Perfect to pair with all your separates - jeans, skirts, or trousers. Choose cap sleeves for Summer, 3.4 sleeves to make this shirt a good choice for cooler weather.

In this workshop you’ll learn a quick method for placing and making pin tucks, and under Jo’s guidance make alterations for fit or length.

Lisa Mattock "Slow Stitching" One day only

IMG_0671.JPG

Lisa is coming back to Cotton Rose for one day only. I am so looking forward to Lisa’s visit, her classes are simply beautiful and to spend time with her again will be awesome. I have added below Lisa’s description of her Woodlands Series Quilt.

This woodland is the place of my song-dream, the place the music played to me, whispered the Rat toMole, as if in a trance. Here, is my holy place

Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

There is such joy the be found when you stumble upon the first snowdrops and bluebells of the season. The squelching of your gum boots in mud as you forage for wild berries, plump and bursting with colour. Come, notice the details such as acorns on oak trees in the early morning mist. Then stay quiet, and still, for there are glimpses of shy hedgehogs or deer to be found.

There are nine panels in the Woodland quilt, each themed with a differentwoodland motif. In the Woodland Workshop we will work on the Mushroom Panel, but I will also share with you the rest of the story so you can see how it will all come together if you choose to make the full quilt.

A light lunch and morning tea will be provided on the day.

I look forward to seeing you at the class.
