Sewcials

Sewcials held at the Police Academy, 350 Amber Drive, San Francisco.

Workshops: The SFQG recruits stellar teachers from near and far, from within our own guild and as far away as Switzerland! These workshops offer an opportunity to master new techniques, explore the design process, play with color, pick up tips and tricks from both teachers and fellow students, build friendships and have fun.

Upcoming Sewcials


Saturday April 29, 2017 • Freddy Moran
FREDDY'S BACK ... WITH A NEW TWIST ON FABRIC COLLAGE

NOTE LOCATION CHANGE: Community Room of the Ingleside Police Station, 1 Sgt John V Young Street, San Francisco

Freddy Moran’s fabric-collage technique is fast, fun and produces dramatic results: glueing and then sewing fussy-cut florals (or other showy images) onto a black-and-white background. But she’s always innovating, trying graphic colored prints as backgrounds and now flannels. Her results with polka dot flannels, striped flannels and other graphic flannel prints are great!

Minimum enrollment is 15; $50 for SFQG members, $65 for nonmembers.
NOTE: This Sewcial is on the last Saturday of the month to accommodate Freddy’s schedule.

HEXIES MADE EASY

Create Hexie samplers, bags or quilts using Rami’s innovative, no-hand-sewing, quilt-as-you-go technique. We’ll start by learning Rami’s trick for making hexies … simply by folding circles! Then participants can pursue one of three options, all using batiks or solids with front-and-back color.

OPTION 1. Continue making folded, padded hexagons and turn them into a potholder .
OPTION 2. Begin work on Rami’s Zinfandel Bag .
OPTION 3. Begin work on Rami’s Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt.

Each of these options involves advance preparation. Click here to download a PDF with a full descriptions of the approaches you can pursue in this workshop, along with details of the precutting and supplies each option involves. Contact Cathy Miranker with any questions.
