What you'll learn in this quilting class:

Learn the entire quilt-making process in this 5 hour class, and leave with a completed work of art for your wall. Students will learn to hand piece a 6x6" quilt top, baste, hand quilt, sew a border, and then secure that quilt to a frame. (frames provided)

The entire process will be done with a needle and thread, no sewing machines required. In January 2018, instructor Heidi Parkes made one of these 6x6" stretched canvas style quilts each day. Students will be encourage to try a variety of sewing techniques to make their quilt top, and will make their own completely unique "soft painting".

Tools/Materials to be provided:
  • milliners needles
  • 6x6" wooden frame
  • staples and staplegun
  • a 6x6" square of cotton batting
  • quilting zine
Tools/Materials needed:
  • A thimble that fits your dominant hand's ring finger. (I like the clover metal tip, with silicon around the finger, or a handmade leather thimble)
  • some fabric scraps for sewing your quilt top.
  • strips of fabric for the border. 2 at 3x6" 2 at 3x12"
  • optional: a small (4-6") embroidery hoop, and an 8" embroidery hoop.
  • minimum, one spool of pearl cotton, size 8; or one spool of crochet thread, size 10. In a color you like.
  • optional: a rubber gripper to help pull the thread through
    (a loose disk, or a gripper fitted to your finger)
Cafe, lunch and apertifs served.
