Flamazing Friends All Day Sew (at the Christmas Goose)

flamazing

With two PJ parties in the books we have decided to put another one on the scheduled but with a few twists. This time around we will be doing a day time sew-in! Right before school starts again we will have the opportunity to gather together and get a little bit of gal-pal time to gain some sanity before the school year begins and our lives go from relaxed summer days to busy and hectic weeks until January 2019. You are all amazing women and totally flamazing friends.

Lunch and snacks will be provided, all you need to bring is a project or two and your favorite sewing supplies.

Date: August 11, 2018
Time: 10:30am-6:30pm
Fee: $15 (please register with The Christmas Goose in shop or over the phone)

*Please contact Kirsty Michaelis with any questions.

 

Embrace the Chaos with Libs Elliott

EtC5

Using  only  paper  and  pencils  –  no  computers  required!

I  will  walk  students through  a  series  of  worksheet  exercises  that  mimic  the  programming  language I  use  to  generate  my  quilt  patterns.  By  using  controlled  elements  in  a  random  way, each  participant  will  end  up  with  a  unique  quilt  pattern  layout  –  no  two  Chaos  Quilts are  the  same! As  a  group,  we’ll  discuss  design  flow  and  tweak  our  individual  layouts.  Then  we’ll cut  fabrics  and  work  on  piecing  our  designs,  using  provided  block-building instructions.  At  the  end  of  the  class,  each  participant  will  leave    with  her/his  own random  geometric  quilt  design  and  will  have  the  knowledge  required  to  complete the  project  at  home.

1  Full-Day  Session  allows  time  for  drafting,  design  and  initial  block  construction.
Level:  All  Levels

Date: March 23rd, 2019
Time: 10:30-6
Location: TBA

CLASS SUPPLY LIST
*FABRIC
Using a series of worksheets and fun exercises (not the sweaty kind!), we’ll be drafting random quilt designs in class, then bringing them to life. The finished quilt tops will be 30”x30”. I suggest bringing a total of at least 2 yards of fabric (or 8-10 Fat Quarters), in a variety of 5 – 10 different prints/solids that you love and would like to see together in a quilt. Go as simple or wild as you like! For fabric inspiration, look up #rebelquilt and #embracethechaosquilt on Instagram as the quilts we’ll be drafting will be similar in style.

*ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES
• Pencil crayons or colored markers – we’ll use these to color our quilt designs • Pencil • Straight pins • Scissors • Rotary cutter • Thread • Cutting mat • Iron (if not supplied by venue) • 6”x24” or 6”x12” quilting ruler
