Helen Godden Classes And Trunk Show
Helen Godden

My Sewing Room is thrilled to be bringing Helen Godden to Calgary, all the way from Canberra, Australia!

Helen writes:

I am an Extreme Free-Motion-Machine-Quilter (EFMMQ).
I have been an artist all my life and came into quilting at age 38.
I am thrilled to have been awarded many times for my innovative quilts, both internationally and nationally and I am the Handi Quilter Ambassador for the Sweet Sixteen – my quilting machine, and I love my Sweetie!
I am so lucky to travel and teach and share my love of quilting far and wide. My goal is to “Educate and Inspire” all quilters as they launch into the world of possibilities that is Art Quilting.

Helen will be presenting a trunk show, plus two of her favourite classes for quilting on your domestic sewing machine: Quilt-A-Doodle-Do! and Crack Pots!



Friday, March 20, 2020
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Lunch included

Meet Foxy Loxy, Rooster, Tweetie and Hoot!

Choose one to trace onto fabric and stitch over the tracing with black thread. You will then learn loads of fun micro-quilting styles to fill the areas with.

Add some cream thread to give the background some texture.

Crack Pots

Crack Pots!

Saturday, Sunday, March 21, 22, 2020
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Lunch included

Create your own Crack Pots design!

Using paper silhouettes, you will play around, arranging potential pots, vases and bottles. Add a few elements of magic and you will have your design. Trace and paint your pots using Lumiere fabric paints.

On day two, you will learn and practice a ton of new free-motion quilting styles to challenge you and stretch your quilting repertoire. Then apply those designs as you quilt your Crack Pots designs.
