Just Hands-On Tv Star Valerie Nesbitt first retreat in Bridlington

Valerie Nesbitt, the presenter and brains behind Just Hands-On TV, has made it to Bridlington!

This three day retreat commenced with a day working on Thangles. Thangles are an easy way of producing half square triangles from an oblong.

The thangles paper was added to two strips of fabric and stitched on the dashed lines then cut on the solid lines.

Here are some of Val's quilts

We enjoyed a super three days with Valerie and so much so that we have invited her back to teach again next year.  The dates will be announced shortly on our website here -  
You can also find details of our other workshops and retreats & of course our longarm quilting service.

Today we also have had a delivery of new quilt backing fabrics from Moda... I have put them in the online store!quilt-backs/cyhn
