TMQG Presents: A Weekend with Sarah Fielke

The Tasmanian Modern Quilt Guild are thrilled to announce that Sarah Fielke will be travelling to Hobart for a weekend of workshops in August. Sarah is an incredibly talented and accomplished quilter, and we are delighted that we will have the opportunity to offer workshops with her. You can keep up to date with Sarah's gorgeous work on her website, The Last Piece. 

We are offering two workshops; the details of both can be found below. Each workshop focuses on one of Sarah's techniques, both of which will be a great addition to your quilty repertoire. 

SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST - DEFINITION OF STITCH


Learn to piece improvisational lettering! 

You can make any word you like in this class, or begin to make Sarah’s quilt, which is the dictionary definition of the word stitch, and was featured at QuiltCon 2015.

A fun and free way to add text to your quilts with no templates, specialised rulers or rules.

A technique able to be used in any quilt you please, by making Sarah’s award winning quilt.
