Canberra Quilters will be running the following workshops during 2017:-

July 26th Quilt like an Egyptian – with the Tentmakers of Cairo.

Cost $90.

Tentmaker work is brilliantly coloured appliqué, with intricate and beautiful designs. Some are designed on paper-fold principles, others derived from Mosque floors or door decorations, or from wall panels in Pharaonic tombs. Some are based on Koranic calligraphy.

Sept. 30th – Introduction to Patchwork and Quilting

A day for the beginner! If you have always wanted to learn what patchwork is all about, this is the day for you.

October 7th – Westalee Ruler Skillshare/workshop

Cost $30.

Our first Ruler workshop was booked out and we had a few disappointed people. Luckily Dorothy has agreed to come back and run another one for us but be quick, the waiting list has already used up half the spaces!

Oct. (Sunday) 22nd – Stable bag – with Christine Barnicoat.

A great little bag with a big opening- perfect for taking your stash or project to your friendship group. – cost $15 or $30 including the pattern.

Nov. 4th – Chatelaine workshop with Jenny Bowker

Cost $90.

The Chatelaine was a form of jewellery worn by the lady of the castle, from which the keys of the castle were suspended. Jenny has adapted this to a new form of adornment from which you will ‘hang’ all you sewing supplies. So join us in making a beautiful (and very useful) item either to keep in your own castle or to become a Christmas gift to a fellow quilter.

We will also be running workshops throughout the year for beginners or people who would like to find out a bit more about patchwork and quilting.
