It's closer than you think. Monday, September 14, 2915 starting at 9AM and running to about 1:30/2pm.
Joy, who chatted to interested people at the evening of Bargello, is the instructor and has recommended the free pattern off Crafsy, My Lil Bargello by Lil Becks Corner. http://www.craftsy.com/project/view/my-lil-bargello-quilt/172860?_ct=iuqhsx-kdyluhiqb-huikbj-fhezusj&_ctp=172860 if you do not have a pattern. This pattern must be downloaded by you and brought to class. She has also mentioned that you can bring a pattern that you have and use that one instead. The important part is, you need a pattern! You must bring your pattern with you as photocopying of patterns is not allowed, nor is sharing.
Joy has also suggested that you go 'as far as you are comfortable with' cutting out your strips but there is time to do so on the day. Joy is very easy going and recognizes any day spent sewing, is a great day!
If you chose My Lil Bargello as a pattern, 14 different colours are used in it. Don't forget to bring your fabric. Remember, you do not need to purchase your fabric at Mrs P's. You are welcome to bring your own. If thinking of picking fabrics out that day, that will make you fall a bit behind but I will be there if you need to purchase something. Consider dropping in this week if not using your stash or looking for an extra fat quarter or two.
Other things to remember to bring are your sewing machine- in good working order, spare needles, thread and any else you think you might need. Mrs P's has tables for you, a few extension cords ( no surge protectors), irons and ironing boards.
On the Crafsty page of My Lil Bargello, the designer would recommend using precut 2 & 1/2 inch strips. I'm not sure if a many mixed roll would give enough length for the colours to repeat or if you would need a spare roll for a few extras.
Oh, nearly forgot, the cost for the class is $25/ person and you must register in advance. You will pay Joy on the day of the class.
This is one of Joy's Bargello quilt tops. It is not My Lil Bargello but another pattern.
I think that's all the little notes and papers that I have regarding this day all pulled together. Even if you have left your name at the shop, please let me know again if the time works for you and if you are coming to the class. Class size is limited to 8 and I will send an email back to those that are 'registering'.
