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.

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!
