• Sep 22- 23: Star Light, Star Bright – NEW COURSE FOR 2018
A weekend to create stars! Using a variety of techniques (including Half & Quarter Square Triangles, Flying Geese, Foundation Piecing – to name a small selection), develop and enhance your cutting and piecing techniques. You will learn approximately 6 different block designs (from a selection of 10), though you do not have to make each of them and can make multiples of some. You will also learn how to put them together to make a wall hanging. The amount of work completed by each participant will depend on their existing skills and pace of work

• Oct 6-7 : Simple Stained Glass Wallhanging
Simple technique creates stunning results. Create a wall hanging 20” x30” using scrap fabrics and fusible bias

• Nov 10-11 : Fabric Dyeing using Procion Dyes
o Double Dyeing – During this part of the workshop you will produce a set of related colours of fabric perfect for any textile project. As a result of the Double Dyeing technique, the first colour glows through magnificently
o Ice Dyeing – It’s magical! As the ice melts the colour is drawn into the fabric
o Resist Techniques – folding the fabric and tying threads etc will all interfere with the ingress of the dye into the fabric – try a variety of the techniques and see what happens! The amount
o Tray Dyeing – One of the more interesting uses for a cat litter tray!
Please note that this workshop is £180 and includes all chemicals and dyes.

A fabulous day constructing stars and half square triangle blocks for the surrounds. I had never used triangles before and hoped to come away from the two days a better cutter and more accurate pieces. I certainly felt that I had achieved that along with a stash of cut pieces and constructed blocks ready to be worked into a quilt top. ( I always want to make more than the time on the course allows for!) Sheena is an excellent teacher, generous with her time and support and offers many tips and hints to help us further. I left with a comprehensive set of notes confident that I could complete my rather ambitious project! Thank you Sheena, see you soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed the two day course supported by Sheena's patience and inspiration.

I attended the Fibonacci for Quilters recently. Although I am a reasonably experienced sewer, I was a complete novice to quilting. The group was small enough that Sheena was able to give us individual help as needed and by the end of the weekend I had produced something that I will be proud to display!

It was fabulous to have you along for the weekend. You had such fabulous ideas and really worked so amazingly hard. Do send me a photo of it in situ. Well done.
