The word sustainable has so many different meanings, but to us, it means re-using and giving new purpose for old fabric where its current use is no longer meaningful or where the fabric is worn out and ripped. There are plenty of opportunities to give new purpose to damaged or treasured old garments, pillow cases or Op Shop wonders. Sustaining fabric by unpicking it in its current form, washing it with care and love, giving it new life and creating a quilt to keep someone warm is a wonderful process.
Josie will run this class and over two nights, will set you on your way to make a sustainable quilt. Note: You can choose to either hand stitch or use a machine to construct your quilt. The choice is yours.
The first night we will discuss fabrics and pattern choices and we will provide suggestions and inspiration for you. If you have a favourite quilt pattern you wish to use, bring it down!
What to bring:
*A selection of your ready-to-use fabrics/garments/treasures to cut;
*Scissors, Cutter, Cutting mat, rulers, needles, threads, etc.
You will need to start now to source your fabrics for your quilt. 100% Cotton or Linen's are the types of fabric you will use. They will need to be washed and clean ready for their new life.
If you love fabric, texture and creating something very different, then come to this very different class. Come and share in some inspiration.
