Learn to Quilt with Ruby Hoppen
Class two: Hand Quilting and Binding
Date: Sunday 22nd April 3:30-6:30pm
Location: 27-29 Johnston St, Collingwood VIC 3066
Imbue your quilt with meaning, learn the meditative practise of hand quilting and tying, and learn how to finish your quilt with binding. In this 3 hour class, you will learn the basics of how to baste, quilt, bind and sign your quilt top. For beginner to intermediate sewers, experience in hand sewing is a must- however the techniques we will cover are not too complicated or scary. Feel free to bring along special thread, wool, sequins or buttons. Wool and quilting cotton thread will be provided.
What we will cover-
This is an introduction to hand quilting, tying and binding. I will show you different techniques and some secrets I have learned in my 10+ years as a quilt maker. You will also learn how to bind and sign your quilts to create a sense of significance and meaning in your work.
What you will come away with-
A started sampler quilt and an illustrated instructional booklet on everything I teach in the class (including some of my quilt making secrets)
There will be wine, tea and snacks
