Quilting for Beginners: A Small Handmade Quilt
2-Session Weekend Workshop
Saturday, October 5 and 12, 2019 - 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Hand stitching is a great way to reduce stress, and the portability of handwork projects makes them ideal take-alongs to fit into your day. Learn the basics of hand-stitched quilt-making by creating an 18-by-24 inch piece as a doll quilt or a wall hanging.
Learn the same piecing, applique, quilting, and finishing techniques used in larger quilts as you work on your small-scale project during this multi-session class. No sewing machine is needed in class; all work can be done by hand. Use your machine to continue work between classes if you choose.
A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session.
