Quilting for Newbies in the New Year

Regular price $0.00 Save $0.00

WHO: Rebekah Werth hosts...

WHAT: A two-part beginning quilting workshop to kick off the new year!

WHERE: Gravel & Gold

WHEN: January 19th & January 26th both starting at 7:00pm.

WHY: We will meet for two nights for about two hours each night & learn the basics of quilt construction: how to plan a design with squares and rectangles, how to cut with a rotary cutter, how to pin, how to piece on a machine, how to press. The finished quilt will be a mini-quilt, or baby quilt sized. Quilters can complete their tops at home before the next session, sewing by hand or on a machine. Quilters should bring at least 1 yard each of 3 different fabrics that "go together" for them. One suggestion is to choose one light, one medium, and one dark fabric. In the second class we will cover how to make a quilt "sandwich," how to tie a quilt, and options for binding. Quilters will need to bring their completed tops, batting or an old blanket for the inside, a piece of fabric to use for the back, and a pack of safety pins. Quilters will get set up to complete their projects at home. It would be helpful if participants have experience sewing a straight line on a machine, but not necessary. This is a class for real beginners.

HOW: Sliding scale donation for instruction starting at $10. Please RSVP to em@gravelandgold.com so we can make space for you!
