Spring Classes

I have finally scheduled some classes at Quilters Loft Company for April and May. These are classes I have taught before, back by popular demand:

Creative Surface Design Workshop
Saturday, April 19, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 3,
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Come and learn how to create interesting textures and colors in your quilts, using fabric paints, Shiva paintstiks, Angelina fibers, Tyvek, rubber stamps, Wonder Under (used not as a fusible, but as a paint transfer material) and more. All supplies are supplied in a kit available from me at class for $10. This is a no-stress, fun playtime.

Beginning Machine Quilting
Tuesday, April 8, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 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 about threads, needles, thread tension, and batting to ensure good results.

Supply lists for both classes will be at Quilters Loft next week.
