Gunning Patchwork Weekend

Gunning Patchwork Weekend is held each year on the last weekend in June. Perfect timing to break the winter blues! Each year, the weekend attracts well known tutors, but the focus is on completing your projects, eating good food and having fun.

This year's workshops:
  • Wool felt applique with Heather Prickett
  • Silk Shards Wallhanging with Fiona Hammond - learning how to hand-paint fabric with Procion dyes and how to make your own silk “paper”
  • Feathered Stars with Robyn Cawdron - A beautiful pieced feathered star quilt block, a challenge for the more experienced!
  • Eva Doll with Edith Buckley
  • Carol’s Quilt with Carol Tabonne - a scrappy quilt with a pattern of lights and darks.
  • Make a backpack and small bags with Ann Maree Jacobs
If none of these appeal, you can attend the FAT Quarter.  FAT stands for ‘Finish and Talk’. You get great morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, a warm venue to sew in, and the company of like-minded stitchers at a rock-bottom price for one day or two days.

For more information and entry form, go to the Gunning Patchwork Weekend site.
