Hand-Sewn Patchwork Digital Class
This listing is for video-only access to this workshop. Please note that materials are not included but the FULL workshop (video + curated materials) can be found here.
Discover how gratifying hand sewing can be as we slow things down and create a unique wall hanging or crib-sized patchwork throw. Amanda Carye, the designer and writer behind Broadcloth Studio, shares her passion for this meditative craft as she walks us through each step of the quilt making process.
With 25 years of quilting experience, Amanda surprisingly didn’t own a sewing machine until about four years ago.“The lack of a sewing machine was quite an education!” she says. “Working at a slower speed and spending time with each piece drove home the mechanics of patchwork and would be my personal recommendation to anyone just taking up sewing.”
In this workshop, Amanda walks us through every aspect of hand quilting—from preparation and measuring to improv curves and quilt assembly. Along the way, she shares lots of tips for creating neat and tidy patchwork pieces, troubleshooting, and advice on incorporating a sewing machine if desired. She also demonstrates several different quilting design options to finish and customize our special patchwork blanket.
This workshop includes:
