- Beginner Quiltmaking (Beginners only, please)
Learn basics of building a quilt -1/4" seam, rotary cutting,
machine piecing, sashing, border, binding, quilting. This class
is 4 lecture/demo sessions - you will not sew in class,
but there is homework. Three block patterns are given at each
of the first three classes, and the last class you'll receive
the setting pattern to complete a small wallhanging. A lot of
information is condensed into 4 classes, so it is necessary to
attend all classes. *The class is free, but $10 deposit
is required to hold your spot and will be refunded as a shop
credit (all 4 classes must be attended to receive credit).
