It’s A Wrap – Fabric Baskets
One of our most popular classes! Learn this fun technique to make fabric wrapped clothesline baskets, bags, tablemats and more! Make an 8” bowl in class with only a half yard of fabric, and go home with it finished! You’ll look at fabrics in a whole new way. This is a great way to use up your stash. Your sewing machine must be able to zig-zag for this class. Choose from one of our two workshops. Saturday January 24th OR Saturday March 21st. 10:30 – 3:00. $30 plus book and materials.
Raw-Edge Fusible Applique Workshop
Find the fun in fusing during this workshop while making a beautiful art quilt wallhanging. We have dozens of patterns to choose from (some with kits available). Fusing technique will be the focus of this class and finishing techniques will be discussed. No machine required for this class. Saturday February 7th. 10:30-2:30. $25 plus pattern and materials.
KWIK-SEW (non quilting sewing)
Our beautiful cotton fabrics can be used for so much more than quilting! Browse the winter Kwik-Sew catalog to choose your pattern and learn the basics of everyday sewing. Patterns include garments, bags, home décor and more. Please choose your pattern by 1/24/09 to guarantee delivery for class (fabric requirements and more can be viewed on the Kwik-Sew website for patterns we don’t already carry). Wednesdays February 11, 18, 25. 1-4pm. $35 plus pattern and materials
Join in the fun of not knowing what you’re doing! Receive your fabric requirements and cutting directions at registration and then come to class ready to sew. We’ll help you with fabric selection (since we know what you’re making!). Bring a potluck dish to share (tell us what when you register). Saturday February 14th. 10-5. $40 includes pattern and complimentary ironing! Some pre-class homework required.
Log Cabin ABC’s
Using the great log cabin ruler, make the most accurate log cabin blocks ever! You’ll never strip piece a log cabin again. Great for beginners or anyone who wants more practice in accurate cutting. (Use a bali pop like our sample and have enough of each strip left to make an It’s A Wrap bowl!) This class teaches the technique only – make whatever you want with your practice blocks after class. Saturday February 21st. 10:30-3:30. $30 plus book, ruler and materials.
This fun new ruler makes “random” a little easier. Practice mixing colors and making fun and different blocks. This technique class shows you all the features of the ruler – make your blocks into something fun after class (ideas included with the ruler). Saturday March 7th. 10:30-3:30. $30 plus ruler set. Some pre-class homework required.
