GET TOGETHER, GET SCHOOLED & SUPPLY YOUR HABIT: crafty action at the workroom

Karyn from the workroom wrote to share news about all of the quilt and fabric related action upcoming at her space. I can personally attest to the awesomeness of the quilt sampler class - I am at week five and loving the relaxed vibe, great instruction, tea on tap, and of course access to the best fabric bolts in town....

Quilt-love is growing at the workroom. Our next round of classes is posted on our website and includes the intensive 10 week Quilt Sampler class, Patchwork Table Runner, Quilt-as-you-go Tote Bag and the addictive English Paper Piecing. Of course, there are lots of non-quilting classes like Pencil Skirt, Easy Alterations and Hidden Tab Curtains.

This Sunday we've got two special events happening side by side that you won't want to miss...

QUILT SUNDAY - FREE
Sunday February 24, 1 - 3pm
@ the workroom
1340 Queen Street West

Calling all patchworkers and quilters! Join us for a monthly gathering to share our love of all things quilty and to ogle each others' projects (and fabrics). This is a great opportunity to bring out those unfinished objects (UFO's) you've been meaning to work on.

Quilt Sunday is the last Sunday of the month.

BONUS EVENT: CRAFT MATERIALS SWAP, 3:30 - 5pm
Brought to you by the workroom and City of Craft...

Start your spring cleaning early! Craft supplies of many sorts are welcome, but for this first swap, we have a sense that fibrous stuff will take centre stage (fabric, yarn, textiles...). It's also a give what you can, take what you need kind of set-up so don't worry if your contributions are low. We have a bunch of fabric graciously given to us by Laura-Jean at Fresh Baked Goods that will surely get the wheels rolling.

Leftovers go to local charity groups.

De-stash, re-stash and mingle. What fun!
