Flying Geese Patchwork Pouch Bag
November 16, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
One event on January 13, 2018 at 10:30am
Join Gill and begin your patchwork journey! Using the flying geese pattern you’ll create a beautiful and useful zippered, padded, and lined pouch bag. This workshop is particularly suitable for anyone new to patchwork as the design is relatively simple to create using a repeating series of steps.
To take part in this workshop you must be familiar with your sewing machine, able to thread it, wind a bobbin, and change the presser foot. You must also have a zipper foot. You don’t need to know how to sew in a zip as Gill will share her technique to achieve a very neat finish.
Materials for this workshop are not included in the price. The list of what you need to bring can be found here.
The workshop may overrun depending on the skills and abilities of the group.
