Upcoming Workshops

Free Motion Quilting with Rulers with Carola Russell from Sechelt, BC
Place:    St. Agnes Church, 530 East 12th Street, North Vancouver, BC
Date:     Saturday November 25, 2017
Time:    9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (1/2 hour for lunch)
Cost:     $60.00

Come join us for a day of “Free Motion Quilting with Rulers” on your own domestic sewing machine. Carola will discuss everything you’ll need to know to get started on your machine. You will add ruler work to your repertoire! Rulers are a great way to perfect “in the ditch” quilting, navigate around corners, channel quilting and make consistent shapes such as curves and circles. Do not be intimidated by the description, this class is FUN for novices!

You will need to purchase a “Ruler Foot” and “Ruler” or “Ruler set” before the class, if you do not already have them. Feet, shanks and rulers can be ordered from Carola before the hands-on class. You will receive a 15% discount on all regular priced supplies purchased from Carola.

Carola is also coming to lecture on this technique at our October guild meeting, organized by the Programs Committee. Orders from already-registered participants in this workshop for the feet, shanks and rulers required, have been placed with Carola.

For late registrations, please check with Carola at the October guild meeting for all your requirements, if you don’t already have them.

January Extravaganza 2018

We are working on our annual January Extravaganza 2018 and the exact date, location and sign-up sheets will be available for our October and November meetings.

This absolutely fun, no-pressure day will follow the same format as previous years. We will provide a theme or quilt project that you can participate in, or you may wish to work on community quilts or your own project. We will have a sign-up sheet for either a savoury or sweet contribution to our potluck lunch, and hopefully lots of rewards or prizes! So make sure to check us out at the Workshop table at Guild!

Plans are also underway to have two more workshops in March and May of 2018 and these will be announced soon.

Happy quilting,
Susan Lum and Helen Jorgensen
Workshop Coordinators
