Quilt As You Go Class

If you have ever wanted to try Quilt As You Go we can highly recommend the Sea Spray Quilt pattern by the incredibly talented Monica Poole.  Our ladies have had a ball making their very own quilts over 2 classes.


Tina has made her quilt graduating the values of grey and navy fabric.


Barb is making a blue and white quilt for her mother.


Sharon is making her quilt in Batik fabrics.


Donna is using up some of her blue fabrics.


Dominque is making a quilt for her husband in blacks, greys and oranges.


Juanita is making her nephew a quilt for his birthday.







Here are the results from the two classes with just a little more work to do, our ladies will have their very own quilts in single and queen size.

Crochet with Jenny King


Our crochet classes with Jenny King have been so popular that we now have them twice a week.  They are scheduled for the first and third Wednesday of the month from 1.00 to 4.00 and are for all levels of crochet skill.


We also have some of Jenny's wonderful yarn in stock.



 Stonewash comes in large 100gm balls containing 280metres of cotton rich yarn. This 60%cotton/40% acrylic blend yarn gives you the best of both worlds. It will work well for any #3 pattern or 8 ply here in Australia. It is a tube knit yarn so there is no splitting and this gives it a wonderful earthy texture. Stonewash, as the name implies , means for everyday casual garments or relaxed comforting home wares. It is perfect for baby wear as it is sooooooo soft.



 

Jenny King Designs Embellish yarn is silky and has a knitted tube construction to make it unique. No need to worry about the Z or S twist. This is a great yarn for those people who cannot wear animal fibres but still want luxury in their garments. It feels really soft on the skin with a sheen that looks as sumptuous as silk without the weight or expense. Embellish is great for Jenny King Designs Get Squared garments and makes up quickly. Designed in Australia.



Jenny King Designs Fantasy yarn 100meters per 50gm ball. 60 % cotton and 40% polyester. It is great for summer clothing, throws, wraps and assorted homewares. It is also great for fringing.


If have ever wanted to learn crochet or just want to join a crochet group then check out our class list  here for future class dates and times.
