Classes

The Guild subsidises courses for members throughout the year.  These classes are mostly held on a Saturday from 9.30am.  There is often preparation needed prior to the class so be sure to check that you are ready for the day.  Classes cost $15 for members.  If numbers permit, non members can apply to attend for $40.  To ensure a place register early by emailing kcqclasses@gmail.com or phone/text Jill 021344253 or Wendy 0274679347.  Following courses, photos of the day will be posted further down the page so please scroll down to see our members busy at work.

Beginner Quilting Classes
This very successful class has now completed for 2018 but will run again in 2019.  Wendy plans to run a continuing private course but you would need to contact Wendy direct for further information.

Next Classes:
6th October - Do your own simple walking foot quilting
 
 
  
Have you always wanted to be able to quilt your own work, but never really known how to use your walking foot? This is the class for you . By the end of the day you will be able to do : stitch in the ditch, shadowing, matchstick quilting, free hand stars, circles and a few more fun techniques.
This is NOT a free motion quilting class. You will need a Walking foot for your machine, or a machine with an integrated feed.
Class is on October 6 from 10 am to 4 pm, bring your lunch.
Cost is $15.
A needs list will be sent when you register. There is some preparation of some simple 9 patches required before the class.
Tutor is Wendy Hatley who says” I’ve run this class many times in Australia and I’ve never had anyone who couldn’t turn out beautifully quilted work straight away. “

Accidental Landscapes **Pattern fee of $15 included in the cost of this workshop - total $30
This is another class by Karen Eckmeier which Dianne has permission to teach.

Karen’s easy technique of layered topstitching means you can create wonderful landscape scenes very quickly and easily. The pieces can be from 4” x 6” up to 20” x 20”.  Almost everyone should complete their quilt top and be quilting it by the end of the class. A variety of landscapes can be chosen from Karen’s patterns (a requirement for teaching is that students purchase a pattern.)  Dianne will need your choice of pattern by the beginning of November so these can be ordered in.

Dianne is happy to teach several different landscapes in one class so students can all try something different – Farms & Fields, Meadows & Mountains, Beaches, Lakes, Coastlines, & Ski Slopes. Dianne will have samples of each to display in class.
