We are delighted to announce that legendary Canadian free motion quilter, Kathleen Riggins, is coming to Sydney to teach for the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild!

The dates are Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September, 2018 and the venue is Dooley’s Waterview at Silverwater Rd & Clyde St, Silverwater NSW 2128.
Saturday 29/9 :: Easy Quilting, Stunning Quilts
Use a straight ruler and easy fills to create stunning modern quilting designs. Use the piecing in the quilt to find hidden shapes and lines, then simply fill them in for fantastic quilting! In this class you will use a cheater panel to practice the techniques we learn.
Full day. 10 am – 4 pm
Cost of cheater panel is an extra cost of approximately A$26 payable on the day.
Sunday 30/9 :: Quilting For The Crazy/Combining Designs In Modern Ways
Sometimes spending that little bit of extra time on a quilt can really make it special. Mark lines & shapes to create stunning negative spaces may be time consuming, but it’s not particularly difficult. Knowing some basic designs is one thing, but knowing how to combine them in interesting ways can open a whole new world of quilting – without having to learn new designs! Join Kathleen as she walks you through some of her favourite ways to combine designs, helping you create stunning quilts.
Full day. 10am – 4pm
You may enrol for both days, if you wish. The material covered will not overlap.
Cost includes workshop only. Lunch, coffees and snacks may be purchased in the club dining room.
Cost per day for members: $175
