Bethanne Nemesh NEW CLASS



We are very excited that Bethanne Nemesh has made a very special offer to share a NEW CLASS with us. As it is a long time since submitting classes, we are aware that Bethanne has since written two more books, filmed online classes & has now developed new classes with new content.

She has offered to update one of her drawing classes with new content. All existing students have been contacted & are very excited with this news! There are still seats available in this classroom, so book soon to learn the latest from Bethanne...

Title: Feather Faster!

Love feathers? Yes! Frustrated by how time consuming they can be with lots of marking, planning, or rolling a quilt? Learn to feather faster. In this drawing and lecture class, Bethanne will teach you her unmarked, spineless, no-backtrack approach to one pass feathering, perfect for a mid-custom quilt.
Learn ten feather shapes that look amazing no matter how high contrast the quilting! Speed up your feathering without giving up that feathered look. Based on Bethanne’s new book, From Fast To Fancy: Feathers for Freehand Quilters, this class focuses on the type of feathers that partner perfectly with the concepts in the Sampler Quilt Smackdown design class!
Kit includes all handouts, black fusible birds and wall hanging quilt pattern for creating class sample on your own.

2hr class for $66 (no change in price)

Bethanne offered this to us so we can make the most of hosting her here in Adelaide with the best classes we can have!

STOP PRESS!! There has been a cancellation in the highly popular Nemeshing: A Freehand feather flourish hands on Domestic Machine class on Friday morning. Seat is available online now!
*********************************

Leanne Harvey has been busy preparing to present her two classes next month! Some more jaw dropping sample images have been provided to inspire you.

Get on My Quilt - Getting your custom designs onto your quilt top can sometimes be very stressful for freehand quilters. In this class Leanne will show you different tools and techniques to get your custom designs onto your quilt top while loaded on your frame. There will be discussion on Marking Tools, Handmade Templates and Design Inspiration. It's loads of fun and the only limit is your imagination......

 


 

Quilt it Quickly!... Taking Quilt As You Go to the next level !!! In this class Leanne will show you techniques to piece and quilt as you go on the longarm !!! It's heaps of fun and you get a finished quilt quickly. Use up all your scraps, orphan blocks and your stash.............even the binding will be stitched on !!!!!










******************************

Do you have a thread stash?? I certainly do... almost embarrassing, but I would not give any of them up. I do love having so many choices at my fingertips when I want to quilt. 

It is going to be VERY tempting in our Vendor Mall this year with FOUR thread companies showing all their different ranges, styles & colours of glorious threads.


We welcome the following vendors...
Always Thread (Aurifil) 
Busy Quilting (Glide thread)
Tajima (Madeira Thread)
Wonderfil Specialty Threads
