You will also learn how to work with the Easy Press Pen and Easy Press Solution to create flat seams which easily leads to improved accuracy.

Botanical Beauty Workshop by Sandra Sandvik

Date:  Friday May 24, 2019 and Saturday May 25, 2019

Location:  St. Agnes Church, 530 East 12th Street, N. Vancouver

This is based on a Pattern designed by Rhena Ferris and is used with her permission.  Sandra will teach free-form foundation piecing, working with colour (your choice of flowers for colour inspiration), mitred corners and narrow borders.  You will create a wall-hanging or table-runner with free form machine quilting and embellishing to finish your masterpiece.  As you can see this works beautifully with many fabrics, balis, colourful prints and solids.
