Yesterday was our 3rd and final Aprons Workshop of 2019.



Once again, most of the ladies were making the Cross Back (Japanese) Apron (free pattern available here).


Aprons (3) Workshop


This is a brilliant pattern with beautifully finished french seams on the inside.

Just look at these gorgeous examples!

And one of my lovely ladies was making my Tie Back Apron (pattern available here).

Doesn’t she look wonderful (and the apron’s not bad either!).


I adore the fabrics Anja has used, combining Essex Yarn Dyed Linen (Denim) with some pretty geometric flowers.


I hope you all enjoy your aprons ladies, and being the dometic goddesses I know you are!


Happy sewing!

Last Saturday I ran the first of 3 Apron workshops!


Nine ladies stitched their little hearts out on either my Tie Back Apron pattern or the Japanese Cross Back Apron.

Saturday Workshops 2019

In classes this week I presented my 2019 (January-April) Saturday workshops.

They got a wonderful response, and I’m happy to share them with you here.


2019 Sat workshops jan-apr


So let me tell you a little more about what you can expect in each workshop:


FMQ Workshop


I’ve scheduled again my most popular workshop – Free Motion Quilting and Sketching.


In this workshop you get lots of practice time to learn at least 6 ‘beginner friendly’ free motion designs, fillers and how to quilt a cot size quilt.


The 2nd half of the day is all about Free Motion Sketching, where you can relax a little and have fun with this raw edge applique and writing technique.



Harriet cushion workshop


My cute friend ‘Harriet Hare’ (from my Woodland Friends quilt) makes her appearance in tweed!


Tweed is a favourite textile among many sewers, and mixed with pretty cottons and satin stitch applique, you have one gorgeous cushion!


(The pattern for Harriet Hare Cushion will be released after the workshop.)


Apron workshop


At our Apron workshop in March there will be 2 styles to choose from – the Japanese style ‘Cross-over’ apron and my ‘Apron in Jar’, a practical and stylish apron which folds into a decorated mason jar for gifting.



The pattern for the Apron in a Jar includes a child’s size template and will be released after the workshop.


Folksy Tea Cosy Workshop


We wrap up our first term of ‘Sewing Saturdays’ with some folksy tea cosies.


Bring your teapot along to this workshop, and we will have fun appliqueing a ‘made to measure’ cosy for your pot.


I will be posting more information about each workshop nearer the time.


Places are limited, so book early (waiting lists available if fully booked). Just drop me an email at justjudedesigns@hotmail.co.uk


Happy sewing!
