Upcoming Classes

New Hoopsisters Club

A whole NEW Hoopsisters Club! We will meet once a month for a seminar style class on the projects for the month. We will go over tips and tricks for the projects and review the instructions for the project. This is also a great time to ask questions about past projects, discuss possible trouble shooting issues, share ideas on what you did with the projects and show off completed projects. Bring show and tell and a USB and the files will be loaded during class.

Hoopsisters Sisterhood Quilt

The 2019 Block of the Month is Fleur de Lis. If you have an embroidery machine with an embroidery field of 5” or more, you will have so much fun making this quilt. All the piecing and quilting are in the hoop of your embroidery machine. There are 5 sizes to choose from ranging from 5” to 9”. Depending on your embroidery field and desired quilt size, you can make a wall hanging to King size quilt. This class is a great way to get to know your embroidery machine and make an amazing quilt.

Watermelon Placemat

Join Quiltworxs Certified Instructor Julie Faulkner to make the fun for summer Watermelon Placemats. A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used to assemble the units required to make these placemats. Curved piecing is used to join the units after the foundation piecing is completed. The placemats also incorporate laser cut stitch and peel for applique of the melon seed design. The pattern includes enough foundation papers for six placemats.

Stocking Day

We have set aside Wednesdays in July and August to make stockings for the Chilliwack Christmas Bureau. Since we are all sooooo busy in November and December. We thought this would be an ideal time to have “Christmas in July and August”. So all you need is your machine basic sewing supplies and cutting tools. Fabric is supplied! So bring your lunch (or visit Hofstead’s next door!) and help us make Chilliwack Children have a better Christmas.

Kimberbell Bench Pillow – Boo!

The only thing scary about this project is the theme! If you are looking at expanding your machine embroidery skills and move into multi-hooping projects then this is the class for you. We will create this cute pillow by marking our fabric and re-hooping multiple times as we create this cute pillow top. If you do not want to use it as a bench pillow the completed project can be turned into a simple table runner or small wall hanging. Also note that some pre-class prep work will be required.

Reindeer Wallhanging or Santa Sack

Do you have grandchildren, nieces, nephews, small children in your life that you would like to create a Christmas memory for them or their parents?

Playing With Your Jellyroll

Shadow Boxes

This is an “oldie but goodie”. The pattern has been around for a while, but it’s very “fat quarter friendly”, especially if you’ve bought a fat quarter “bundle” of co-ordinated fabrics (which is what I used), and then two colours that go with your fat quarter colours, one light and one dark.
