On Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23, please join Sharon Blackmore of Love Shack Quilts as she teaches us all to "Dream Big". Yes, the Dream Big craze is still going, and here is your chance to learn how to quilt your Dream Big panel.
Saturday, June 22 (part one): Learn elegant feathers with variations, delicate pebbles and pearls, and dainty swirls with variations. This is a drawing day where you learn the fundamentals of these 3 design elements, how they work together, how you can jazz them up or just keep them simple, and how you can fill unusual spaces (just like the Dream Big petals!) with them. You will also learn some tricks to get more dimension in your quilts. You have the option of taking Part 1 of this workshop only, if you wish and all skill levels are welcome.
Sunday, June 23 (part two): Let’s apply all that we have learned in Part 1 and start quilting the Dream Big Panel! Sharon will show you how to plan, mark and quilt your Dream Big panel, and how to move from one section to the next with minimum travelling. Students should already be comfortable with some free motion quilting, be familiar with their sewing machine’s functions, and come to class with their Dream Big panel fully basted and ready for quilting.
As you know, Pinheads has a small"ish" classroom, so the first six people registering with full payment of $150 will be confirmed. Anyone thereafter will be waitlisted, and if the demand warrants, we may rent a conference centre for the training. Class requirements will be distributed upon payment.
