Kathleen Riggins Workshop presented by the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild

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!

You might know Kathleen’s work through her Instagram moniker Kathleen Quilts. Kathleen is coming to Australia to teach at AMQF and after finishing in Adelaide, she is heading to Sydney to teach for us.

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
Cost per day for SMQG non-members: $250

Monday meetup – Favourite quilting tools or gadgets

Sydney Modern Quilt Guild has two meetings per month.

A full day of sewing happens on our Sewing Sundays from 10am-4pm, but what goes on at Monday MeetUp you ask?

We meet at the same club, Dooleys Waterview Club and have a table booked from 7pm. There is the opportunity to have dinner, or just cake and coffee or tea, as people make their way in for a 7.30 start. There is always plenty of conversation, laughter and handsewing.

Generally there is a topic for discussion. You can sit and listen, or jump in with your own tidbits. The March Monday MeetUp topic was your “Favourite quilting tools or gadgets”.

There were many ideas that were shared including some novel uses for objects unrelated to the usual quilting notions.

This ingenious little device was shown to us by Jodi – a first time visitor. It’s a “snippit” a gadget from Canada for opening plastic milk pouches. The cleverly concealed blade is perfect for snipping threads and can safely be taken on flights. It’s also magnetic…which means it’s a needle holder too!

Our next Monday MeetUp is on 24 April from 7pm at Dooley Waterview Club Silverwater Road Silverwater.

Contact details are on our Facebook page, instagram or by email from our blog.

We look forward to seeing our regulars and new comers in the coming months.
