  • Beginning Baltimore Album Quilt
    (Prerequisite: Confident beginner to advanced appliqué skill)
    Join us for a series of 6 classes that will introduce the fine art of Baltimore Album Quilts. Each lesson presents an understanding of Baltimore Album quilts and their design that was so popular in the mid 1800's. Each lesson also teaches one complete block, and then enriches that basic lesson with additional patterns for more practice. As you complete a block each month your journey toward producing your own quilt will be well on its way. The journey will take you from papercuts to wreaths and lyres.

  • Prepared Edge Applique
    Always wanted to applique? Tried the traditional needle turn method, but couldn’t quite get the hang of it? This class may be just the thing for you. Learn this prepared edge freezer paper method. Learn to trace, cut and use freezer paper templates for perfect results, and to use a travel iron, stiletto or tweezer to turn the edges. Then place the motifs on the background without pins or basting stitches, no clipping or turning while sewing. Only concentrate on the stitches.
    In this 2-day class you will start, but not necessarily finish, a basket of flowers which includes all the most used tricks and techniques.
    This is an awesome method but it does require some tools you may not already own.
    Hope to see you in class!
    Fri., Sept. 18 & 25 (10am-2pm); min. 4/max. 12
