Mandy and Lara do patchwork and quilting

4 Nov

Such a pleasure to work with Mandy and Lara at the Beetlefelt studios on another Patchwork and Quilting series.

A month of Monday evenings stitching and chatting and learning new skills, as well as drinking tea and eating cake are definitely a couple of enjoyable hours well spent.

 

And for all of you tempted there is a new patchwork and Quilting series running at Beetlefelt Studios in February, as well as an Appliqué series running in March. Go to http://www.beetlefelt.co.uk/workshops.html to book onto these workshops.

Hope to see you there. Lx

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!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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…..
