Workshops Offered

Laura Rucker, Simple Sampler, Saturday, March 16

 

Laura loves Quilting!  Not so much when pieces don’t come together as planned.  There must be an easier way!

 

This class will start you on your way to making a smaller version (46”x46”, the burgundy and cream picture) of the “Simple Sampler” pattern (or you are welcome to make the full pattern size).   Making the five basic blocks in this pattern will give all levels of quilters opportunities to practice techniques for achieving accuracy, with less unsewing and frustration; saving precious time and enjoing the sewing process.

 

Laura will show you techniques for setting up your machine, using simple tools to achieve a perfect ¼” seam, matching seams and points, and different ways to construct a block.  Plus, if there is time, she will throw in a couple different blocks to add fun!

 

Students are asked to download and print the $6.99 pattern.  Information on how to do that is on the Supply LIst.

May 14, 2024 Jane Haworth, Pet Portrait

 

Make a pet portrait from your photo!!! Jane is a national and international instructor and will teach her awesome raw edge fabric collage technique using her tried and true tools and methods. 

 

In this class students will learn to enlarge a photo of a pet to about a 24” size design. Using a variety of fabrics we will trace and fussy cut these fabrics and apply in Jane's raw edge fabric collage technique. She will give guidance on stitching and finishing the quilt.

 

A close up of your pets face probably works best. She will give guidance on making the enlargement approx 200% before the class which will be used as the pattern (it's the first page of the supply list).

 

This class is full but we are accepting names for a waiting list.
