Classes For 2017

1 Dec

Hi Everyone

We have already been asked what classes we shall be having next year, so here is a list of what we are hoping to have

Bag Class x 3  this means we are hoping to have a bag class every 3-4 months

English Paper Piecing Class  I can hear the groans from here, ‘we can do this already so why a class’ well this class is different, you will not only learn the basics of English Paper Piecing using the ever popular hexagons, but we shall also incorporate 1/2 Hexagons & also the Lucy Boston style paper piecing too, for good measure we shall also cover some ideas on colour selection too

Tuffett Class, these projects are very popular in USA so we have sourced all the hardware you require for this class including custom turned legs for your tuffett, this class will be over 2 days & I can guarantee great fun! More details to come

Kaleidoscope Class, this class will be great using the lovely oriental fabrics we have on order & also for learning this very popular technique

The Redwork Class we held last year was amazing, so this year we shall be incorporating Redwork into a quilt

Crazy Patchwork always popular & a great way to learn this very old technique you will not only learn to stitch this block but also ways to embellish it too

Assorted Stars Class how many times are we put off making a quilt top because it has those wretched stars in it, this class is the answer to allay your fears, this will be held over 3 months with just 2 hourly lessons, where you will learn how to pick the straight of grain of your fabric along with hints for bias edges plus lots more, the finished product will be a table runner using the various techniques you have learned

The Baltimore & All Things Applique Class will return this year too, always popular & there will also be other classes slotted in at various times too including a Christmas project & Applique project too

Keep all these classes in mind, it is hoped there will be class samples on display at the Stonestead Outdoor Qulit Festival on 12th February 2017
Challenge Packs are now available at Sawmillers

Before we close we want you see how very popular the Aurifil thread is here at Sawmillers, it seems not only do our customers love it but also Scamp the latest Official Greeter !!!!

And finally we wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year & look forward to seeing you in 2017, our holiday hours are on the front page of the website along with the Tea House hours too
