The Mindful Stitch 

Learn the gentle art of hand quilting with Kate Ranson @fine.line.stitch

In this modern world of speed and technology, enjoy the process of slowing down with needle and thread in hand.  Once leaned the simple technique of rhythmical movement will open a world of endless pattern with hours of mindful stitching.  It is social, portable and satisfyingly creative – without the clamour of machines, hand quilting can be taken with you wherever you go!

Your ultimate aim will be even stitches. Don’t be put off by the teeny tiny stitched work of yesteryear, whether they be 1/4”, 1/8” or 1/16” your work will be perfect!  Firstly, we will stitch a sampler using different threads and needles and then you will have an opportunity to stitch a pattern included in the kit.

Our mini class runs for two and a half hours and the price includes a kit comprising a fat quarter of fabric, wadding and backing, a variety of threads and needles together with the pattern for the piece of work below.  You will have the use of a hoop during the class (which will be available to purchase if desired).  Just bring a thimble (necessary) and a small pair of scissors or snips.

You will take away the beginnings of a new adventure in patchwork and quilting and the start of a cushion, bag front, wall hanging or table centre.

Jump into the past and enjoy stepping back into a peaceful world before the need for speed.
