena was extremely helpful especially as my choice of fabric was not ideal. She has great patience and skill at communicating. Really enjoyed myself. The time passed too quickly

-

Disappearing 9 patch is an intriguing way to make a quilt! I didn't quite get my top finished but with Sheena's illustrated handouts and her detailed demonstration of layering up and binding I am confident I will have it finished. Thank you Sheena. Excuse me, my quilt is calling, must dash!

An excellent weekend quilting. I am always amazed at how much I and others achieve in just two days. Clearly this is down to the excellent tuition, relaxed working atmosphere and friendly co quilters. Thank you Sheena for your encouragement. See you in September.

Sheena's Disappearing 9 Patch course was, as always with Sheena, a safe environment to push boundaries. I don't often do random - but I had decided to work in an array of batik - so the fabric lent itself to a random design. With Sheena's encouragement I stopped trying to control the layout of colours and just went for it and guess what - it looks wonderful. It is good to work at my own pace and know that I can call on help when its needed. Felt like a friendly supportive group with lots of chat and much needed coffee and muffins / biscuits. Thanks Sheena

Just completed 2 day disappearing nine patch quilt course with Sheena, my fourth course with her. Sheena is a gifted teacher, breaking course content down, sharing her skills and knowledge generously and inspiring us with her enthusiasm. Her flexible approach allows us to work at our own pace and put something unique and personal into our work. Lots of group and one to one help and support. Highly recommended.
