Machine Quilters Bootcamp 2018 will take place at Spinnerin, Benoni between 10 and 15 September.
Let the countdown begin for Machine Quilters Bootcamp 2018!!!
We have everything Machine Quilting related for Longarm and Domestic machine quilters.
You have the unique opportunity this year to be taught by some tremendous teachers! HandiQuilter Ambassador Kimmy Brunner is joining us from the USA. Kimmy has taught thousands of students all around the world and is no stranger to South Africa. You have the amazing opportunity to take hands on classes that Kimmy will be teaching later in the year at Houston! Telene Jeffrey is back again to bring fun and inspiration to your week. Jane Renton joins us from Estcourt, Natal, with a wealth of information. Sandy Hirstmakes her debut teaching her signature style quilting. Claire Wallace completes the teaching team with her perfected proficiency and sensibility!
We have the perfect solution for all domestic machine quilters! One classroom will be fully equipped with super, HandiQuilter Sweet Sixteen sit-downs. This machine has more work space than a domestic machine, but is easier to use and all material taught in the classes can easily be applied to your machine at home.
Our second classroom will have a variety of HandiQuilter Longarm machines. All owners of longarm or midarm machines, regardless of the brand, will benefit from attending these classes.
These two rooms are for hands on classes, perfect for all skill levels from beginners to advanced. It won’t take you long to get the “Handi” of our HandiQuilter machines!
There are also Lecture demo classes applicable to all machine quilters. The patterns, techniques and tips remain the same whether you are a Longarm, mid arm or domestic machine quilter, so come and join these classes and expand your quilting horizons.
The time table of classes is available here for you to download as a pdf and print out…Timetable Pdf
Class bookings and payment can be done online again this year. Any class requirements will be automatically forwarded to you once payment has been processed.
Lunch will be available courtesy of the wonderful ladies at Spinnerin. No need to book this year but bring your purses so you don’t miss out on their delicious treats. The only exception is Tuesday afternoon where we will have a fun afternoon listening to Kimmy’s story Grandma’s Girl; a story of three quilters. There will be delicious eats included! Please book for this so we can cater accordingly! It’s going to be fun! We promise!
