AccuQuilt with Kaye Friday, Saturday, Sunday March 22-23-24

Time to sign up for an amazing spring workshop/retreat with Kaye England!

AccuQuilt & Rulers are the PERFECT COMBINATION for quilters!

Two fun learning-filled days with Kaye during this retreat-style event and a third day to continue on with your project.

Hands-on learning each day as well as 3 daily demos on the following topics:

  • Super accurate block construction including how to "set up" your machine stitch length, presser foot and so forth for best results.
  • When and how to press blocks/finished quilts properly
  • How to make side setting triangles that fit Sashing solutions - and make sure they come out straight
  • How to square up a quilt before quilting, batting tips
  • How to apply the perfect binding by machine (or by hand)

Additionally every attendee will receive a pack of traditional style fabrics mostly in shades of blues, reds and creams to make 12 - 9-inch blocks using mainly our AccuQuilt cutters (no need to bring yours and if you do not already have one, this is a great time to check it out).

We will be giving you a finishing pattern using sashing and side set triangles as well. Lessons will cover all the "how to" however these blocks are yours to do whatever you want.

Lunches will be on your own - you may bring your lunch or there are many eating establishments within walking distance to choose from. Afternoon snacks will be provided.

Sewing times will be from 9 am to 8 pm on both days; Sunday you can sew from 9 to 3 pm.

We have lots of other goodies and fun things planned as well. This is a bit different this year so if it is your 8th PNQS retreat or your first with Kaye, you will love it!

Kaye has so much quilting/piecing knowledge and time saving tips to share with you, this will easily pay for itself quickly as you become more proficient, accurate and fast making projects.

This is also wonderful if you have difficulty cutting due to arthritis or pain in your hands. Less time spent cutting = more time spent sewing!

Sleep in your own bed or choose from the many hotels in our area.

$199 early bird price - limited to 12 (lucky) attendees - sign up soon!
