SWEATSHIRT JACKET LECTURE & CLASS INFO
On Monday Jan. 23, 10;00 to 12 noon, there will be a free lecture with many samples, showing design options you may choose and a demonstration of how to cut the sweatshirt and start sewing, so you can have your own custom jacket, and comfortably work at home. Although this is free, you MUST sign up, as there will be a limit to the number of seats available. At the lecture/demo, you will have an opportunity to make a donation to the Food Bank. No supplies needed for the lecture! Following a quick lunch break there will be a special hands-on session for those who want to bring all their supplies. Please bring your bag lunch and drink. SUPPLY LIST in OCT. Gazette, also see FABRICS below. The next week, on Monday the 30th, those who are working on a jacket (whether you attended the hands-on or just went home and started on your own) will have a follow-up session at no charge. Bring your jacket for advice, assistance, and encouragement! FABRICS SUGGESTIONS: you will make a custom shirt so there is no definite amount of fabric! As always, cottons of any kind will be the easiest to sew as you get started. These jackets will be patchwork style, so you don’t need to have lots yardage...strips, fat quarters, scraps will be fine. Choose colors & prints that go together. A panel is too big, but you might have some large motifs that would look great as accents! We will be CREATING and having fun!
Linda Hahn will be teaching her one pin paper piecing in a wall hanging class, it is an all day class. The pattern can only be obtained through taking her class. Linda is a very funny sought after teacher. This year she has taught at Daytona AQS, Paducah AQS, and has 4 classes scheduled in Houston. In between these large shows she has taught all over the country for quilt shows and guilds. We were lucky to lock her in at the beginning of 2022. This class is scheduled for February 27th and the fee is $50. She will only take 20 students. The fees for her classes in Houston are $122.00 to 130.00. Your guild is offering you a great fun bargain. Sign up is open to the first 20 members and then we will start a waiting list
