Once I get through a very busy fall, I'll be looking forward to teaching the following classes at Quilters Loft Company in Mooresville. As soon as we have prices and supply lists, I will post them here.
Beginning Machine Quilting
Wednesday, December 12, 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If you are a beginning quilter who wants to learn how to machine quilt your tops, this is the class for you. You'll learn the basics of how to prepare the quilt sandwich by layering and basting, how to free-motion quilt several motifs, and lots of tips to ensure good results. Pfaff sewing machines for this class will be provided by Quilters Loft Company, so even if you don't have a machine that can do free-motion quilting, you can learn more in class before deciding if it is your cup of tea.
Tuesday, January 15, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This is a freemotion machine embroidery class for those who want to learn how to “paint” with thread. Working on a dragonfly design (see photo below), you'll learn about stabilizers, thread choices, and how to adapt a design from a photo or copyright-free clipart. Pfaff sewing machines will be provided by Quilters Loft Company.
Creative Surface Design Workshop
Saturday, January 26
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Want to learn more about some of the exciting new materials you can use in (or on) your quilts? Come and play with Lumiere and Dye-na-Flow fabric paints, Shiva paintstiks, Angelina fibers, Tyvek (see photo below) and more. We will provide all the supplies; you'll pay a materials fee as part of the cost of the class. A fun, low stress way to try some new things.
