Mariners Compass at Kings Park

Posted in Classes, Make It!, Quilts

A class of students recently made up a group of stunning projects during a class Chris tutored at our Kings Park store.  They were so lovely, photos were taken at the end.  However, there’s always one wag in every class who kept the ladies laughing.

If you would like to easily learn how to make something as lovely as this, check out the class schedules for your nearest Hobbysew store.

Garment Making Workshops

Posted in Belconnen

Here is a lovely photo of all the ladies (Michelle, Debbie, Nicole and Jess) who late last year completed our first beginner’s Garment Making class run by Bernadette Thomas from Needlewitch.

In this class you warm up by making a tote bag and then move onto these sleep pants that have a contrast trim on the cuffs and waist band.  Along the way you learn about all the basics of correct measuring, selecting a pattern, working out sizing, laying and cutting out – as well as sewing properly! You also come away with lots of information on needles, threads, haberdashery and tools, ease and pressing.

As Bernadette is formally trained and actually practices as a dressmaker, you are being taught by someone who is in the industry.  Classes are being run throughout 2013 so be sure to check out the workshop schedule.

Great job ladies!

Super cute robots

Posted in Belconnen

Have a look at this new class sample we have hanging in the shop!  The little stitchery is bordered by a bright and fun selection of fabrics that really set of the thread colours.  If you would like to make one of your own, give the shop a call to ask about the pattern.

How can you resist this simple little design!
