Six-TEAs asian tea webP1020992 P1030008 IMG_0482

Betsy and I designed and created these cute little art quilts last year in preparation for art quilt technique classes at Baron’s Sewing Center in Woodland Hills.

Now I am excited to announce that a series of Teapot workshops are scheduled in the Simi Valley at Quilty Pleasures starting this coming April.  Most of the construction of these adorable quilts is using fusibles and machine appliqué.  You will also learn how to apply fancy yarn fibers using couching techniques.  And it’s a chance to dig into your button box and gather up those bits of fancy lace and trim to embellish your creations.

There are 4 Wednesday sessions:  April 30, May 7, 14 and 28th – all 5:30 to 8:30 PM

Call Quilty Pleasures (805) 581-1577 today to sign up.  This will be a fun class.

 

The Garden Twist Quilt – a Classic Quilt Design!
