Hexies 2 Ways Workshop...Only 2 Spots Left

We still have 2 spots left for the Hexies 2 Ways Workshop on Saturday, January 12th beginning at 9 a.m. at Quiltmaker's Cottage in Hershey.  Please read below for complete information on the event and please RSVP via email ASAP (by this Saturday the 5th) to secure your spot for this awesome workshop!

Hexies 2 Ways Workshop
Presented by our very own Jill Stemple and Lois Bruno

Jill will be teaching the hand piecing method while Lois will be showing us how to machine piece hexi blocks.

Lois will be providing pre-cut hexagon packets (enough for 2 blocks) for the machine portion for $2.  Jill will be providing paper piecing kits for $5 which will include the paper foundations (115 hexagons, 35 half hexagons) and a template for cutting the hexagons for the hand piecing process.  Please bring $7.00 (exact change) to the workshop so that we can reimburse Jill and Lois for the kits.

Along with the funds for the kits, each participant will need to bring the following to the workshop:

Machine Piecing supplies:
        Sewing machine
        Basic Sewing supplies
        Neutral thread
        Good/comfortable seam ripper (This is used in the construction process. It's not that I am certain you will make mistakes.)

Paper Piecing Supplies:
       Fabric- great way to use up scraps, but FQs or yardage is also fine
       Basting thread- basically any thread, cheap and old is fine, it won't stay in the blocks
       Hand Quilting Thread in neutral or matching color
       Hand sewing needle
       Fabric Scissors

Beth will have hexi rulers for sale ($8.95) at the shop the day of the workshop.  These would be used to cut the hexies for machine piecing (Lois's method).  If you are looking to continue this method, this would be a great time to pick up the tool.

Looking forward to a great sewing day!  Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Meg, Jill, and Lois
