Like-minded quilters are encouraged to get along to a Mystery Quilt Class in Wedderburn this February.

The Loddon Visitor Information Centre is organising the class at the centre for Sunday 25 February 2018. The class will be conducted by Michelle Henderson from Boort’s Brojayla Patches.

The centre is providing new creative workshops to invite more visitors to our region.

Mrs Henderson said the Mystery Quilt Class was a fun and relaxed day where people could work at their own pace.

“I have run many of these mystery classes over the years and have found people very much enjoy them.”

Participants for the mystery class are given a list of fabrics to purchase and cutting instructions to be completed before the class – all without having any idea of the pattern or look of the quilt they are making.

On the day of the class they are given clues or instructions one step at a time until the final result is revealed at the end of the day.

“The results are always really interesting to see how different combinations of fabric made in the same pattern look so unalike, yet good,” Mrs Henderson added.

“The biggest challenge is having no idea of the pattern when choosing fabrics, which I am happy to assist them with prior to the class.

“I aim to make sure everyone has completed at least part of each step so they are able to go on and complete the quilt at home.” 

This Mystery Quilt Class is aimed at intermediate level quilters; however a confident beginner will also be able to manage it successfully.

The cost of the class is $40, which includes the class, refreshments and lunch.

The class has a maximum of 15 participants and bookings are essential.
