Zoom Workshop - Sew It and Send It

The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society invites you to

our first Zoom Workshop “Sew It and Send It” with Jane Adolf

All Skill Levels Welcome!

 

All levels of experience are welcome!

Discover how fun it is to make fabric postcards in this hands-on workshop. You’ll learn how to put the “quilt sandwich” together, create and embellish cards for all occasions, and finish off a card that can go in the mail. Several techniques will be covered along with time to play with fabric, embellishments, and your machine. Your domestic machine will be used for assembling, quilting, decorating, and edging your postcards. We’ll learn to use fusible web for securing pieces, and fussy cutting for simple rough edge appliqués. With these materials you’ll be able to create 5 cards…but you won’t be able to stop from making more.


When: December 5, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Cost: $5.00, non-refundable, unless KHQS cancels the event.

Registration opens: November 11, 2020

Deadline to register: December 1, 2020.

Who can participate; This workshop is open to all members in good standing of KHQS.

Minimum: To make this even successful, we need a

minimum of 20 registered KHQS members.

Supply List (for 5 postcards):

6” x 20” of one sided fusible stabilizer (Pellon 71F Peltex Ultra Firm Fusible Stabilizer) or similar firm stabilizer

1 sheet of 9” x 12” double sided light weight fusible web.

*Optional: nonstick sewing machine needle for Steam-A-Seam users

1 sheets of 12” by 12” or 3 sheets of 9” x 12” Cardstock 80 - 110 pound wt. in a light color. I think the “textured” paper gives a nice finished card.

*Optional: fabric for the backing will work, but you’ll have to stick it in an envelope to send.

*Fabric for background pieces, fabrics for fussy cutting, and scraps you love. Cards are 4” x 6”

so pieces under 5” x 7” are big enough, even smaller pieces can work

*Several colors of thread for spool, light and dark thread for bobbins

*Scraps for flat embellishment such as ribbons, rick rack, lace, cord, translucent fabrics, etc. You won’t need much, but it’s fun to have a selection.

*Glue Stick - white, like Elmer’s All Purpose Glue Stick or Avery’s. I like the bigger size.

*scissors for fussy cutting -

*Optional: I recommend a pair like Karen Kay Buckley’s micro serrated blades or at least a pair with fine, sharp points.

*Sewing machine with at least a zigzag stitch. *Presser foot with wide opening (suitable for decorative stitches)

*Basic sewing supplies with rotary cutter and cutting board

*Iron and pressing cloth

 

Bio - Jane Adolf

Jane has spent the last 10 years joyfully exploring sewing, quilting, weaving, gourd art, and other crafts. She works on her long arm, stationary midarm, and domestic machines on a daily basis. Post card art has become her “go to” small project for a quick, creative activity. Her tiny business, Sweet Waddy Jane, sells art cards, gourd ornaments, and anything else that strikes her creative fancy. She is a Co-Chair of the Louisville Modern Quilting Guild and an active member of Kentucky Cover Lovers. Her quilts and gourd art have won many ribbons at the Shelby County and Kentucky State Fairs, and two of her quilts have appeared on Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting.
