Patchwork and Quilting at Beetlefelt studios

13 Jun

Sadly another Patchwork and Quilting series at Beetlefelt Studios finished on Monday night. But what can I say; we all enjoyed the chat and also got some stitiching done too!

My Patchwork and Quilting series of four evening classes is a whistle stop introduction to Patchwork and Quilting techniques. Inbetween the chat there are lots of Patchwork demonstrations, with an idea to develop these into a future project.

Lots more creative workshops are on at Beetlefelt studios.

My Desk Now (see My Desk Before on this board)  Little French chair with Cole & Son's fab geometric wallpaper   This is Flossie - she's a curvy, sassy flapper girl, who loves dancing at Palm Court and smoking cigarettes from holders (in my imagination of course)  Beautiful rare French chair upholstered in Designers Guild Royal Collection fabrics; we call her The Duchess as she's rather very grand.  Bloke's hunting scene room-set (but the wife got involved and made him have silk curtains)  The design area

On another note, I have just starting a new Patchwork and Quilting series at Beetlefelt studios.

It’s all go…..
