At Every Guilder Goodies Morning
You are welcome to come to a G.G. morning and work on your own project. There is space for you to sew, or to pin a quilt. We open everything up just before 9. Please bring your supplies, a sewing machine if you are machine-sewing, and your lunch.
March 10 at 9:00 am -- Carol Ewles - Reversible Binding
Reverse binding on a quilt means that the binding on the back matches the fabric on the back and the binding on the front matches the fabric on the front. The binding is completely done by machine (no hand sewing). Carol expects the demo to take 15 to 20 minutes.
For the demo on Reverse Binding, please bring the following supplies:
An item that needs binding. The back should be in a different fabric than the front. A Potholder or Table Topper would be ideal. The key thing is that the back should be a different fabric than the front.
Enough matching fabric from both the front and back to bind your item.
Cutting mat, rotary cutter, sewing machine, thread, pins etc.
March 10 at 9:45 am -- Susanne Christie - Learn how to chenille.
Baby blankets, jackets, purses, stuffed toys, balls, wash cloths and dish cloths can all be made by using a technique called 'chenilling'. Suzanne Christie will show us many samples of her beautiful work.
Bring a notebook and pen to take notes on how to chenille and then how to use the technique to make baby blankets, jackets, purses, toys wash cloths and dish cloths. This Guilders' Goodies will be in the format of a lecture/demonstration. You do not have to bring any sewing supplies.
