Update 13/9/21

Sorry - This Workshop can no longer be booked. If you booked it we will advise you if you have a place shortly.

This four-day Ambassador Event with Handi Quilter Ambassador and Educator Lynda Jackson will cover:

Day 1 - Thread Play and Rulers

Day 2 - Feathers

Day 3 - Wholecloth Design

Day 4 - We'll put it all together when you'll stitch out your final design. 

The simplicity of what has been described belies the depth of the teaching and the one-on-one instruction that you'll receive at the Pinhole Quilting Showroom near Pershore, Worcestershire, England.

Lynda is not just a world-class quilter.  She is an excellent teacher who inspires others.  We had many positive comments following the classes she taught at this year's Festival of Quilts, including this one, for example: "I thoroughly enjoyed Lynda’s workshop – she is an inspiring teacher!" (Jenni).

Lynda Jackson was awarded "Best in World" at the Mancuso World Quilt Show in 2018 with her gorgeous quilt "Silver Linings".  You can read more about her many accolades on the Handi Quilter website. Many Handi Quilter owners will know her as one of the founders and an administrator of Longarm Learning Curve, which is an invaluable resource on Facebook and of her help for the many Handi Quilter owners throughout the world who have joined the group.  Advice and encouragement is freely available as quilters progress in the use of their Handi Quilter Longarm machines.

We hope that you can join us either for the "Full Immersion" (which includes accommodation) or as a "Day Student". In either case, we're confident that it will be a step change in your longarming experience. 

The cost of the "Full Immersion" is £1,220.

Includes:
* All teaching, class materials and fabric
* Lunches on course days
* One person per machine for machine sessions
* Accommodation (Room and Breakfast, 5 nights - 4th to 9th October)
* Dinner on 4 nights, 3 course dinner and welcome drinks on first night
* You'll arrive on the 4th October 2021 and checkout of your accommodation on Saturday 9th October.

Other expenses such as your own drinks, extras are not included. Terms and conditions will be confirmed prior to booking. Please check with us prior to booking if you have special dietary requirements as not all requirements may be catered for.

The "Day Student" rate is £720. 

There is also the option of Day Students joining us for the dinner each night (costs to be confirmed).
Includes:
* All teaching, class materials and fabric
* Lunches on course days
* One person per machine for machine sessions

This event is for Handi Quilter Owners Only.  It is certain to be oversubscribed - one of the reasons for purchasing from Pinhole Quilting is that we are Europe's leading longarm specialists and we offer an ongoing education programme with leading quilt teachers.

The program in more detail will comprise:

Day 1 - Rulers and Thread Play

* Markings on rulers - what do they mean?

* How to Use

* Positioning

* Echo Feet

* Creating designs and borders

* Play Time!

* Using different threads

* Stitching out the same designs but with different weights and design size and trying out the Micro Foot

Day 2 - Feathers

* Drawing practice - muscle memory

* Stitching practice

* Formal

* Fancy

* Playful

* Borders

* Fitting into shapes

Day 3 - Wholecloth Design

* Wholecloth Design Work

* Transfer your design to fabric

* Preparation for Day 4

Day 4 - Putting it all together

* Stitch out your wholecloth on fabric up to 40" square

* Treat as a wholecloth or treat as 4 quarters with different fills - your choice!

* Review

The process for booking will be that you can reserve either a Standup (10 places) or Sitdown (6 places). You'll select "Full Immersion" or "Day Student" place. If you choose Day Student you can elect to join in with evening meals at a later stage.

The initial deposit will be £50.

Places will be open on our www.handiquilter.co.uk website until 12 midnight 6th September 2021. Extended until 12 midnight 11th September 2021.

If the event is over-subscribed we will run a lottery as a way of selecting places.

If there is sufficient interest then we will run a second event from 26th to 29th October 2021.

The programme will be identical to the first event. If you are unsuccessful in getting a place in either event then your £50 will be refunded.

As there are insufficient rooms at the venue to accommodate everyone, there is a second accommodation option available or you can find your own accommodation - there are lots of good options locally for non-weekend days at this time of year around Pershore. Visit our website on this link.

We are delighted to once again present a premium training opportunity for our customers!
