DEMOS AND TUTORIALS

    I HAVE PUT TOGETHER A FEW THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED INTO THE QUILTING WORLD THAT HAVE BEEN GREAT TIME SAVERS AND FUN TO DO.
    FIRST UP IS THE NEW RULERS FROM CREATIVE GRIDS THAT TAKE IN TWO OF THE MOST OFTEN MADE PIECES IN THE QUILTING WORLD. HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES AND FLYING GEESE. THESE RULERS EACH SHOW YOU 3-4 DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE THESE ELEMENTS AND WILL MAKE THEM IN A VERY ACCURATE WAY. WHEN YOU READ A PATTERN AND FIND OUT YOU HAVE TO MAKE 100 PLUS OF EITHER ONE OF THESE, THIS WHEN A TOOL MAKES LIFE EASIER AND WORTH LOOKING AT. DEMO DAY: SEPTEMBER 18 AT 1PM. 
    NEXT UP IS A CATHEDRAL WINDOW QUILT. THIS ONE IS DONE USING 10” SQUARES OR A LAYER CAKE AND IS ALL DONE ON THE MACHINE. IRON FOLD AND SEW IT’S JUST THAT SIMPLE. HAVE FUN MIXING AND MAKING IT AS COLORFUL AS YOU WANT AND JUST THE SIZE YOU WANT. DEMO DAY: OCTOBER 11 AT 1PM. 
    NOW THIS NEXT DEMO IS ONE I GET ASKED ABOUT A LOT. CRAYON COLORED EMBROIDERY. HOW TO COLOR AND SHADE, AND ABOUT THE DIFFERENT STITCHING THAT CAN BE DONE, AND WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THOSE STITCHES. HOW MANY STRANDS OF FLOSS SHOULD I USE, JUST TO NAME A FEW. DEMO DAY: OCTOBER 16 AT 1PM.
