Christmas Hours

The shop will close at 3pm on 24 December and reopen for business as usual on 13 January 2020. We would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Christmas Catalogues are now out – it is a great time to grab a bargain for yourself or another special person.
 
 
We have some great new classes scheduled for 2020. See below and our Class Page  for further information. Why not give a class as a Christmas present.

Focus of this workshop: Learn to Sew on a domestic sewing machine.

Everyone is sure to learn from these thorough classes.  The classes are aimed at complete beginners through to those who have a little experience but want to improve their sewing.  A great way to learn some textile art prior to commencing college courses, etc or for those just wishing to learn more about sewing and using your machine. Leonie will go through all the techniques you need to produce quality sewing and you will have three different projects to complete during the class.

Cost: $165

Focus: Machine quilting

If you have never quilted before, this is a way for you to begin with a useful project you can accomplish and show off – then move onto a table runner you have made or a quilt if you wish. We will make a sample block and a quilted runner and Leonie will show you how to make your block and runner into a quilted folder with pockets, designed by Leonie West to hold your rulers. At the end of this session you will be able to confidently quilt items such as table runners or cushion covers.

This is an introductory course. A separate course will look at quilting larger items such as blocks, or a quilt top that you have already pieced. You will need to have the Westalee foot and 12” Arc Ruler as a minimum for this course, but will achieve more variation in your work if you have the Westalee Template Sampler set.

Level of skill required for this workshop: Beginners learning to use rulers for quilting. Some machine sewing experience is an advantage.

Cost: $70

Focus: Patchwork – Machine Piecing techniques

Quick and simple blocks are great to make to learn the skills of patchwork on your sewing machine, and they serve as a great springboard to being creative.  In this workshop, we will look at the skills and techniques needed, sew perfect blocks, then mash it up to personalise and make something more sophisticated to show off your skills. 

 Level of skill required for this workshop: This workshop is suitable for beginners and those wanting to explore variations in a traditional block.

 Note: This project uses quilters cotton only.  You need to buy quilting fabric which is 100% cotton.  This can be purchased at Canberra Sewing on the day if you are unsure of what is required.

Cost: $85

Focus: Machine quilting

This course will encourage you to break away from straight lines with the walking foot and be a bit more creative in your quilting, taking you through the steps required and boost your confidence. You will be provided with a choice of designs to work on using material of your own choice.   

This one-day session is an introduction to free motion quilting skills. The aim of the session is to provide the information and guidance to be able to use free-motion quilting on a cushion cover, and to take away the confidence to take your quilting further.

Fabric and batting will be discussed in the session and can be purchased from the store at the time of the class.
