My favorite gift to make is a trimmed tea towel. It’s really quite easy and the recipients enjoy something practical and personalized. You’ll learn how to prep your towels and fabrics and get pointers on assembly. We’ll also brainstorm on ways to personalize your towels.

IMPORTANT: You will need to pre-wash your fabric and towel before class.

Artsy Bowlies

Instructor: Kathy Spivey

Tuesday, March 12, 1:00pm – 4:30pm

Bowlies are 3-dimensional and are as unique as they are functional.  With a piece of heavy interfacing, fabric scraps, and a sewing machine, you will create a wonderful artistic bowl to use for utility or decor.  The pattern provides for a variety of sizes, shapes and application styles.  We will be making an 8” diameter, 2½” tall bowl with a beautiful applique flower in the bottom. In addition, you will learn a little bit of everything including how to draw circle, sew darts, sewing on 3-dimensional objects, applique and simple binding.  Come enjoy and let your inner artist have some fun!

Quilt Camp

WHAT IS A QUILT CAMP? If you have never attended, you may have no idea what we are talking about. It is designed to provide space to spread out for two days, without interruption from family members, household duties or anything else that gets in your way of productive sewing time. You may come with projects you need to complete or bring new projects you want to start. The only thing we don’t do at this camp is spend the night.

If you need help in certain areas or some advice to spur you on in the right direction, this is the place to be. You may simply want to be left alone to do your own thing and that is OK too. Lunch and dinner are provided Friday and Saturday.   Note:  The class room has been reserved on Thursday, March 28 and Thursday, May 30 so that campers can arrive early, set-up and sew all day if they choose.
