CRAZY QUILT WORKSHOP April 15, 2011

Bev White will be speaking for the LFQG on Thursday evening, April 14. On Friday, April 15, she will be teaching a workshop on crazy quilting including basic hand embroidery, ( with reference to the possible use of machine embroidery ) to make a useful object...with some instructions for each...a shoe bag, a Christmas stocking, a cushion cover, a tea cozy, a wall hanging etc (see photos below).







For the workshop, you would need the following items:

For any one of these, about a half yard of cotton foundation fabric will be needed,
an assortment of varied scraps...( consider some colour co-ordination if you wish)
also consider some similarities in fabric content ( with suggestions of how to cope with differences )
an assortment of hanks of cotton hand embroidery threads ..six strands..( we will discuss the use of rayon threads)
a few ribbons or rickrack trim, if desired...optional !
hand embroidery needles, ( larger eye ) , thimble.
the usual machine sewing supplies, thread, scissors, pins etc
a sewing machine in good working order

This will be a busy...but no stress workshop...and the item chosen will NOT be completed in one day. " Mistakes " will be looked upon as opportunities for uniqueness and originality.

This would be a great workshop to try your hand at this technique without a huge time commitment to finish off a queen sized quilt :-).
