Quilting and Sewing Classes


Our wonderful teacher Mary Beth loves nothing more than hand stitching. In this class, she'll show you how to make and attach hexagons. Make a mug mat?or a whole quilt! Hexies are a wonderful way to use scraps, or to feature those fun little motifs from a novelty fabric. No quilting experience needed! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Hexie papers (whatever size you wish), thread, needle, and coordinated scraps of fabric. We have the papers at the shop! Monday, Aug. 9, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
Learning free-motion quilting gives you so many options for finishing your quilts. If you take it step-by-step, it is fun to learn as well. You'll have plenty of ideas to take you beyond the class! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting book (we have it at the shop), sewing machine, darning foot (very important!), sewing machine instruction manual, three 18" quilt sandwiches made of muslin and cotton batting, contrasting 100% cotton thread such as Mettler or King Tut, unlined paper and pencil, Sew Slip, and Machingers. Feel free also to have ready a simple placemat made from your ugliest fabrics ready to practice quilting. Wednesday, July 7, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Landscape quilts are classics, and Cynthia will show you the ropes for making them! You can talk to her about your vision for the quilt, and she'll help you pull it off. Each of the quilts in this class will be different! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Have an inspirational photo. If you don't have one of your own, talk to Cynthia. Try to find a photo that has mostly horizontal lines, like the one pictured here. Have scraps of material in landscape colors, along with basic sewing supplies and your machine. Batiks work particularly well. You'll need fabric glue, and then we'll sew the fabrics down with a machine. Make an appointment to pick up supplies! You?ll need the book Accidental Landscapes, which we have at the shop. Tuesday, May 11, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
The log cabin is one of the oldest and most beautiful blocks. It used to be done with foundation piecing, but today, we have rulers that make quick work of it! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Bring in scraps of light and dark fabrics. You'll also need to buy the Creative Grids log-cabin ruler (6- or 12-inch size), which you can get at the shop. You'll need basic sewing supplies and your machine. Wednesday, June 23, 6-8 PM OR Tuesday, Aug. 3, 6-8 p.m., both on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
This classic block looks hard, but the paper piecing actually makes it easy. If you've made a few quilting projects, you can do this class! Cost: $38 plus supplies. Supplies: Pattern, and fabric as shown on the pattern. Bring along basic sewing supplies and a machine. Tuesdays, Aug. 24 & 31, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Let's go beyond the X-across squares! Learn to use your walking foot to its best advantage to quilt your pieces. Squiggles, circles, and lines are all fun ways to quilt; Cynthia will show you just what to do. Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Sewing machine, recently cleaned and oiled, with a new needle (I recommend a Microtex #80/12); walking foot for your machine; three 12?18" quilt sandwiches?cotton fabric on the top and bottom (muslin is a terrific choice), cotton batting in the middle, and basted together in the way you prefer (e.g., pins or spray-basted); a small project on which to practice quilting with your walking foot (e.g., a placemat, table runner, or wall hanging), basted and ready to quilt; 50 weight cotton thread in a color that contrasts with your fabric sandwiches; 1" blue painter?s tape; small ruler such as a hem gauge; basic sewing supplies; and Jacquie Gering?s book Walk: Master Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot, which you can get at the shop.
