CURRENT CLASSES SCHEDULED

Oklahoma Quiltworks Winter / Spring Sessions
January 1 – May 31, 2019

January Classes

Basic Quiltmaking

Instructor:  Toni Owens

Cost $65
#266234

This class is designed for the person who knows nothing about quilting, yet also provides helpful hints and tips for those looking to improve their present skills. We start right at the beginning by looking at Fabrics, Color and Notions, then moving on to the correct usage of the rotary cutter, rulers and how to master that quarter-inch seam used in quilt making. You only need to know how to sew a straight stitch.  The class specializes in individual attention and hands on training.

 

Beginning Hand Embroidery

Instructor:  Toni Owens
Friday, January 18, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Beginning Hand Piecing

Level:  Beginner
Instructor:  Gigi McEver
Tuesday, January 22, 2019, 9:30am – 12:00pm
Cost:  $25
#266236

Before we had sewing machines, we just used a needle & thread. While I don’t plan to ditch my sewing machine, I do still love to hand piece. It’s quiet. It’s portable. It allows wandering thoughts. It encourages conversation. It’s so very relaxing. Come learn a few basics with the classic nine-patch block. You’ll learn how to piece straight seams and match points. Trust me, it’s much easier to match points using a needle & thread than it is with a sewing machine. Hope to see you!

Have you heard the term “machine paper piecing” and wondered exactly what it was?  Have you seen those numbered patterns in books or magazines and wondered how to use them?  Have you seen the perfect quilt resulting from machine paper piecing and wondered if you could do that?  Then this class is for you!  This class will teach you how to paper piece and ensure that points are always perfect!

 

Beginner Hand Appliqué

In the class, you will learn how to make thin stems, smooth curves, sharp points, and circles and V’s. By the end of class, you will be looking for items to appliqué! This class is a great way to use up scraps and Charm Squares.

Instructor:  Gigi McEver
Friday, February 8, 2019, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm

Do you cringe at the thought of making a bias binding? Well, cringe no more. In this class you’ll learn how to make a “continuous” bias binding. It’s really quite simple. Bias bindings are perfect for curved edges and a bias stripe makes a dramatic finish to many quilts. You’ll make a “practice” binding out of a fat quarter. There should also be time to make the binding of your choice for your next quilting project. Hope to see you!

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.

#266251

What’s the first part of a much-used quilt to wear out? The binding, of course!

I can bind a queen size quilt in about 2 hours and so can you! Come learn my techniques and soon you’ll have professional-looking and durable bindings in a fraction of the time it takes to hand stitch one. This class is the perfect follow up to Basic Quiltmaking.
