Class Opportunity!

Irish Quilt and Design

Double Wedding Ring

Emer Fahy

2-day Workshop

October 31st & November 1st

This beautiful old pattern is always a favourite.  It’s been around in various styles for a long time, but we will explore the wide (maybe unlimited!) possibilities of this pattern.   We will work on effects based on colour placement in the rings, the design possibilities for variations in the background, and structural variations in the rings themselves.  We will also learn how to draft your own pattern or variation in any size.  We will try a few possible techniques for stitching the pattern – and of course, we will actually make a sample set of rings!

You will have everything you need to design and make your own Double Wedding Ring project in any size and for any purpose – quilt, wall-hanging, table-runner, clothing, what ever your imagination can come up with!

Classes include Tea, Coffee, Snacks anytime, and Emer’s famous lunches.

We gather from 9.30 for tea and set-up, so that we can start at 10.00

We break at 5.00pm, but people are always welcome to stay on and sew.

Workshop €190
