Penrose Triangle with Aitchbee – Friday 4th February 2022 (10am – 4pm)

Another Brand New 3D Workshop with Aitchbee (Helen Butcher). 

In Helen’s words:-

I have always loved 3D illusions and regularly find inspiration in the impossible figures of Bruno Ernst and MC Escher. In this class I will show you how to make this impossible triangle as a patchwork panel using my easy method of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP). Even if you have never tried FPP before, you can re-create this stunning visual image. The panel finishes to approximately 20 inches square – ideal for a small wall hanging or cushion front. Each student will receive a full set of instructions, with colour photographs, diagrams, so they can complete the panel at home. This is a machine sewing class, knowledge of rotary cutting is also useful but not essential.

Once enrolled the workshop fee is non-refundable unless we are able to sell your place.

The workshop is limited to 8 places.

Westalee Rulers 2 Day Sampler Course with Angela Attwood – Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th March 2022 (10am – 4pm)

 

Have you been on the Beginners Workshop with Angela?  If you have, you might like to do the follow on course which is a 2 Day Sampler.  The advantage of this course is Angela will teach you all about marking up and positioning your quilting with your new rulers, thus enabling you to work on your own quilts once you have completed the course.  The designs on the photo are all created using only one of the new rulers in Sampler Set 1, to give you some idea of their versatility.  You will need a Flat Extension Table for your Sewing Machine, Sampler Set 1 Rulers, plus the rulers you used on the Beginners course to do this workshop and possibly either the 8 Point Crosshair Ruler or the Rotation Bobs (Angela will have these to borrow, but you will have to wait and share with others on the course).  Once you have enrolled there will be a discount code for the rulers with The Cotton Patch which will give you 10% discount. 

Once enrolled the Workshop Fee is non-refundable unless we are able to sell your place.
