Machine Quilting for Beginners
Teacher:  Ann Shaw 

When:  Friday, July 27th
Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Cost:  $60.00  

This is a method class to teach you how to do the quilting on your home machine.  You need a reliable machine with a walking foot and a darning foot that are made for it (the generic ones tend not to work very well).  We do a LOT of talking about the “how’s” and then play with a practice piece that is included in the class price.  This is definitely a ‘must’ class.  You’ll definitely get some tips that will make your job easier, making the cost of the class worthwhile!

Paper Pieced Log Cabin
When: Wednesday, August 1st
Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Cost: $35.00

Paper piecing leads to perfect piecing, allowing you to make more intricate designs

out of ordinary traditional blocks. This paper pieced log cabin block has 21 pieces in a 7″ block! You just wouldn’t be able to be accurate enough if you were not paper piecing it! The log cabin can be substituted for Pineapple, or Twisted Log Cabin, the method is exactly the same. Your color choices can be scrappy or controlled, either looks great! A pieced border completes the look.
