Have you tried machine quilting but can’t conquer it? The good news is that anyone can do it.

In this class you will learn Pauline’s Back to Back QAYG technique (the easiest of her two techniques) to make a lovely table runner. Discover how quilting one block at a time is remarkably simple.
Once finished, you’ll be able to apply the technique to almost any quilt you make, no matter the size.

Have you heard of the HoneyBun but not quite sure what it is?
This is a fun class that reveals it all. A great option if you want to use up fabrics from your stash and create a colourful talking point in your home. Using the HoneyBun Sasher Tool, you’ll learn how to make a HoneyBun Bowl.
Bowls, baskets or bags can be made in any size once you have a better understanding of how to manipulate the fabric strips as they are sewn.
