Fall 2015 Retreat at Elim Lodge
Tumbling Triangles with Leianne McCallum
Date: January 28, 2018 (NOTE DATE CHANGE)
Location: Rundle Park Hall, Oshawa
Cost: $40.00, plus pattern
By Combining two contrasting fabrics you will create triangles tumbling down the quilt. Using your V Block tool (or Tri-Rects tools), this quilt is fun and quick. Just jump right in and give it a whirl!
Note: Pattern required from your LQS or purchase on the day of the workshop
Quilted Rug with Albert Cote
Date: April 29, 2018
Location: Thornton Dundee Park Clubhouse, Oshawa
Cost: $70.00, no pattern required
In this VERY innovative and fun class, students will create a beautiful one of a kind quilted rug. Using at least three and up to five fabrics, plus batting and backing, we will layer the fabrics making a sandwich. Then Students will "doodle" a design on the top fabric and stitch their doodle through all layers. Once they have their design secured they will cut through to the desired colours underneath and begin to see their rug pattern and colors appear. Once all the cutting is complete they will echo quilt inside the cut design.
Throughout the weekend there are many demos for new techniques or projects, as well as a Masseuse available for a little light relaxation.
Our retreat starts on Friday at 9:30 am for 3 days, until 9:00 PM. Friday arrival after 9:30 am please!
