Regular price £85.00

Saturday 9th March 2019

We are delighted to welcome award winning quilter and textile artist Philippa Naylor to Needle & Thread!  Philippa has had great success in quilt shows in both the UK and America, and won many prizes, you may have seen her beautiful minature quilt Measure for Measure (below) at the Festival of Quilts last year, it won both the Minature Quilts Category and Best in Show. We are very excited that Philippa will be giving two workshops with us, the first of all about Trapunto and Corded Trapunto!

Trapunto and Corded Trapunto 

Learn how easy and versatile trapunto and corded yarn trapunto can be. Both fabulous ways of adding sculptural dimension to your work, giving a lovely combination of line and shape definition.

Discuss material and equipment preferences, and gain insight into original and distinctive designs. After demonstrations students produce a small trapunto and corded trapunto sample quilt using the techniques Philippa employs in her own work.  There will be a choice of different patterns to accommodate different tastes and ability levels!

Suitable for All Levels.

Materials* and equipment are included.  We also spoil you with a delicious lunch, and serve you with copious amounts of tea, coffee and sweet treats to keep you going!

Philippa has provided a complete materials list which will be emailed to you Needle & Thread will be providing most items on the list, the only items you need to bring along are numbers 1, 3 and 6 (and 17 if you wish to), but do feel free to bring any of your own materials/sewing notions listed if you would rather use your own. We are providing all the sewing machines with required feet.

You will need to bring:
1. One quilt sandwich measuring 24” square. This should be made with low loft wadding (batting). The fabric is best if it is a pale colour with any design being subtle. We will be transferring a design from printed paper to the fabric by placing the fabric on top of the paper - so please check that your fabric is not so dense or dark that this is not possible. Thank you! No need to tack or pin this sandwich.

3. A small selection of machine sewing threads. Please bring threads that are self
coloured and threads that contrast with your fabric. Shiny 40 weight embroidery style polyester thread looks nice in machine work.

7. A pair of small sharp scissors.

Limited places so do book early!
