COLLAGE – Beginner
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! So many people have had a lot of fun creating

these wonderful designs by Laura Heine. Pam has also added a few nice

designs in the mix, which we also carry. This process is fun, creative and

stretches your imagination with color and design.

Come take this two day class and design your collage quilt by using large floral,

leaf or novelty prints. No two will ever be the same, as you are the artist. The

technique for creating these quilts is unique and we would love to show you

how to make your very own collage quilt.

Time: 10:30 – 1:30
Cost: $50

BEGINNING QUILTING – Beginner
Summer is a great time of year to learn how to quilt. Tod is using a

new pattern for this class, CHERISH by Villa Rosa Designs and what

a cute quilt it is.

This class is jam packed with information and will last for six weeks.

You will learn how to use your rotary cutter/ruler/mat, machine piece,

square up blocks, make a back for your quilt, layer and machine sew

your “quilt sandwich” together and bind YOUR quilt. When the class is

over with, you WILL have a finished quilt. YAHOO!

BREEZY BATIK STARS – Advanced Beginner
This delightful quilt is bright and happy and combines pieced

“star blocks” with “20 patched blocks” to make a throw sized

quilt. Once you know how to make these blocks, you could

make a table runner or even a larger bed quilt. Yes the name

has batiks in it, but you could make this out of regular cotton

fabric or a combination of fabrics. Just as long as they are all

about the same weight.

Come spend a few days with Sherri and learn how to piece this

delightful quilt.

Time: 10:30 – 1:30

BEGINNING FREE MOTION– Beginner
Once again we are able to offer this fun class with Pam. It is amazing

how much she will show you and have you try at this 2 hour class. You

will begin with easy loopy designs, practice, and move on through

other designs that will encourage you to “spread your wings”. You will

get to practice after each tutorial. You will leave this class with

knowledge and skills to continue to practice at home. The key to “getting

the hang” of free motion quilting is PRACTICE, PRACTICE and more

PRACTICE. HINT: a small glass of wine in the evening before you practice

is a great help

* YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTENDED TRAY FOR YOUR MACHINE TO TAKE THIS CLASS.
