Creative Zone for 10-18's
Expertise Events who run the fantastic Craft and Quilt Fairs around Australia and New Zealand have started a new program to encourage 10-18 year olds to start sewing and crafting. We thought that it was a great idea and joined the program.
I did a test run at the Sydney show in June with our Wonky Squares project, and thanks to that successful outing Gai will now be running Wonky Squares classes at other shows. In some locations the lucky class participants will be constructing their cushion by machine, using PFAFF and Husqvana machines. At other locations, students will be introduced to the joys and portability of hand piecing. Over in the download section on the sidebar I've included an info sheet from Expertise with more details about the Creative Zone classes.
If you'll be attending one of the shows with a young friend or relative let them experience your hobby first hand by joining one of the great Creative Zone classes.
