Event Description

March:

After all the cutting and stitching is done and you’ve assembled a beautiful quilt top, you add a layer of batting and you’ve picked out just the right backing material, now it’s time to finish your quilt.

You can stitch by hand or machine, or you can tie the layers together. Then it’s time to add the binding or turn the edge and stitch. Join me and I will walk you through several methods of finishing your quilts.

Suggested Materials:

  • Notebook/Pad of Paper
  • Pen/Pencil

Skill Level: Any


April:

This will be an overview of selecting fabric, batting and thread for your quilting projects. I will also show you a variety of materials you could use for wall hangings or other small quilted decorative items. You may already have some of the items in your sewing basket! Let’s explore some possibilities and get creative together. 

Suggested Materials:

  • Notebook/Pad of Paper
  • Pen/Pencil

Skill Level:  All Levels

  • Duration: 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

Meet the Host, Marlys

Marlys is an avid crafter and has been enjoying needle arts since the age of seven. With a family full of crafters she has learned crocheting, knitting, quilting, embroidery, and even some wood working techniques! Her background includes 30+ years of teaching crocheting to right- and left-handed students at all ability levels, while serving professionally as an administrative officer at a prominent university in Boston, MA. 

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
