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 all the supplies at the shop! Tuesday, Oct. 12, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
We've noticed you've got the hexagons down pat--so it's time to get creative! You can make all kinds of shapes with paper piecing, and use curves. Dig into more advanced English paper piecing, with its kaleidoscope effects that are so popular right now. Mary Beth is an expert, and she'll make it easy for you. Tuesday, Oct. 26 & Nov. 2, 6-8 p.m. on Zoom. Supplies: The book, Flossie Teacakes' Guide to English Paper Piecing (we have it at the shop), thread, small sharp scissors, Sewline glue pen, size 11 straw needles, either matching thread or beige/gray thread, and coordinated scraps of fabric or charm packs. We have all the supplies at the shop!

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.

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. Tuesday, Nov. 23, from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 28.00
One-block wonders are fabrics that are cut in layers so that they kaleidoscope as hexagons. The first night, we'll cut out the fabric and talk about how to sew the hexagons. The second night, we'll look at final layouts before you sew them down. Wednesdays, Oct. 13 and Dec. 8. $38. Supplies: Talk to Cynthia before the class. You?ll need a large-scale print; buy 6 repeats of it. You?ll need a Creative Grids 60-degree triangle ruler. You?ll need flat-head flower pins. And you?ll need basic sewing supplies. Some flannel or batting is highly recommended to "stick" your pieces down and create the layout.

Cost: $ 38.00
Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching at the corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous scant quarter-inch seam (whatever that is!). Cost: $42 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order. You'll also need the pattern and all the fixin's! Make an appointment to stop by at least a few days before the class begins so we can help you pick out your fabric and notions. We suggest our Creative Grids rulers, which are easy to use with a non-slip grip and visible markings; our Creative Grids mats, which are the best cutting mats in the whole wide world; and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy, safe, and easy to use. Good tools and fabrics really do matter--they increase happiness and keep frustration low! Oct. 11, 20, and Nov. 1, from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 42.00
