You will be arranging your work on a piece of design wall flannel that you will simply roll up at the end of the workshop, ready to take home to complete your project. No sewing will be done on the day. Kaffe and Brandon will take you through the same process they use for designing their quilts, starting with some core fabrics of your own and exploring further possibilities with the help of Kaffe and Brandon and an on-site pop-up shop.
