Club 88 - (Cre8 8)

A continuing club for Rainbow Patchwork - 8 classes to make 8 projects.

This group will meet on the fourth Saturday of each month (and the previous Friday and Wednesday). Throughout the year 8 projects will be made.

Many techniques will be involved - foundation paper piecing, boro, pillows, bags with zips, fabric weaving. So it is a great way to try some different techniques on small items.

This photos shows some items - it will be updated as more items get made!

2018 planned projects are:
Some Woven Table mats (Feb Project)
A Table Runner using foundation paper piecing (Mar Project)
Microwave dish holders (May Project)
A Boro Purse  (June project)
Quilted Tote bags (July project)
Christmas in Table runner  (September Project)
Some Christmas gift ideas - (October Project)
An I spy project (November project)

All of these projects are or will be display at the shop and the kits will be exclusive to Club 88 until the class has been run. If you are interested in this club phone to book in or come into the shop to look at the items you will be making.

Each session will cost $40 to cover tuition and the pattern &/or materials required. The projects differ quite widely, sometimes the materials will be included with the pattern, other times you will need to purchase fabrics. There is also a $40 membership fee. This fee ensures your place in the monthly club meeting and can either be refunded or rolled over to 2018 if all 8 meetings are attended or paid for. If you cannot attend your usual meeting you it may be possible to slot into another club 88 group for that month, you will of course be receiving the pattern and any materials for the missed month. There are no specific make up lessons if you miss your session.
