September 2017 Workshop

Annie Smith 

Absolutely Essential Machine Applique

Date: Tuesday, September 12, 2017                 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Location: Paradise Sewing 12633 Poway Road Poway, CA 92064

Beautiful machine applique is easily achieved when you begin
with the basic fundamentals. This is a 1-day workshop on how-
to rather than a project, which takes the fear out of applique so
you can concentrate on the technique of the craft. You learn
three ways to do machine applique while creating a small sam-
ple. Kit Fee: $15 includes fabric and pattern.

October 2017 Workshop

Linda Pohlenz 

Hinge Workshop

Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017                 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Location: Paradise Sewing 12633 Poway Road Poway, CA 92064

A four square kit is provided for each student. This kit enables
each student the time to practice the quilt-as-you-go hinge
technique where all seams are sewn by machine. (No more
hand sewing with this modern quilt-as-you-go technique.) Us-
ing quilt-as-you-go methods, students build their quilt a block
at a time and then assemble. When assembly is done, the quilt
is completely finished. Students can make Fun 2 Be Squared
and Flipped over hinging with the quilt-as-you-go technique.

Pieced Hexies Buffet

Date: Monday, November 13, 2017                 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Location: Paradise Sewing 12633 Poway Road Poway, CA 92064

Join me and learn how to take the Hexie to a whole new level with
my Pieced Hexies Patterns. Together we will create a SPIKE, JACKS
and JAZZY Pieced Hexies in this workshop. Some English Paper
Piecing experience would be helpful, but not necessary. Students will
leave class with three new design samples and their imagination
running wild. “Pieced Hexies are a lot like potato chips…you can’t
stop at just one. And making them keeps your hands busy and out of
the chip bowl…so bonus-bonus!”– Mickey Depre

Join Sylvia as she does the Twist and then add “a little some-

teach you how to make your quilt “square” by the method used
to add borders. That will be followed by the Mitered Binding
Bosonova. I will show you how to apply a perfectly mitered
binding, as well as how to connect the two ends accurately
every time. Then I will share the rules that quilt judges apply to
your bindings.

many of my techniques.
