Flamazing Friends All Day Sew (at the Christmas Goose)
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
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
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
CLASS SUPPLY LIST
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.
• 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
