    Puzzle -  a Zoom Workshop with Peter Byrne!!!

    Join us for an exciting beginner-friendly workshop with Peter Byrne on Zoom.  Yes – we’re making his Puzzle design which won first place in the Modern Category at Quilt Canada this summer!!  Now he will teach us how to apply his techniques on our own contemporary/modern mini version!

    This technique-based workshop covers improv piecing, fusible appliqué, spray basting, hanging triangles, and walking foot quilting.   So much, that the workshop runs over two partial days!  Choose a kit (3 colourways), or your own ombre fabric.  See links below for details.

    Kits:  $35+shipping    

    If interested in kits:  Please email when you register (online, or in person).  Choose a colourway, either Blue, Red, or Green.  In January we will see if we can bulk order to save on shipping.  If too few people opt for kits, they will need  to order directly from Peter.  For questions, email Workshops or talk with Emily at meetings.
