Split the Difference with Kirsty Duncan

Date:  February 2023

Venue:  Hohepa, 23 Barrington Street, Cashmere 

Price: $70

This is a improv scrap quilt, for all levels of participants.

You don’t need to buy new fabric….. altho you can of course….. but just use your scrap bin.

Kirsty says bring all your scraps…… well does she knows how much that could be for some of us, I might need my trailer

This is a new quilt she has made (still to be bound!), you will get the techniques and make it your own.

The photo of the quilt here is lap-sized and was made entirely from Kirsty’s scrap bin (no cheating) with the intention of showing you how to use  up all of your crumbs.

Your quilt may look nothing like this one when you’re done and part of the fun of the class will be exploring the infinite possibilities of this process.

Rhino Head with Mary - Jane Sneyd

Date: Posponed 

Time: 9:30-am – 4:pm

Venue: Hohepa, 23 Barrington Street, Cashmere

Price: $120 for members +  Kit fee if required.

An intermediate level class

Class level: For intermediate quilters. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE ABLE TO DRAW. I have never done art and I cannot draw to save myself. 

 Previous experience: It would help if you knew how to use fusibles or have done fusible fabric collage previously. In the end you will have to sew every individual piece down so you also need to know your sewing machine well! 

 Class size: Restricted to 10 people so each person gets individual attention.
