Curves, Curves, Curves

May 9, 2020

9.30 - 15.30 (6 Hours)

You know the basics and now want something more challenging to sew like curves but are a little intimidated? Don’t worry. We will take away your fear and show you how to sew circles with confidence and ease without puckers. You will learn how to cut patches for a Drunkard’s Patch block with minimal waste, how to insert a circle and how to freestyle cut curves. Handouts and a few curved rulers will be available for purchase in class.

Quilt Binding

May 10, 2020

9.30 - 14.30 (5 Hours)

Your quilt is quilted and now it’s time to finish it up! We will attach continuous, double folded (French) binding completely with the sewing machine to the front and back. As an alternative you can close the back by hand. Learn all of the secret tips and tricks on how to do this successfully, get nice, sharp corners and an even sewing line. Different types of binding will be shown in class for you to make samples for reference. A great class to refresh your binding skills.

Foundation Paper Piecing

May 11, 2020

9.30 - 13.30 (4 Hours)

Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is a unique sewing technique where you sew directly on paper to create quilt blocks. The paper is then removed after the block is completed. We will walk you through the FPP process from beginning to end and include topics such as using directional fabric and fussy cutting patches for all
shapes. We will also take a look at different types of foundation piecing such as paperless and templates with and without seam allowance.
