workshop etiquette & supplies
The only people who may be in a classroom while a workshop is
in session are those students who are enrolled in that workshop.
The cafeteria is not to be used if a workshop is in the cafeteria.
Class Angels will be asked to assist in making sure that anyone in
a classroom is on the enrollment sheet.
This policy will be strictly enforced.
For those who would like a space to sew, empty classrooms will
be made available in the evenings whenever possible. However,
please don’t plan to use the apartment in the evenings as the
bedrooms will be used as dorm rooms for the week. Your dorm
room is always available for sewing, provided you are quiet while
others are sleeping. We appreciate your understanding of the
situation, and thank you for your cooperation.

For all workshops, bring basic machine sewing supplies (BMSS).
These basic supplies are not listed separately in each workshop
list. Have these with you for ALL workshops unless the
description identifies the workshop as hand sewing only.

Irons and ironing surfaces will be provided in each room. You
may bring your own iron if desired however due to facility
limitations, the number of irons in use will be limited.
Basic Machine Sewing Supplies (BMSS)

Magazine Sale
If you have quilt
magazines that you no
longer need, consider
donating them to our
magazine sale.

Stretch Out The Kinks
Spend a few minutes following lunch each day
to get those muscles stretched out and ready for
the afternoon’s workshops.
For the Bring & Buy Silent Auction
Bring any quilt-related item (s) for the silent auction. This is a good
time to clean out those projects you don’t want to finish, clear out the
fabrics you don’t want to use, or books taking up room on your sewing
shelves. Large or small, new or used orphans, UFO’s, finished pieces,
tools or fabric are all accepted. Items may be grouped together for
auctioning purposes—so bring it even if it is small. Auction funds
raised are used to defray expenses of the seminar allowing us to keep
fees more affordable. Remember that your unwanted items are often
a new exciting treasure for another quilter!

Tuesday Evenings
Community Service Project
Sewing Workshop
The Center for Courageous Kids is a not for profit
Medical Camping Facility and is a place where
children living with life threatening illnesses and
their families can attend free of charge and have
fun, find respite, feel normal and forget about their
every day struggles. Since inception, over 20,000
medically fragile campers and their families have
visited The Center for Courageous Kids in
Scottsville, KY from 43 different states and eight foreign countries.
This year we will be piecing, quilting and
finishing twin size quilt tops for The Center for
Courageous Kids. These quilts will be used at the
camping facility for use throughout the year.
— Three Ways to Help —
8

Sew with Us. Join us on Tuesday evening as we turn
donated project kits into quilt tops. These tops will be
quick to assemble and you know this wonderful group of
quilters will have a great time stitching up a storm!

Donations of batting and / or backing for twin size quilt
tops. Quilt tops will need to be 65” x 90” to fit the camps
beds.

Donations of time: After the tops are assembled, we need
people to quilt and bind the completed tops. Whether you
have quilted hundreds of quilts or this is your first one, you
can bless others with your skills. Perhaps you took a
machine quilting class last year and need to practice your
quilting skills? This would be a wonderful opportunity to
work on your quilting and help others.
“Every quilt has a story —
the trick is to learn how to read it.”
-Harriet Cowell
A “Bed Turning” is a way of
introducing others to the beauty of
antique or unique quilts in an
interesting and different way.
Please bring your favorite antique or vintage quilt to be
included in our Thursday evening Bed Turning.
Limit one quilt per attendee.
Please plan to provide the following information for our narrator
to read as your quilt is displayed:
 a description of the quilt in regards to materials and time
period created;
 information on the pattern;
 the historical and/or personal significance behind the making
of that particular masterpiece.

English Paper Piecing - The Versatile Hexagon
Class—F2

Instructor:
Leslie Workman
Class Fee:
$12
Finished Size:
Wall Hanging to King
Finished in Class:
1 Block
Level:
All Levels
Description: The art of English Paper Piecing is a handy and accurate method of handsewing often difficult patterns with ease! The possibilities are endless once you learn
the techniques. Basting fabric around stiff paper templates then sewing them together
takes the seam allowance guess work out of the picture! We will use 1 ½” hexagons to
create either traditional flower garden or modern diamond shape quilt “squares” that
can be added to or appliqued down at your discretion. Imagine a quilt project you
really can take with you to ballgames, appointments, etc. because all you need fits in a
small plastic container! Class time will be all rotary cutting and hand sewing.
Techniques: Template cutting, fabric choices & planning, techniques specific to English
paper piecing, easy hand basting & invisible whip-stitching
Supplies:
Note: For CLASS we will (mostly) get one flower or diamond done.

3-4 colors that you like together (coordinating or complimentary) - a fat quarter of
EACH one will yield enough for class work. If making a large project, note on
registration and we will provide you with additional fabric requirements.
Thread for basting – old thread, serger thread, odd color, etc
Good 100% cotton thread for sewing – color should coordinate with fabrics – light
or medium Grey/Taupe is great when in doubt
Small rotary mat–esp. one that spins if you have it.
Small rotary cutter
Rotary ruler 4 ½” X 12” or 6 1/2” X 24” (small is better with fat quarters)
Sharps for basting
Short, thin needles for whip-stitching
A few straight pins – I don’t suggest long quilting pins
Small sharp scissors – like embroidery scissors
Ott Lite if you need it
