We received this email about openings for an upcoming workshop.

NEW FOR 2014:

Quilt Workshop Friday June 20, 2014 

“Easy-Peasy Curves”
A Top-Stitch Curved Piecing Workshop for Quilters

Hilary Rice          M. E. Studios        www.MEStudios.ca

You will be amazed at how simple it is to create with curves using this technique.  No more sewing only straight lines!  Hilary will walk you through the technique process, explaining the approach in 3 easy steps.  Soon you will be flying along wondering why you didn’t learn this sooner.

At the end of the day, you will have a small landscape quilt top prepared and possibly completed, depending on how fast you work.  Along the way, Hilary will offer embellishing suggestions such as use of sheer overlay, free motion stitching, beading, watercolour shading and accents.

Level: Confident Beginner to Advanced

Maximum:  20 Participants  

Kit Fee:  $30 payable to the Instructor 
Includes hand-dyed cotton fabrics for pieced top with a choice of ‘Day’ or ‘Night’ colouring, ‘Mountainscape’ pattern, embellishment sheers, use of watercolour pencils and a few beads.
