The Process of...............

This is a shout out to local quilter's in the Bellingham, WA area.  There has been a last minute opening in my 6 month workshop called, The Process Of...............

This came about after meeting with quilter's for 12 months during our What Not's Demo Days.  Some of the members wanted to continue to meet and learn or brush up on techniques.  These workshops will run the first Sat of the month for 6 months, and it's very affordable.  Only $15 per month with a 6 month commitment.

During the first month we will be discussing and learning the process of drafting out blocks, changing their size, drafting out your own quilt pattern and learning how to make templates from these drawings.  Before we wrap up the  2 hour class, the members will put out their wants, needs, and goals of the workshop.  Those ideas will be the building blocks of the future meetings.

I am a process teacher, I want you to learn how to make good blocks, so your quilt will be flat, straight, and square (or rectangle *vbg*).  The blocks you create in the workshop will all be your own choice, and at the end you will have some great pieces to put into your own original quilt or use as samples for future projects.  I've done this workshop before with a commercial pattern and the feedback from quilter's was wonderful.  One student emailed and told me she has never had her blocks go together so well as those from our workshop.  Yeah to that !!!

OK, if you are local, come on, join in the fun.  We will meet 1st Sat of the month, starting in October.  Class is 10:30 - 12:30 at Fabric Etc. in Bellingham , WA.   Click the link and give Carol a shout if you are interested in this great class.
