Hexibore – an In-person Masterclass at Janome HQ, November 12th


This is an in-person workshop held at Janome UK HQ. The workshop consists of a one-hour ‘Get Ready!’ session via zoom three weeks before the workshop to discuss the pattern, colour, templates and what prep you can do, followed by a full day at Janome UK HQ, in their purpose-built training facility in Stockport. The ‘Get Ready!’ session will be recorded for you to watch again.

Times and Location (Note the two different meeting times and dates):

Get Ready! – Tuesday, October 8th, 1:30-2:30pm (via zoom)

Workshop – Tuesday, November 12th, 10am-4pm (Janome UK HQ, Unit 1 Southside, Bredbury, Stockport SK6 2SP)


Learning objectives:

In this techniques class you’ll learn to sew no-pin curves in different sizes using my Complete and Long Oval Drunkard’s Path templates. The different sized curves are assembled and cut into wedges that, joined together, create a kaleidoscope style flower with either six or four petals. I will show you how to get accurate angles on your wedges and how to get the seams to match. As usual there will be lots of ideas on how to make your own version and how to best use the different sized blocks and the wedges in your own design.

I’ll show you how I choose colours and how different colour values will help enhance the ‘folds’ in the petals.

We will be using the Complete and Long Oval Drunkard’s Path template sets in this class. The paper version of the templates is included but, if you decide only the Acrylic templates will suffice, you’ll receive a 10% class discount code upon booking the class. The Acrylic templates are highly recommended for ease and accuracy, especially if you are a stickler for precision.
