Classes & Events
During this 10-week series, you will have the opportunity to learn much about sewing while making a spectacular two piece robe and pajama botom set. Although you may not be a beginner, your instructor will presume you know absolutely nothing about sewing and present basic sewing principles plus numerous time saving short cuts involved with sewing. At the end of the series, if you have attended class and constructed your projects as presented, you will have learned the basic fundamentals of sewing and will have the ability to read, understand and construct most patterns. Techniques are scheduled and listed below.
Would you like to learn to quilt? Have you taken other classes but would like to hone your skills? Join us for this comprehensive 10-session class and learn everything from the dos and don’ts of fabric selection, the best ways to use your tools, perfecting your quarter-inch seam, setting your blocks, adding borders, quilting your quilt, and ultimately binding your masterpiece.
The Beginning Quilting Farm Sampler is a slightly different take on the original Beginning Quilting 10-Week Series. If you would like to learn to quilt, learning techniques from someone with more than 45+ years experience, or if you’ve dabbled with quilting and would like to hone your skills, the Beginning Quilting Farm Sampler just might be the series for you. During this comprehensive 10-session series expect to learn everything from fabric selection, the best tools to use, perfecting your quarter-inch seam, completing the project, and ultimately leaving with your finished quilt at the end of the tenth session.
Join Aileen for four weeks of cutting sewing, cutting again, sewing again, and finally, at the end of Session #4, completing your very own Let’s Spin quilt top. The Let’s Spin quilt appears to have pinwheel blocks spinning through the top, although pinwheel blocks are not actually constructed. Block placement creates the pinwheel blocks that spin throughout the quilt.
This series is structured for students who have already completed a 10-week Beginning Quilting series. Although instructions will be given and the Let’s Spin pattern is required, there will not be time to cover basic cutting and piecing techniques that are covered in the Beginning Quilting 10-Week series. Before attending Session #1, students will need to do some pre-cutting at home. As soon as you have registered for the series, you will be given a supply list and initial cutting instructions.
