If your child wants to learn how to sew and you don’t have the time or knowledge, this class is for them!  We teach students the basic fundamentals of the sewing machine and how to sew a straight seam. (We use our sewing machines – please don’t bring yours).

Children choose their own fabric (front and backing) for this class. Fabrics for the front of the quilt will need to be purchased and cut before class. If you wish, a teacher will cut the fabric for you for a $5 fee. If we are cutting for you, we will need the fabric at least one week before class begins. If you do your own cutting, be sure you cut accurately for your kid’s success.

Hand piecing is a relaxing alternative to sewing by machine. It’s also portable, making it possible for you to sew anytime, anywhere. In this class we’ll cover the basics of piecing a quilt by hand. We’ll spend the first three days sewing by hand. If you wish you can continue at home, but it’s not required. On Thursday you’ll finish up your quilt top by machine and on Friday you’ll use the machine to quilt and bind your quilt. Please join us as we share this relaxing art!

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!
