423 exhibitors from 45 countries present round 16.000 trade fair visitors their latest innvoations, trends and product lines.

Rosetta – Constructing a Center Motif

(2 or 3 hours, hands-on, longarm machine)

At times, our projects require unique motifs to be quilted in certain areas with more less specific dimensions – e.g. a center medallion or a repetitive motif for an Irish Chain or Double Wedding Ring top. And ever so often you don‘t find a suitable template or stencil in your stash.
In this class you will learn how to use rulers, a few reference lines and your imagination to easily construct simple or more complex, larger or smaller center motifs that are exactly what you have been looking for for a given quilting project.

Mandala – Painting with Needle and Thread

(2 or 3 hours, hands-on longarm machine)

Similar to a page from a coloring book, each student will be provided with a quilt sandwich that will have the main lines of our mandala project pre-quilted using tone-on-tone thread.

Following your heart‘s desire, you will add more quilting lines, motifs and patterns in class (whether you stick with the reference drawing or not – that‘s completely up to you!). And finally, you will fill the spaces you have created with (thread) colors. It‘s the goal of the class that you dive in, play with and enjoy the large variety or different threads provided!
