Tumbling Reels – an Online Group Workshop – April 28th and June 2nd


This is an online course consisting of a one-hour, ‘Get Ready!’ session where I go through the pattern and show you how I choose colours and what you need to prep. The ‘Get Ready!’ session is followed a few weeks later by the four-hour group workshop, all via zoom. The workshop consists of two one-hour demo’s by me, each followed by solo sewing and questions by you.

Get Ready! -Sunday, April 28th, 5-6pm (BST)

Workshop – Sunday, June 2nd, 5-9pm (BST)

Learning objectives:

The Tumbling Reels workshop is all about Ovals, how to cut the pieces using the NEW Oval and Long Oval Multiple Drunkard’s Path templates and how to sew the really tight curves on the thinnest shape and the big and long curves on the larger shapes, all without using pins. I’ll also show you all my tricks on pressing your curved blocks to make them super flat. Oh, and seam-matching, lots of seam- matching!

In the, ‘Get ready!’ session I talk pattern, templates and colour and I will show you how to cut your curves in preparation for the workshop.

The workshop will be about sewing, pressing and assembling the different ovals. If you are daunted by the sharpness of some of those bends, I’ll give you tips on how to make this pattern easier for you (but give it a try first!). There will also be ideas on how to use other PSS templates to create the look of depth for those of you who already have my templates and is managing to resist the NEW sets;)
