Patchwork and Quilting Workshop with Green Man Quilts - Beyond the Ditch : Adventurous Quilting with a Walking Foot



NB - Date to be confirmed. Why is quilting your project so difficult? You know what it is like, you follow the instructions to create the quilt top and you reckon you have it all nailed. Then there is that phrase that strikes dread into our hearts ………………… “Quilt as Desired” What does that actually mean? How are you supposed to know what it is that you desire? Free motion quilting – that’s what they mean, right? If you use the walking foot, then you have to do that stitching in the ditch stuff – and how horrid does that look when your straight line looks like a tracing from an unsuccessful sobriety check! STOP RIGHT THERE! This workshop will give you opportunity to look at lots of different designs that you can achieve with quilting using your walking foot and send you away with the confidence to go "Beyond the Ditch .....!" Please note that the date for this workshop is a placeholder - drop me a message to register your interest.

What's included in the price?

This workshop will all take place using the magic of Zoom technology - which is actually pretty easy to access, despite even my susceptibility to technological mishap! If you have not used Zoom before, we can set up a short session in advance to get you comfortable. It will be an informal, creative day and it is up to you how much work you get done. I will provide clear instructions via some form of pattern download in advance, and be there throughout the day to help and support, give extra tips, tricks and instructions and give extra information that will not be on the download.

What you will need

Access to the internet Digital camera/Smartphone to upload photos of your work in order to receive feedback Sewing machine Rotary cutter, ruler and mat Fabric and thread You will need to be able to access the internet on a computer, tablet/iPad or smartphone/iPhone. You will also need to be able to print off any information that I will send, or be happy to access it on your device. It might make life easier for you if your device and your sewing machine are in the same room. A full materials list will be sent upon confirmation of your booking.

I have been sewing & making patchwork since I was tiny. Have you ever wanted to make a quilt? It looks so easy but do you find yourself thinking “What if I do it wrong?” or "it’s harder than I thought?” These questions are all normal so I put together a variety of programmes that can help. I didn’t start off being a confident seamstress, but I had someone who did not give up on me – and that has influenced me. My passion is in sharing skills. I would love to share that passion with you
