Quilting and Sewing Classes


You can still join in! This year's block of the month is going to be both spectacular and calming, all at the same time. We're going to work in batiks, mainly light-turquoise blues, with a bit of green and purple thrown in. We'll work over 7 months, making 7 different blocks, and you'll receive the fabrics and directions for the grouping of those blocks each month. In other words, you'll be making between 4 and 8 blocks per session. Note that you'll need to sign up in person to pick up your packets. Price: $150, which is the price for the entire quilt top that measures 84" square. (Borders, backing, and binding can be purchased separately for 20% off at the end of the year.) Supplies: Come at your chosen time to pick up your packets with curbside service each month. Saturdays, Feb. 1, Mar. 14, May 9, June 6, July 11, Aug. 1, Sept. 26, and Dec. 12, all at 10:00 a.m. OR Mondays, Feb. 3, Mar. 16, May 11, June 8, July 13, Aug. 3, Sept. 28, and Dec. 14, your choice of 10:00 a.m., 12:15 p.m., or 5:30 p.m. Teacher: Cynthia Spencer To sign up, give us a call at 814-238-4151, or make an appointment and stop by!

Cost: $ 150.00
Cynthia spent many hours refining a mask that would stay up, was easy to get on and off (the secret is Velcro!), and would reduce the fogging of glasses. This class will use Cynthia's Favorite Mask pattern. To take the class, you must know how to use your sewing machine and must have sewn at least one project. If you have sewn only simple masks up to now, this one would be a good next step. (And if you're interested in sewing garments, there are a few garment techniques in this pattern.) The Zoom class will be October 5 and 12, from 6-8 p.m. Cost: $35 plus supplies. Supplies: Cynthia's Favorite Mask pattern, available as a download here, a quarter yard of batik fabric, a quarter yard of a print fabric, and a quarter yard of fusible interfacing. Two inches of Velcro, and a nose wire. All of these are available at Stitch Your Art Out. Make a shopping appointment here!

Cost: $ 35.00
Our wonderful teacher Mary Beth Lemmons 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 (we recommend the 2" ones to start), thread, needle, and coordinated scraps of fabric. The class will be on Zoom on Monday, Nov. 16, from 6-8 p.m.

Cost: $ 28.00
Flying geese seem as though they shouldn't be a problem. You're just sewing a few triangles together! But that's exactly the problem. Triangles love to stretch. This ruler solves it all. You'll have accurate geese, and they'll fly happily across your quilt! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Creative Grids flying geese ruler (we have them for sale at the shop), scraps of fabrics. Time: The class will be held on Zoom, Thursday night, Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m.

Cost: $ 28.00
You've learned a little about quilting, and now it's time to up the game. We'll learn how to cut layers of fabric, to work with triangles, and to match at corners. Note that we will not be quilting this project in the class--just piecing the top. Cost: $38 plus supplies. Supplies: We'll be using the 3-in-1 quilt pattern, which you can get either at the shop or online here. You can make this pattern in any size you'd like. The pattern will give you yardages; we'll help you with color combos! Time: Tuesdays, Sept. 29 and Oct. 6, on Zoom from 6-8 p.m.

Cost: $ 35.00
