Learn how the Amish draw their beautiful feathers with Andrea Ashwell.  Apply your knowledge to your project - a table runner, a wallhanging, a cushion cover, a cot quilt - let your imagination run riot.

This is a two-day course where you will spend the first day drawing and learning how wholecloth designs are "stamped" on to the quilt top.  On the second day you will start to stitch your design on to your quilt and will learn all the different types of fills and stitches you can use with various threads for Free Machine Quilting for stunning effects.

If you need overnight accommodation, there is a Premier Inn nearby at Polegate.

More information from Debbie Harding as Jan Allston (organiser) will be without internet access from January till 5th May 2017.
