The kids are back to school, and it's time for you to learn some new skills, and sharpen some old ones. It's ME TIME again! Hurrah!! Think you know how to sew a straight line? Great! I'll help you take it a big step forward. You're a seasoned quilter with a few quilts behind you? Feel confident you'll leave the class a much better quilter as I introduce more advanced options for you!

Class I will include:

· How to choose, read and decipher a pattern

· How to choose and prepare your fabric for this quilt

· How to sew a consistent ¼” seam

· How to cut and sew a log cabin block accurately

· Pressing for accuracy

· How to read and use a ruler

· Squaring up blocks

· Options for designing your own colorway for a unique quilt

· Pattern, additional printed support materials, coloring & planning pages, etc.

 

Class II will cover the garden variation of the 8 pointed-star, and use the Two-Peaks-In-One ruler by Creative Grids. I will cover additional design layouts, borders, and tips and tricks for assembling your quilt.

These relaxed Saturday classes are perfect for beating back the Covid blues. If the weather is warm or mild, the large canopy door will be open to provide maximum airflow. It’s like sewing on your porch so you might want to include a hoodie with your supplies.

·  Work in a large, bright, open space at your own 6’ table with ample spacing between tables. One floor layout with restroom. Coffee, tea, water and packaged snacks provided.

  • 12 ½”Creative Grids square ruler for the session will be provided and available for sale
  • Ironing station will be set up with 2 irons or bring your own set up
  • Bring your own sewing machine, notions, rotary cutter, ruler and mat, and fabric to experiment with. Ask me for more details when you call to register.

  Register with your own small group for more fun! Future dates will be added.

 

Email me at julie@pinkdoxies.com for more information or to reserve your spot. Let’s get back to quilting!

Hmm, maybe you could Zoom near the end of the classes so we can see what people are up to and how it all looks. Sounds so very exciting.
