I’m super excited to let you know about my latest teaching project:
This is the Kindred Spirits Sampler Quilt and I will be teaching this as a weekly quilt-along, starting 14th September through to end January ’21.
Each week there will be a new block to make and a new technique focus (some blocks have 2 weeks allocated).
This was a project I already had in mind for my actual classes at Conway Mill. But as I’m not back to running my classes yet (thanks to Coronavirus!) I thought I would go ahead and teach it online! And that means anyone can join in!
This quilt-along is all about building skills, building confidence and building community. Here are a few more thoughts on what this quilt-along represents:
So what do you get?
All the teaching will come in the form of
- pre-recorded videos emailed each week into your inbox. These videos will include accurately cuttin fabric and using templates. The videos mean you have complete control -press pause, replay and sew at your own pace
- PDF documents (colouring sheets & cutting instructions)
- Professionally art-worked templates (as needed)
and you will be supported every step of the way through our interactive social media groups where you can ask questions, share tips and ideas, access bonus features, make new friends and create community!
And here are a few other colourways you could consider:
The full list of materials and equipment needed is available here, as well as the schedule of our block making throughout the 4 months.
And finally, by taking part in this Quilt-Along, you will also be supporting a charity close to my heart.
£5 from every registration will be donated to Shared Threads, who make reuseable sanitary pads and hygiene packs for women and girls who are struggling with period poverty at home and abroad.
Here’s Kirsty to tell you more:
If you’d like more information about the work of Shared Threads or how you can get involved, check out their website here.
And so the countdown begins!
I do hope you will consider joining us for an Autumn term of fun, learning and connecting!
