Everyone can do it! Hand Quilting is easy, relaxing and a great way to add another textured dimension to hand made projects such as pillows, tote bags, tea cosys, clothing, table runners, wall-hangings, lap quilts and larger bed quilts. Hand quilting can show your individuality using unique designs and coloured quilting thread.

This class will teach the basics of hand quilting from the beginning, focusing on but not limited to: fabrics, needles, quilting threads, marking pencils, templates, patterns to trace, basting, batting, backing, frames vs hoops and more.

If you can thread a needle, you can hand quilt! (If you can't I will teach you!)

Catherine has been crafting for many years and will pass on her experience of using needle felting techniques to produce a personalised greeting card.

2D needle felting is an easily mastered, simple technique that enables you to make beautiful and imaginative pictures from unspun wool applied to fabric. These versatile pieces can be framed, or used to embellish clothes, soft furnishings and bags.

In this class you will learn how to turn your picture into a greetings card.

For this basic session we will be using a chunky needle felting tool that may be manageable for those whose fingers no longer do what they used to!

If you have a picture of a landscape or seascape that you would like to reproduce, bring it along.

All materials are included in the cost and tools may be purchased at the end.

Learning Techniques 6

Tutor: Tootie MacKenzie
Location: West Church Hall
Day: Sunday 13th March 2022
Time: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Cost: £35.00

Skills required: Suitable for beginners

Tooty MacKenzie is an all-round crafter but has focused on knitting since taking over Travelling Yarns with her sister, Frieda Matheson, a few years ago. Though Tooty lives in Inverness she is a regular visitor to Inverasdale, near Poolewe, where Travelling Yarns is based. Travelling Yarns can be found in the Social Club and stocks a wide range of yarn, knitting supplies (including Jamiesons of Shetland) and sock yarn.

In this class you will learn how to knit a trainer/ankle sock in cotton/polyamide. You will be using circular needles, rather than the usual double pointed needles, and because it is a short sock you will quickly get to turn the heel! You will also learn to knit with elastic to create a snug rib.

Materials supplied include a ball of Regia cotton/polyamide yarn, knitting elastic and 2 buttons.

Please bring stitch markers, tape measure, scissors and 2 sets of 3mm x 40cm circular needles (available to purchase on the day if necessary)
