'Miniature' : Workshop with Jane Gibson

Rumours are that "Miniature" piecing and design skills will be needed for the 2014 Guild Challenge.

And who better to divulge the intricate skills of Miniature Quilt construction than the maestro of tiny piecing, Jane Gibson.

A Star Sampler Miniature Quilt Workshop will be taught by Jane at the end of November.
In this class, participants will learn the tricks of tiny cutting and accurate piecing using a rotary cutter and sewing machine. 

They can choose to copy the quilt Jane presents, or make one using their own design. A variety of block patterns will be provided to help in selection. She will also help those who are intrigued by the intricacies of constructing 1/8th inch logs, as shown in the tiny Log Cabin Quilts that Jane is known for. She says there is a very simple method to sewing tiny logs, and is willing to share her technique during the workshop.

There are still some vacancies in this workshop and interested members are advised to book in as soon as possible by phoning the Guild Office 

A downloadable Workshop Booking Form can be used or the hard copy (or photocopy) of the form can be used from page 29 of the August Template.
