"She looks for wool and flax, and works with her hands in delight. She is not afraid of the snow for her household, for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She makes coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies belts to the tradesmen. Strength and dignity are her clothing and she smiles at the future."  Proverbs 31:13, 21-22, 24-25 NASB

Lone Star Quilt

One of the most recognized of all quilt patterns, the Lone Star made the old fashioned way was difficult because of the bias-cut diamonds. Now you can make it without measuring any angles or using templates. You bring your own fabric. The kit includes the fusible backing and directions. This is a six hour class for students with some previous machine sewing and rotary cutting experience. Ages 12 and older.

Irish Chain Quilt

Want more of a challenge? The Irish chain quilt is for you. It looks impossible with its 1 inch squares; however, it is all done with strip piecing. This is an intermediate pattern, but can be tackled by a beginner who is not afraid of "nesting seams". You may bring your own fabric or purchase the kit. It includes fabric for the top. Batting and backing fabric are available at an additional cost. This is a seven hour class for students with some previous machine sewing and rotary cutting experience.  Ages 12 and older.

Drag-A-Fuzzy Rag Quilt or Easy Rag Quilt

Two different classes for two very fun and easy quilts using the quilt-as-you-go technique. Flannel is used to build this cute quilt that can be a baby quilt, a wall hanging, or a throw. Students will learn the basics of rag quilt piecing! Rotary cutting will be introduced. Ages 12 and older. Previous sewing experience required. 7 hour class (bring a sack lunch).

EASY BREEZY QUILT

If you have always wanted to learn to quilt, this is a great beginner's pattern. You will learn to rotary cut and machine piece the quilt top. Class time will not allow quilting to be done, but you can come back during the Open Sewing time on Tuesdays nights to finish your quilts with a reservation. This is a 6 hour class for ages 12 and older.

HEIRLOOM BABY BONNET

Working with fine batiste fabric, elegant cotton laces, and satin ribbons, students will learn to create this darling baby bonnet. French sewing by machine techniques will be taught that include lace insertion and pintucks. It is so much fun and the bonnet makes a wonderful baby shower gift that will be admired by all. This is a three hour class for students with some previous machine sewing experience. Limit four per class ages 12 and older.

Baby Quilt Class – Part I

If you are looking for a mother/daughter class, this is it! Mom makes a baby quilt or a small throw quilt and daughter makes a doll quilt. If the daughter is older, both can make the throw quilt. Students will learn how to use a rotary cutter and how to piece the top. It is a three week, two hours per week class. Ages 12 and older. Prerequisite: some previous sewing experience necessary since the class time will not allow for basic sewing instruction.

Baby Quilt Class – Part II

Learn how to sandwich the baby quilt top with the batting and the backing. Next step includes learning how to machine quilt it and add the binding. This is also a three week, two hours per week class.

The Joys of Quilting

 

Open Sewing Time

You may use this time to finish those UFO's hanging around your place (Un-finished objects), or make one of my projects, or even begin a new project Use my machines, enlist my help in figuring out the pattern, or just come to sew your projects where there is a machine already set up. Reserve your space ahead of time, so I'll know you're coming. Limit 4 per class. Bring your own supplies.
