April

April Workshop- April 3 - Quiltworks

Dresden Plate Quilt- Dot Collins

The Dresden plate design for this quilt is made up of nine segments - 40- degree wedges sewn together to make the plate. The plate that is formed is machine appliquéd   to   the   background and a center circle or hexagon is appliquéd on top in each block. The   blocks are 12”square and are divided by 2” sashings. The blocks may be set straight or on-point   to create varying looks. The blocks may be done by piecing three or nine different   fabrics for the wedges or by using 9 repeats of a print fabric stacked and cut to create the plate.

May

May Workshop- May 2- Quilters Crossings

Heat-Set Machine Applique - Grace Errea 

In this class you will learn to use an applique technique so new and revolutionary, you will use nothing else once you try it. It is easy, foolproof and the results are always amazing.This technique leaves the quilt and the fabric soft and manageable, not sti and board-like, as fusible webs and glues do. The best however, is that you can do raw edge applique without any fraying edges!! This technique produces a no-fray raw edge applique as a result.

            WORKSHOPS!!!!!

E-mail Marietjie Engelbrecht at www.tcqgprograms@gmail.com to get your name on the list. We will run a waiting list after the class is filled, so that if someone cancels, you might be the lucky next person on the list and get in the class.


Some basic rules for Workshops:
·         All workshops must be prepaid by check, cash or Credit Card.  If you don’t pay when signing up, your place in the workshop is not guarantee.
·         All workshops are highly funded by the board and that’s why workshop fees are only $45, cash or check, or $46.50 with Credit card.
·         No workshop is refundable, but if there is a waiting list, and we can fill your place, you can get a refund.
·         No member is allowed to sell her place in a workshop to another member.  If you can’t make it, you must contact the program chair.  Only with the program chair permission you can make arrangements for the other member to replace you if there is no waiting list.
·         Workshops starts at 9:30 sharp.  Quilt shops will open at 9:00 to give you enough time to setup.





REMEMBER,  your spot is not secure until payment of $45.00 is received!
Beginning September, 2016, non-members of the Tri-County Quilt Guild who attend a guild sponsored workshop will be charged an additional $10.00 above the regular work shop fee.
