HAND QUILTING WORKSHOP
Learn a traditional technique used for centuries! This workshop covers the basics of hand quilting, where one joins two or more layers of cloth using multiple rows of stitching to create a textural and insulating affect.
There is the option to take the workshop as a series and add the basic patchwork workshop where you will learn how to make a patchwork to hand quilt. Patchwork and quilting are often combined. The patchwork is made first and is then layered with padding and other fabric layers, all of which are stitched together (“quilted”) with small stitches in decorative patterns.
