We currently have Leesa Chandlers quilt "Geisha in the Moonlight" in the store. This is a workshop that Leesa will be teaching for us during our retreat: Quilting in the Highlands 28th July till 31st July.
This is a stunning quilt that Leesa has designed featuring needleturn applique and several other hand sewing methods.
On the first day we work on the border blocks first to learn needleturn, 3D work, paper piecing, bias making, stem stump work and cherry blossoms. On the second day we review what was covered on day one and then work on the Geisha. All techniques are demonstrated, keeping in mind that the Geisha is all needleturn and 3D/bagged out work, so much simpler than Day 1! General techniques are also covered such as transferring patterns onto background, quilt as you go techniques to assemble the quilt and all that cool stuff you don't get in the pattern.
Quilting in the Highlands is a fantastic quilting retreat that we will be holding Saturday 28th July till Tuesday 31st July. There are 10 different classes that you can book into. Our teachers for this retreat including Carol Doak, Melinda Bula, Sue Dennis and Michele Hill. You can book for just 1 of the 2 day classes or stay for all 4 days. These classes are designed for all skill levels.
