The Kenya Quilt Guild is always on the lookout for good teachers and their workshops. Workshops to be offered soon are listed below. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
All workshops are held at Shalom Centre, off Ngong Road beyond The Junction shopping centre, from 9:00 a.m until 4:00 p.m. Come early and be set up and ready to work when the workshop begins. Bring a mug (not supplied) for tea or coffee (supplied), drinking water and a packed lunch or order drinks and lunch from Larena Restaurant next door. Workroom will be closed during the lunch hour.
Please read our post Quilt Workshop Etiquette: 10 Tips before you register for a workshop. Be confident that you can abide by the guidelines set forth there before you commit.
If you are interested in attending one or more of these workshops, please email us from the Contact form in the sidebar at left. Your message will be forwarded to the workshop organizer who will contact you by return.
If you are a teacher who would like to offer quilt workshops in Kenya, and if you will be within 4,000 miles of the country and have time to visit with us, please let us know. We will be happy to correspond with you about having you teach in Kenya at some future date.
CRAZY PIECED CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS
This is a full day class and will be held at Shalom House (or at Gill’s house in Loresho if numbers are small) on Thursday, 22nd November. If you would like to learn crazy quilting, but do not want to make a stocking, you can make a cushion cover or wall hanging using the same technique. If you plan to join the class, start collecting your scraps. Seasonal reds and greens make lovely festive stockings but you can also go for shiny silks, satins and velvets for a luxurious look. Light weight furnishing fabrics also work well. You will also need scraps of lace, ribbon, embroidery threads and embellishments. There will be some scraps of fabric available at the class for sharing.
Cost of class 1,200/- Supply list will be distributed at the meeting on Thursday, 15th November.
