Ambassador Event with Telene Jeffrey - Basic Feathers and Grids
Date: Wednesday 21st to Thursday 22nd September 2022 (2-day course)
Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm
Venue: Pinhole Quilting Showroom, WR10 2LF
Now who doesn’t love feathers?
In this class students will be taught how to draw and stitch-out the basic traditional feather based on Telene’s shape breakdown and technique. Her explanation of the frond shape and construction is a bit different from the norm and sits well with students who struggle with feathers. From there we'll cover grids. Grids are an excellent way to produce texture and interest in the open spaces of your quilt. Day two will be a combination of stitching and then colouring in our stitched fat quarter using Inktense watercolour pencils.
This two day Ambassador Event with Handi Quilter Ambassador Telene Jeffrey will cover:
Day 1 - Feathers and Grid Fills
Day 2 - Feather and Grid a Fat Quarter and colour your sample with Inktense
The total cost for this event is £400

This event is for Handi Quilter Owners Only. 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 national and international quilt teachers.
The program in more detail will comprise:
● First drawing then stitching
● Telene’s technique of understanding the feather and frond shape
● The two stitching methods (full frond and bump-bump-back)
● Adding boundaries to extend feathers
● Splitting the vein and options of stitching vein or just drawing vein
● Best feather exercise for homework
We’ll continue in the afternoon with Grid Fills. Do you find that you struggle to achieve an even fill? Find out what can be achieved with a basic stencilled grid. Students will explore various design options based on a grid as guidance to achieve wonderful block patterns and fill designs.
On Day 2 we’ll take the techniques you learnt on Day 1 and with some simple design techniques you’ll quilt a fat quarter size sample.
In the afternoon we’ll cover Inktense watercolour pencils techniques to Inktense that sample.
Visit the Derwent website to find out more about Inktense watercolour pencils. If you have Inktense pencils please bring them with you. We will provide a selection for you to use otherwise.
The process for booking will be first come first served
We will have all machines in the Handi Quilter range at the Ambassador Event, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to use the same type of machine. For hands-on sessions, wherever possible we will try to match the machine you use to the one that you own.
