Not certain how to embroider an ‘In The Hoop’ Design then join us in a class

 

 Thursday 1st                          Look and Learn Club                              from 10am

 

Our aim is to hold an informal and relaxed friendly meeting. We are hoping that ladies will bring along sewing items to show, and to hopefully inspire us all.

Everyone working here does enjoy these sessions and hope that you all do as well.  We will have our samples for the coming month’s classes to show and if time would just slow down we may even get the opportunity to sew for ourselves and show these items as well – no promises ...

If there is something new in the market place and we know about it, we will show it, or if we don’t know and you mention it we will endeavour to find out more for you.

If you are having a problem, chances are someone else had the same thing so please ask and hopefully we or someone at the meeting can help.

 

Afterwards stay around for morning tea/coffee.

 

Cost is a minimum of $2 which goes towards morning tea.

 

Wednesday mornings                    Sewing Group                       9.30 to 12 noon

 

This sewing group is where you come along with your projects and machines and sew

in a friendly atmosphere with others that have similar interests.

Be a beginner or more experienced all are welcome to come along and sew in a very friendly atmosphere.

Please note you will need a pattern as we do not do pattern drafting,

for beginners look for the easy patterns available from all major pattern suppliers.

We are here to help to adjust the pattern to fit you.

 

Tea/coffee/ water is provided.                                                        Cost $20.00 per class

            UFO’s (is short for Un Finished Objects).

 

The last two Fridays are a combined class so those wishing to still come along and complete their UFO’s can still do so.

 

 If there was a project that you missed or if you have a bag, table runner or quilt stashed away, and you are uncertain what or how to finish it, or just lost inspiration, then this is the day to come along and hopefully get it finished.

This is also a great class for anyone who has a project (i.e. Cot quilt, table-runner or quilt) that they particularly wish to make but need help in doing so or a beginner who just needs assistance in getting started.

Thursday 8th           Sharon’s ‘Westalee’ Block of the Month     9.30am to 2.30pm

 

Sharon Wyatt (Westalee Accredited Instructor) is continuing with the ‘Block of the month’.

Each block has a different quilting pattern which is a good way to get the best from your Westalee Ruler starter pack and using the skills, you’ve learned in Sharon’s beginner class, so you can now go forward to produce a beautiful sampler quilt, put together with the quilt as you go technique.

Sharon Wyatt will teach you tips and tricks with the rulers, so you can gain confidence in creating free motion magic for all your quilts.

 

Cost $65.00 per class plus equipment/fabrics

 

 

Monday 12th and 26th Sewing for Someone                                1pm to 4pm

 

                        Our popular charity sewing sessions are still popular. The sewing is not difficult, and it is a fun way to learn patchwork and at the same time help make a young child’s life a little better.

If you are a beginner or more experienced, it doesn’t matter - all are welcome. All you need to bring is your sewing machine, threads, pins and scissors then we will supply the rest.

We are making small ‘cuddle’ quilts for The Patricia Giles Centre and for Foster Kids WA.

Thursday 22nd              In the Hoop Machine Embroidery                    9.30am to 1.30pm

Faye and Michelle

           

Today we are using a design from Kreative Kiwi – the Note Book Cover.

Create yourself a personalized notebook cover using your favorite fabrics or a great way to use up any scraps. These covers will fit a standard A5 or A6 notebook (we got ours from Red Dot).

This is an easy stitch out but best of all is that there is no hand sewing required. The complete item is all machined together in your embroidery hoop.

Simply bring your machine and USB stick or similar transfer tool.

For those not able to attend please contact us about obtaining the design.

You will need to supply your own threads and fabrics etc.

           

Cost $25.00 per class plus design and fabrics

Tuesday 27th                Meet Your Overlocker                    9.30am to 12 noon

Faye

          Are you scared of your overlocker? Well then, this class is designed for you.

Don’t know which is the upper looper or the lower looper? Scared of tensions or just don’t know how to thread it. Learn how to treat your overlocker as a friend not an enemy.

            We will explain the mystery of your overlocker. We will go through the 2 ways of threading, tensions, normal 4 and 3 thread over-locking, roll hems and explain all about differential feed.

Friday 30th                     Raw Edge Applique Christmas Tree Wall hanging         

9.30am to 1.30pm

Faye and Michelle

Christmas is coming so we are creating a Christmas tree wall hanging.  Raw edge applique and a straight stitch is used. This tree is slightly wonky (which is what we wanted) and after time the raw edges will start to fray which is also the effect we are after.  We still used vliesofix to hold the strips in place and added a few folded flying geese for a bit of texture.     

           

Cost $25.00 per class plus fabrics

December 2018

 

Thursday 6th                          Look and Learn Club                              from 10am

 

This will be our last Look and Learn Club for 2018 and we look forward to seeing you and your creations in February 2019.

 

Hard to believe another year has passed with all its ups and downs. We have had Anniversaries (Baby lock 50 years in Australia and Bernina 125 years with the 4th generation owner visiting Perth). New machines and overlockers were released and who knows what next year will bring. We wish to thank all those who have supported us here throughout the year no matter how large or small it all adds up – it’s because of you that we are still here.

            Here’s hoping that everyone has a wonderful, happy and safe Christmas and that 2019 is full of good health and happiness and not to forget plenty of sewing time.

 

Afterwards stay around for morning tea/coffee.

 

Cost is a minimum of $2 which goes towards morning tea.

CLASS BOOKINGS and REFUNDS:

This is a problem for all organisations which runs classes. Universities and TAFE colleges have the rule that your place is not reserved until fees have been paid in full. Ocean Keys Sewing Centre will accept a minimum deposit of 50% to reserve your place with the balance to be paid on the day.

If you must cancel and do so at least 4 days prior to the class starting, we will issue a store credit less a $5.00 cancellation fee. This gives us time to fill your place if possible and to organise teachers and staff rosters. We require a minimum of 3 people per class.

Ocean Keys Sewing Centre has the right to cancel classes 48hrs prior to commencement if below the minimum number of students and a full refund shall be issued.

Please book early to avoid disappointment.

When you have registered for your class a list of requirements shall be given or emailed when available.

Would you or a friend like to receive this class list by e-mail? Simply e-mail your address to oceankeyssewing@bigpond.com.au. Simply ask to be placed
