Quilting and Sewing Classes


This year's block of the month is made from Australian fabrics and batiks! It will give you a choice of making either a lap size (60" x 60") or a bed size (84" x 84"). IMPORTANT: Please read all the details in the newsletter. ALSO IMPORTANT: You can't sign up online anymore because of the way the system works, but if you call the shop, we can take care of adding you. The sign up here is for the 84" x 84" BED SIZE, with IN-STORE PICKUP (not mailed). You may either make an appointment to pick up, or do curbside pickup. Packets will be ready between 10:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. pickup on each Saturday listed. If a particular day doesn't work, just make an appointment to pick up at another time.

Cost: $ 190.00
The New York Beauty is one of Cynthia?s favorite blocks. Not only is it striking, but it?s the perfect way to learn paper piecing and to sew curves. It?s easier than it looks!

Date and Time: Wednesdays, Aug. 3 and 17, 6-8 p.m. Covid notes: This class will be held 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. Supplies: Sewing machine, recently cleaned and oiled, with a new needle (I recommend a Microtex #80/12); walking foot for your machine; three 12" x18" 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. Time: Thursday, Feb. 17, 6-8 p.m. on Zoom. Cost: $28 plus supplies.

Cost: $ 30.00
