I am excitedly counting down the days until the Quilt NSW exhibition next month! This was such a wonderful event to be a part of last year, and I can’t wait to return in the coming weeks to meet so many patchwork enthusiasts, catch up with my fellow stall holders and be inspired by all of the quilts on display in the Sydney Quilt Show.
I am so honored to have been invited by the NSW Quilt Guild to run a workshop at this years exhibition! I’m running a three hour class Saturday Morning where you can stitch up your own Hexie Heart wall hanging. In this class I will take you through creating a Hexie Heart, one of my signature English Paper Pieced designs. A perfect class for beginners and stitchers already familiar with English Paper Piecing, I will share my tips and best practices for this wonderful slow stitching craft. Enjoy a peaceful morning of slow stitching with me as you stitch together your own Hexie heart using ½” hexagons in pretty fabrics. You’ll then be able to hand applique your heart onto backing fabric before framing it in an embroidery hoop to take home and hang on your wall. Cost: Non Member $60, Guild Member $54Kit Cost $40 – Kit includes: embroidery hoop, needles and threads, Sewline Glue Pen, pack of ½” hexagon paper templates, backing fabric, mini scrap fabric pack, applique adhesive and printed pattern.
