APRIL 26, 2018 - Barbara Hollinger Curved Piecing by Machine and Hand 11-4; class fee $30/$40; kit fee $20

WE WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO HAVE MORE PEOPLE SIGN UP FOR THIS CLASS. IT PROMISES TO BE A BEAUTIFUL PIECE. This class focuses on the skill that you will find useful in piecing curves using a sewing machine. Hand piecing and free form construction will also be discussed. A class kit ($20.00 payable to the instructor) of pre-cut patches with enough blocks for a small wall hanging or table runner will be provided for each student. Each kit also includes templates which you can use at a later date. If you would like to piece more, if time allows, feel free to bring along a few fat quarters.

JUNE 28, 2018 - Kay Butler “Snowflake Blessing” 10-4; class fee $25/$35;fee for the pattern and a kit which includes background fabric and the 3 blues on the supply list is $20 (you supply the remaining supplies on the list). If you prefer to use your own fabric and colors the fee for the pattern alone is $10. This class focuses on hand applique using a back basting method. You’ll love the fact that this method eliminates the use of templates. To quote Kay, “Once I learned this method I rarely use any other.” BE SURE TO BRING A WATER SOLUBLE BLUE MARKER, A THIMBLE AND YOUR OTTE LIGHT IF YOU HAVE ONE.
