About the event

Explore Indian Kantha stitching and find out how it can be used to decorate items for the home. Linda will demonstrate how to make a thin summer quilt reusing old house linens, then you will be guided in stitching your own elephant design pouch.

Learning how to use colourful Kantha stitches you will be able to continue this attractive technique at home. By recycling household items such as sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers we are helping reduce landfill and also make something warm and comforting. This versatile stitch is simple and perfect for those new to stitching. All materials are provided.
