The aims and objectives for workshops are to stimulate an appreciation of the art of quilting; to encourage fellowship; and to share, learn, teach and promote old and new ideas, techniques, designs as well as information regarding quilting. They also encourage participation in our Comfort Quilts and Preemie charitable endeavours. Our committee aims to reach all levels of quilters, from beginner to advanced, and to make the workshops affordable to all members of the guild.
27 October 2023 ( 9:00-3:30 )
Beginning Quilt- Making instructed by our very own guild member Yvette Chilcott.
She will be showing us how to make a 2-block 42”x54” quilt top - this will include all the basics from fabric, thread and needles, rotary cutting, organizing pieces, 1/4” seam, pressing, ‘strip piecing” (9 Patch) and half square triangles (Shoo Fly) along with borders.
Wouldn’t it be fun to walk away with a finished quilt top while having fun with others?
This class is geared towards beginners and those who just want to refresh their skills.
Class cost is $30.00 and will be held at Brighton Community Centre.
A supply list will be provided upon sign up.
Bring your mug, a lunch and a cushion and be ready for a fun filled day.
