A variety of easy-to-access pockets in vinyl, mesh, and quilted fabric can be customized to fit the tools you use and love. Sign up early for this FREE workshop. Pay only for the kit which includes your pattern and everything except your fabrics.

Laura Heine method Certified Instructor Cyn Wilde will teach us how to create beautiful fabric collages. For a successful workshop, Cyn suggests using a kit to make a Teeny Tiny pattern. If you already own a full-size pattern or kit, you may use that, but you will need to finish on your own. Kits are available at Quilter’s Cottage in Richmond, or at the Friday morning meeting.
This in-person workshop will fill up fast, so register early by emailing Meg at email@example.com. Members are $40, non-members are $50.
In-person workshop at Trini Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Road, Houston. 9 am – 4 pm.
Have you ever wanted to make a Mariner’s Compass block but were too intimidated? Not a fan of paper piecing or using tedious templates? You’ll love this class for learning how to make 16-point compass blocks in 16 different sizes using Robin Ruth Design’s rulers and strip-piecing method! Join Robin and learn all the compass basics for making either a Skinny Robin or Fat Robin mariner’s compass block.
Once you learn how to use Robin’s rulers and strip-piecing technique, you will be free to move on to one of the many patterns and projects made using this ruler system!
Students get to choose which kind of compass they will make - Skinny Robin (pictured below top) or Fat Robin (pictured below bottom). We will make an OctaCompass block and then finish the center and into a project ready square.
