Quilt making workshops
Posted on: November 28, 2014
The run-away success of our craft party workshops in 2014 has been the quiltmaking for bride, new born or birthday girl. Each guest has the chance to personalise as many squares as time and their creativity allows which the Menders spirit away to make up into a beautiful memory quilt to keep for ever. If a wedding is on the horizon we do our very best to have everything ready and waiting for them on the ‘big day’.
At our fully tutored workshops we make sure there’s plenty of support and advice for those who haven’t sewn much more than a missing button. It’s sometimes a surprise to find out that only the simplest of technique is necessary to really up the wow-factor. Applique, or the art of applied decoration, is a really effective way of decorating and embellishing your creation. Some of our best quilts have been where people’s memories and shared experiences are represented by some outstanding applique squares.
We’ve even made it double easy with a quick guide to the most popular applique techniques on our How To pages on the website with simple step instructions for blanket and running stitch. Once you’ve got these down you won’t be at all nervous and can really flash the sewing diva creds at your next craft party event!!
