Quilting Basics Workshop
Whether you’ve always wanted to learn to quilt or you love to quilt, this workshop is for you. For beginners, this class is a great way to practice hands on and build your skills before taking on your own quilt project. Lucy and Sue will guide you through accurate rotary cutting, seaming, pinning and pressing using the strip piecing techniques.
Seasoned quilters are welcome to show off their skills with any design. Experiment with a landscape or scene design. Or practice an advanced blocking pattern that you’ve been wanting to try.
We will be making chair cushions for use in the Fabric Arts area and is open to any quilting skill level. This class is the first in a series of quilt blocking classes.
Sewing machines, irons and rotary tools will be available for shared use. All other materials are provided. Basic machine knowledge and sewing a straight line is a plus.
