Venus Quilt Class

Take the fear out of curved piecing by only completing short (small) curves to build your blocks. We will be cutting out fabric with a template and putting square blocks together using a curved piecing technique to make rows and finish a quilt top.

Collage Sit & Sew

Do you need designated time and space to work on your collage quilts? Bring your collage projects you are working on and treat yourself uninterrupted work time. The $5 registration fee will be applied to any purchases made that day. THE REGISTRATION FEE IS NON TRANSFERABLE AND NON REFUNDABLE.

Layering (Making a Portrait using Multiple Layers of Fabric)

Use 3 - 5 fat quarters to create a detailed portrait of animals or humans depending on the pattern that you choose. I have some extremely easy patterns and a few that are more difficult. I always encourage students to select the easy or medium difficulty patterns since you are learning the technique. (I will have patterns for sale if you wish to do an extra project at home.)
