Thread Cards

I am using my Thread Cards for the first time with a project and I love them. I've been obsessed with how to present the threads in my kits and tried various hand drawn designs, but kept coming back to the card with holes in.

After help from Zanidesigns I have the perfect card with all my branding on too and some of my work on the back!  These will be given out at The Handmade Fair in September 15-17th @ Hampton Court and will be filled with threads in my kits.

Quilt from scratch workshop

In conjunction with The Quilter's Den on Smith Street in Warwick, Bobbin Wren is proud to announce our first Quilting Workshops.

You will create a quilt from start to finish. If you have ever fancied making a quilt, but never known where to start, this is the workshop for you.

Held over 2 days (Saturday 2nd September and Saturday 23rd September), Kellie will take you through each stage from choosing your fabrics, preparing them, cutting, piecing, quilting and binding.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand the jargon or how to use the tools and equipment as Kellie will take it slow and make sure that you understand each step.

By the end of the 2 days you will have a beautiful quilt and feel confident to make another one yourself.

The workshop will be delivered in The Quilters Den on Smith Street, Warwick.  There is a car park round the back that is easy to walk to. We will be using the studio in the back room that has workstations, power, irons and all the rest of the equipment that we will need.
Just bring your sewing machine, fabric and sewing kit if you have it.

Book by contacting Anita @ The Quilters Den – 01926 408247 and you can join the events on Facebook.

Price - £35 for each workshop
