This process focussed workshop will teach you the fundamentals of hand-quilting so that you have all the skills needed to make your own. Participants will create a small stitched panel and will learn how to hand quilt as well as choose appropriate textiles, wadding and threads, rotary cutting, basting methods, and will be shown how to finish their pieces with binding.
You will also learn about the nature and intricacies of whole cloth quilting, trapunto, and about the history of quilted objects.
Fabric, cotton sashiko thread, thimbles, and needles will be provided. No experience necessary.
