Pinhole Quilting continues to develop and increase the depth and variety of education opportunities for Handi Quilter owners and other machine quilters during 2020.
Part of our plans is for Handi Quilter Ambassador and Educator Lynda Jackson to deliver two sets of workshops at the Pinhole Quilting Showroom near Pershore in 2020. Further details will be published in the New Year. The workshops will include quilt design, wholecloth quilting, feathers from beginner to advanced and trouble-shooting techniques.
By holding this training at our main showroom, we are excited that Lynda will be able to train many more quilters. She will be sharing many of the skills that have enabled her to become a world class quilter. With one person per machine and a wider range of machines, attendees will have lots of hands-on time, which increases the speed and quality of learning.
As a result of Lynda's move to her own home studio, it will no longer be possible for us to run workshops in Sheffield. While this may disappoint some of our more northerly customers it does mean that we can offer all our students the best facilities at our fully equipped premises, as well as access to all the Handi Quilter accessories and the full range of Glide thread.
In addition to Lynda's classes we will also be running a variety of technique workshops with Handi Quilter Educator Abigail Sheridan de Graaff , including Pro Stitcher workshops.
Further education and training will be available at the Festival of Quilts in August where we are delighted to be hosting a Handi Quilter classroom again. This year's special guest will be Angela Walters! Watch for announcements on the classes and Trunk Shows that will feature Angela, star of the Midnight Quilter, on the Festival of Quilts website and our website and newsletters.
Even more exciting events will be announced with Angela! We're still planning those and you'll see more details on Facebook, our website and newsletters.
And of course we also have our premier event in April 2020, our Longarm Quilt Academy 2020 in Solihull. This has already sold out, but we are looking forward to welcoming top teachers from all parts of the world and the learning that over 50 of our customers will enjoy. If you don't want to miss out on the next Academy, make sure you are on our mailing list!
We hope that you'll join us for one of these exciting events in the Pinhole Quilting calendar.
