SewDown Philadelphia is just 3 weeks away! We are so excited to hang out, sew, share new ideas and learn a ton from our amazing instructors and YOU!
You all know Elizabeth Hartman from her best selling books The Practical Guide to Patchwork and Modern Patchwork. As well as her popular blog Oh, Fransson!
In this class, students will learn a simple and fun quilt-as-you-go technique that combines scrappy patchwork with utility fabrics to create sturdy panels for a polished tote bag that stands on its own without the use of interfacing.
Topics covered in class will include fabric selection, fussy cutting, and quilt-as-you go tricks like finding a perfect stitch length, joining multiple areas of patchwork, and preventing seam allowances from showing through. She will also go over some of her favorite bag finishing tricks, including making handles, adding pockets, making a stay-put lining, and making a top facing. Students will leave class with a variety of tips and tricks that can be applied to many bag-making projects.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take Elizabeth’s class and soak up all her knowledge!
Join us in Philadelphia– New friends, amazing workshops, a swanky hotel and all delicious meals included for this weekend get away!
