Liewe mede kwilters

Dis so lekker om die eerste boslelies en azaleas te sien blom, en as ek die jasmyn ruik by die agterdeur, dan weet ek die lente is verseker hier… Ons het besluit om terug te gaan na die begin, en ons nuwer kwilters te bemagtig, sowel as die ouer hande wat glo hulle ‘kan dit nie doen nie’ uit te daag. So, volgende jaar is daar een vol dag klas om vrye beweging (free motion) kwiltwerk op jou gewone naaimasjien te leer doen (meeste masjiene kan dit inderdaad doen, selfs die oueres), en later in die jaar leer ons die fyner kuns van handkwiltwerk. Ons sal nog op die metode besluit, en dalk is daar tyd om ‘n paar ekstra handkwiltsteke of handapplieksteke te leer. So, kry solank ‘n stopvoetjie (darning foot) of vrye beweging voetjie vir jou masjien, en laat ons jou help om jou kwilthorisonne te verbreed volgende jaar! Sien nadere besonderhede van die kursusse in die tabel hieronder. Tot dan, kwilt jou sorge weg 

Dear fellow quilters

It is so nice to see the first clivias and azaleas flower, and then when I can smell the jasmine at my back door, I know spring has certainly arrived…We have decided to go back to basics, and empower our newer quilters, and possibly challenge some older hands who believe they ‘cannot do this’. So, there will be one full day course to learn how to do free motion quilting on your domestic sewing machine (most domestic machines can actually do this, even the older ones), and later in the year we shall learn the fine art of hand quilting, the specific method still to be decided, and possibly a few additional hand quilting or hand applique stitches. So, stock up on a darning foot or free motion foot for your machine so long, and let us help you widen your quilting horizons next year! See details of the courses in the table below.

Until then, keep calm and quilt 
