** Joanne is available throughout the hours of 8am to 8pm, however the class room will be open from 8am to midnight Thursday to Sunday. No pre-cutting is required for this class. From experience of previous Workshops, we will be providing the pattern on the first day of class to ensure everyone is starting from the same point. The first morning you will be cutting and preparing your first section. Thereafter you will be guided as to what sections are coming up next and you will be able to plan the remainder of your cutting over the days of the workshop. We will however supply a Fabric requirements list and Fabric Key so you can prepare your fabrics. You are also welcome to request assistance if you need further help understanding these requirements before the workshop. It will help you to get your cutting done quicker and more accurately if you have prepared your Fabric Key prior.
Although you will cover all the techniques required to complete the quilt, it is unlikely you will complete the entire quilt top over the 5 days. We estimate that if you have worked consistently and efficiently over the 5 days, you may have the centre pieced prior to departure.
