Workshop January 22 and January 23, 2022

 Here is all the information for our exciting Zoom workshop with Jenny of Papper Sax Sten.

Dates:  January 22 + 23, 2022
Time:  10 am - 1 pm EST

Cost for Members is $85 and Non-Members is $95.  See Paypal button below to sign up.

Thistles, Cogs and Caterpillar Wheels with Jenny Haynes

This is a two-day online course consisting of a three-hour group session via Zoom on both days.

Learning objectives:

In this class I will show you how to make the block I created for my Modern Times Quilt- it’s the classic New York Beauty block but with a twist.

You will learn how the different variations of the block are designed and put together, the way the different parts can be shifted and moved to change the look of the block.

We will sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in three sizes whilst playing with my Drunkard's Path Templates*, a tool that makes precise blocks that are easy to piece together.

We will also cover all the stages of Foundation Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper- how to prep the paper, what stitch length to use, how best to put the block together and more.

The techniques learnt will give you knowledge and freedom to design your own quilt of Cogs or Thistles or maybe even Caterpillar Wheels. This is a techniques class and we will not be following a pattern. Off-piste sewing is highly encouraged. 

The session is suitable for newbie quilters and extreme quilters alike.


The class will take place at 10am-1pm on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of January. Both days will consist of one and a half hour demos by me followed by solo sewing and questions by you.
