Classes Starting today!

Foundation Piecing, machine quilting, winter wonderland, felting and getting a start on quilt art are all the classes beginning this week. Something for everyone to enjoy.


Firm Foundations by Jane Hall - 4 lessons - $40.00

Firm FoundationsStability, precision, speed, and versatility. What more could you ask of a technique? No wonder it has become a basic tool for us. Jane shows you how to piece on top, under pressed and with single templates. You will learn how to use the foundation as a stitching guide without actually sewing into it. This is a process class. You will get 21 different block patterns but there is no project. Skill level: beginner to advanced. It helps to have a basic familiarity with piecing and with your sewing machine. Rotary cutting is also an efficient way to work, but foundation piecing can be done with basic tools and can be sewn by hand, if you wish.

Winter Wonderland by Linda Schmidt - 4 lessons - $40.00

Winter WonderlandLearn how to make falling snow and just about anything that is covered with snow, including pine trees, rocks, bare trees, snowmen and snow angels. In the first three lessons, you will create a 17" x 22" scene based on a photo taken at Yosemite, then choose from three small bonus projects in Lesson Four. Linda will walk you through the project step by step, teaching you how to make paint and glitter give the appearance of snow. By the time you have finished the class, you will be ready to create your own original snow scene. Perfect for making personalized cards, ornaments or book covers, too! Level: You should be a confident user of your sewing machine and willing to try unusual non-sewing material and methods.

Whisper Felting by Lily Kerns - 4 lessons - $40.00

Whisper Felting
The felting process doesn't have to give you a thick pad of uniform denseness. The results can be light and supple. Felting offers quilters a way to embellish fabric with a wide variety of textures and patterns. By felting different materials together, you can change the color. Lily will show you how to combine fibers, yarns and fabric using several different hand and machine techniques. You will make a collection of samples and three small projects. Little actual sewing is required. All levels.
