Masterclass workshop:

Hand Quilting with Abigail Booth

Saturday 6 July 2019 11 am – 4 pm

An exclusive opportunity to join artist Abigail Booth of studio practice Forest + Found and learn the beautiful art of hand-stitched  quilting. Learn the skills needed to create and hand finish your own quilt.

You will learn the techniques of hand quilting using the traditional Baptist Fan design used by Amish quilt makers or transfer a design of your own making onto a fabric of your choice. Abigail will teach you how to layer a quilt ready for hand-stitching, and show you various techniques such as ‘burying your threads’ to give a clean finish on the surface of your quilt. Towards the end of the session you will be shown how to bind your sample by hand using a blind stitch.
