Quilt Canada 2015 - Kathy Tidswell, NB - Designing One of a Kind Wearable Art

Have you been thinking of making a jacket, vest or cape that is distinctly "yours"? If so, come to Quilt Canada 2015 in Lethbridge, Alberta and take the Designing One of a Kind Wearable Art with Kathy Tidswell on June 4 and June 5. Sewers and quilters of all levels are welcome. 

This is a class designed to help you make individualized items that fit your lifestyle. You may chose fancy or casual. In addition to learning hints on the types of patterns to choose, you will learn embellishment techniques such as lace cutwork, bobbin work, trapunto, arranging appliqués and new methods for attaching appliqués. Information will be shared on choosing batting for quilted items, or you may choose not to quilt. My outfits often feature appliqué, or appliqué and cutworm with no quilting. 

Come and have some fun and learn some new techniques! You will receive hints on placement of appliqués and produce samples using free motion embroidery on a regular zigzag sewing machine. Then choose which techniques you want to incorporate in your piece and work on your outfit under my tutelage.
