New classes on offer!

We are thrilled to be able to offer two extra classes from Renae Haddadin to fully take advantage of her inspirational ideas & tools. It has been suggested that some of us may have already purchased Renae’s Mini Ray, but not really learnt how to use it to the best advantage? There are so many ways to use this tool in both designing piecing patterns to create unique & delightful creations and also for designing quilting patterns - that I’m sure this will be a popular class.

#285 Renae Haddadin - Circular Patterns

Sunday 30th September, 2012  11-1pm

Learn to use Renae’s MiniRay to draft both quilting patterns and patchwork patterns. Renae will demonstrate how the tool works and how to use it in many ways. We will draft stars, flying geese, serpentine feathers and more. If you like centre medallion quilts you will love the ideas this class will give you! This class is a 2 hour demonstration with the MiniRay. Circular Patterns

Handout fee of $5- is included in registration fee.

Cost: $65-

Next is a class that many should probably do?? I would be reasonably confident that I could challenge you all with my huge stash of stencils & then admit that I haven’t really used all that many of them (but I just had to have them!!!)

#284 Renae Haddadin - Working with Stencils

Sunday 30th September, 2012  6.30-8.30pm

Are you frustrated when stencils are beautiful but don’t fit in the area you want to use them? Do you wish all your stencils were continuous line? Learn simple tricks to modify any stencil for use with a longarm quilting machine. Renae will demonstrate ways to use them in borders so that they work out perfectly. You will love using stencils after learning just a few helpful tricks. This class is a 2 hour demonstration on a longarm machine. Working with stencils

2hr demo/lecture

Handout fee of $5- included

Cost: $65-

With only 37 days until Festival commences we are confident that EVERYONE is going to have an amazing time of seeing new gadgets, making new friends and learning so much from our very talented pool of teachers. Don’t delay in booking your classes as there are quite a few with very limited numbers left in them.

Congratulations to those teachers who have filled their classes!

Stay tuned for more teacher reviews and also we will be commencing our vendor reviews this week so that you will all be aware of some special NEW releases & products that they will have available in their booths at Festival just for us! This is SOOOO exciting!

Until next time

Tracey & Sharon
