Space is limited to maximise comfort
of the sewing space.
I think we can all agree that we’re fed up with being at home. Hopefully during some of that time you were able to sew and now,
you need some peaceful Away Time to get on with some projects.
Whether you have a mountain of quilt tops or a box of fabrics set aside for a project, join us next spring for a Finish Up and Clear Out session of Patchwork in the Peaks!
Our Finish Up and Clear Out theme is structured around a lot of free time to help you get a project done. If you haven’t gotten started, we are here to help with that too.
To help you Clear Out some scraps, we’ll also be giving short tutorials on the following techniques, for anyone interested. Participation is optional and we will have full instructions on hand if you want to take it away for later.
Fabric Covered Wooden Spoons
Bring your fabric style into the kitchen! You can use up any leftover strips of fabric to wrap around the bases of wooden utensils. We’ll have the necessary decoupage paste needed to make these water resistant and durable.
Fabric Corner Bookmarks
Lots of people prefer an actual book in hand. These adorable, quick to make corner bookmarks are a perfect project for those small scraps. They are so easy, you’ll want to make a stack for everyone. 🙂
And who can ignore these sweet, tiny, houses? They can be a pincushion or just a decoration for your sewing room. We’ll have an assortment of trims you can choose from and feel free to embellish with whatever your heart desires.
Mystery Stash Attack is back!
Please bring a large (3.78l) Ziploc bag of your favourite scraps, no larger than 3″ will be fine. We’ll have a special quick project to put those to good use. You can make it entirely from your scraps or share amongst everyone to find delightful combinations.
In addition to all this creativity, we’ll have the usual lovely dinners made by someone else (the lovely Miss Kayleigh, Chef Extraordinaire), hot tub, massages onsite by Morzine Massage, Dice Swap with fat quarters, goodies & gadgets in The Craft House shop and more to get your creative juices going.
What will you need to bring? All the bits & pieces you’ll need to finish some of your projects! Quilt Fairy Clare & I will be happy to help you in any way we can. Clare will have The Craft House shop onsite as well, with a selection of Aurifil threads, Quilters Dream batting, and a variety of other sewing notions. Anything you need from the mini-mobile shop you you can put it on your Tab, to be invoiced at the end of Peaks.
We also have Suki the Juki, our sit-down longarm, to help you make some progress! You can rent her by the hour (chf 15/hr), enjoying a large and newly renovated dedicated space to work. I already have a number of bobbins wound in neutral colours but will be happy to show you how to wind something from your thread stash if needed.
Need a bit more encouragement? Your own Secret Sister will be there to cheer you on! You’ll be one too and we’ll have lots of ideas to help you help encourage each other. Part of the fun is the secrecy!
Other fun for the weekend:
Fat Quarter Dice Swap: This is a fun little game to exchange Fat Quarters. You’ll need to bring three Fat Quarters (18″ x 22″).
Secret Sister: You’ll be assigned another person in the group to be their Secret Sister. The objective is to provide quiet, “secret” encouragement, in the form of very small gifts or notes, throughout the weekend. We’ll provide lots of ideas to get you started. Secret Sisters will be revealed after dinner on Saturday evening.
Machine Servicing: On Thursday, I will be performing Basic Machine servicing (at special Peaks pricing of chf 55) to all who wish to have a little “tune-up” before getting those needles flying!
If there’s anything else you are dying to know, from how to clean your machine (yes, that little metal bit comes off… 🙂 ) to how to figure out the quilt piecing lingo of a particular project, Clare and I are happy to help.
Afternoons are free time. Continue to work on your PhD’s/UFOs/PIGs, start a new project, have a massage, go for a walk. It’s up to you. There’s a hot tub too so be sure to pack your swimming costume! 🙂
Come join us in the Peaks!
