UFO classes

If you want to learn, we can show you how... in our UFO sessions.

Due to popular demand Lorraine's UFO sessions are now every Friday morning 10am-12:30pm and alternate Friday evenings 7pm-9pm (bookings essential). Sue is learning to free-motion quilt. We put the quilt top together in UFO class, pin-basted the quilt on another day and now Sue is quilting leaves onto the quilt top.

The Matilda's Own gloves have little grippers. This relieves your shoulders and wrists as you don't need to press down very hard to move the quilt. Sue is using an extension table with her machine - I think it's an absolute must if you are free-motion quilting large articles.

This is Dorothy. She just learnt to machine blanket-stitch during UFO class.

This will be part of a baby quilt. We have fused on some flower fairy cutouts to use broderie perse applique.

The white areas will be machine blanket-stitched on. The parts of the fairies overlapping the purple writing will be hand-stitched.
The fairies really jazz up the centre of the baby quilt.
Would you like to join our UFO sessions? Just phone or drop into the shop to secure your place. If you want to learn, we can show you how.
