Great news! Amy Dame is coming to our Sew-In on November 16! And she’s doing her Improv Bulls Eye Pillow workshop! If you are coming to the sew-in, Amy’s workshop is included (remember – the sew-in fee is $20). Woo hoo!
Amy describes her Improv Bulls Eye Pillow workshop this way:
“In this class I’ll help you get comfortable sewing improv curves and we’ll talk about finding your favourite techniques for exploring improv patchwork. We’ll discuss different construction options for cushions or throw pillows and I’ll teach you my preferences, which result in a sturdy, washable, usable pillow covering. You’ll learn how to install a zipper, piece, quilt and assemble a pillow and you’ll leave with an almost finished project. I’ll bring some examples, and we’ll look at different ways to use a ¼ circle, so once you’ve fallen in love with the technique, you’ll have tons of ideas for more projects!” If you were lucky enough to take Amy’s workshop at the Portland Meet-up, Amy says you can bring your top and make it into a pillow.

amy dame has been a member of the executive for Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild since 2010, a member of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild since 2011, and pretty much has quilting on the brain 24-7. After sewing for more than 20 years, she’s a fount of random knowledge, and totally geeks out about sharing it with anyone who’ll listen. amy’s teaching philosophy is centered around the idea that it’s great to learn the “proper techniques”, but whatever way works for you is the best way to do it! she blogs at http://craftydame.blogspot.ca, some of the time.
Doesn’t it all sound like so much fun?!
