FREEZER PAPER FOUNDATION PAPER PIECING with Dianne

First of all, our friend and fellow guild member, DIANNE RITTER, will present a one-day workshop on foundation piecing. We are so excited about this simpler way to foundation paper-piece, and the end result will be a stunning table runner for you to enjoy and share (think Christmas gifts, think Quilt Show entry)!! Supply list will be available soon.   Here are the details:

Have you ever tried or wanted to try Foundation Paper Piecing because you love the accuracy of the technique but the thought of picking out all that paper made you run screaming?

What if there was a way to achieve the accuracy without all of the paper picking?

There is! Join me for a day of Foundation Paper Piecing using freezer paper and when your block is complete you simply pull the freezer paper off.  No tearing, pulling at stitches or picking required.

We will work on a table runner that, while not too difficult, will give you a good foundation in the technique.

Place: St. Agnes Church, 530 East 12th Street, North Vancouver, BC

Date:   Saturday, October 14, 2017

Time:  9:30 am to 4:00 pm

Cost:   $40.00

RULER CLASS with Carola

Next, we will present a workshop in November, with Carola – well known owner of Carola’s Quilt Shop in Gibsons, BC, and an amazing, artistic quilter.   You will hear from our Programs Committee that Carola will be a guest presenter at our guild meeting in October.   And as a follow up, she will teach a one-day RULER class in November.   There is great excitement in the quilting world about this fun and fascinating method of machine quilting, and so we ask you to stay tuned for all the details on this workshop in our next newsletter and at the June meeting.

Happy quilting,

Susan Lum and Helen Jorgensen.
