Rainy Day Runner workshop...
Our venue was the light and airy studio at the Castle Court quilt shop in Whittington and I took along a Lemon Drizzle cake - I do like a theme - to keep us all going.
I put together a special edition of the Jolly Brollies pattern: a Rainy Day Runner. Although some of the class are going on to make a quilt, many just wanted to try a new block and learn some new techniques. A runner is always a fun, achievable project for a workshop. One lady actually finished her piecing and everyone went home with finished blocks.
And, oh my word, it was fun. A whole day sewing with friends? Yes please.
Have you ever been to a workshop? It's always worth asking at your local fabric shop or getting in touch with a local quilting group to see what's on offer. And if there's nothing available locally, have you thought about joining an online workshop? I wrote a little about my own experiences here.
Or how about organising your own with friends? Pick a block you all want to try and make a few to assemble into a table runner. Just add laughter.
Oh, and don't forget the cake...
