Saturday Workshop: 2nd half of Snapshot: Start a Picture Quilt

Continuation of November workshop.  Students reassemble to fuse together their fabric sketches.


February 21, 2018                7:15 – 9PM               Norfolk County Agricultural HS

Topic: ”Comfort Quilt Sew-a-Thon”

On a cold winter’s night, there is nothing more heartwarming than working with friends to make quilts to be given to people in need!

Individuals may choose their task for the evening.   Some people are needed to cut fabric, others for making kits or ironing. You may opt to do machine piecing*, or hand sew bindings or labels. With many hands and hard work, there should be a number of quilts ready for giving by the end of the meeting!


*If you wish to do machine sewing, please BYO sewing machine.

Bob Harrison
½ Day Saturday Workshop: Featherweight Maintenance


 During this 3½-hour workshop, you will learn how to give your hard-working little lady, the Singer Featherweight, the TLC she deserves to keep her running smoothly!

Using a projected live-feed camera, Bob will demonstrate all the steps to oiling, greasing, and polishing your favorite little Featherweight sewing machine. He'll then circulate through the class as you work on your own machine, guiding you through the maintenance tasks. You'll learn how to do it all yourself with plenty of expert guidance!

As an added bonus, machine parts and accessories are available at the workshop as are simple repairs.
