Learn the ins and outs of quilting by starting at the beginning. This is a lecture/demo/hands-on combination class for beginners and others who want to master the fundamentals. We’ll cover fabric, pressing, cutting, block building and a tiny bit of quilt math. Then we’ll move on to design and talk through color and value. A few more basics will include seam allowance, stitch-and-flip, triangles and acrylic templates. A firm foundation is always a great place to start. Come and join us for this relaxed time of learning.
One yard of good quality quilt-weight cotton fabric
45mm rotary cutter with a sharp blade
Pen and paper for taking notes
*Above supplies available for purchase in-store
A sewing machine is not needed for this class, but you’ll probably want one if you begin to create quilts, unless you intend to make quilts by hand.
