Beyond the Ditch – Adventurous Quilting with a Walking Foot - Tuesday 9th Aug from 10:00 to 16:00

Why is quilting your project so difficult? You know what it is like, you follow the instructions to create the quilt top and you reckon you have it all nailed. Then there is that phrase that strikes dread into our hearts ............ Quilt as Desired - What does that actually mean? How are you supposed to know what it is that you desire? Free motion quilting - that's what they mean, right? STOP RIGHT THERE! This workshop will give you opportunity to look at lots of different designs that you can achieve with quilting using your walking foot and send you away with the confidence to go “Beyond the Ditch ……!” (For those with some initial experience) Bring a packed lunch.

Well, this day is for you! Bring those projects and receive the support of an experienced quiltmaker and teacher to help you make progress.
