Quilting and Sewing


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 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, stop by between 10 and 5:30, Monday through Saturday.

Cost: $ 150.00
You've been doing free-motion quilting, but you're curious about the new FMQ rulers you've been seeing. You're not quite sure how to get started. No worries! Joan and Cynthia have teamed up to help you. You must already know how to do free-motion quilting to take this class. Price: $28 Supplies: You can buy the Slim and Archie rulers at the store, and you'll need to get those plus the foot for your particular machine ahead of time. You can get the more generic Westalee ruler foot, or you can check with your dealer to get a specific FMQ ruler foot. (The Bernina foot is a 72 foot.) Be sure you've ordered a foot and the rulers by the end of March so that you have them in time for the class. Machingers gloves are required. A slip-slide for the bed of your machine is optional but highly recommended. You need a wash-out blue pen. Bring about 5 quilt sandwiches with contrasting, good-quality thread in several colors or weights. (Sometimes it helps to put one brand in the bobbin and another in the top.) Fresh needles. Monday, May 4, 6-9 p.m. Teacher: Joan Curley. Click the class name above to sign up online--or call us (814-238-4151) or stop by between 10 and 5:30, Monday through Saturday.

Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous quarter-inch seam (whatever that is!). Price: $42 Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order (you may borrow ours, but you should have one available at home for homework). You'll also need the placemat pattern and all the fixin's! 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, and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy and easy to use. Fridays, Feb. 21 (first day was cancelled because of snow; we will choose a second time that works for all in class on the 21st), 1-4 p.m., OR Mondays, April 20 & 27, 9-noon, OR Wednesdays, April 22 & 29, 6-9 p.m. Teacher: Various teachers.

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; Patricia will show you just what to do. Price: $28 Supplies: Bring along some practice fat-quarter quilt sandwiches, either plain fabrics or quilts you're willing to experiment on. Be sure you have a working walking foot for your machine.
