Our shop's Quilter's Quest Quilt:
Announcing a new class: Stashbusting Projects with Tamar Baskind
Each third Sunday of the month, from 1-3, Tamar will teach a project that uses scraps, strips, and left-over fabric. The projects are quick, designed to be completed (or nearly completed) in 2 hours, but the skills are applicable to larger, longer projects. The first class will be on November 15th, and Tamar will teach how to create unique fabric greeting cards.
Ongoing In-Store events:
Skills Demonstrations, with Janet McDonald
Every Thursday afternoon, 2:30-5:30, Janet will demonstrate skills on a walk-in basis. In November, Janet will demonstrate paper piecing based on the book "50 Little Paper-Pieced Blocks" by Carol Doak. Come in and ask for Janet!
Block of the Month, with Alla Blanca
On the first Saturday of every month, from 9:00am - 9:30am, Alla will teach you how to make one block, which you can then turn into a pillow, or combine them for a quilt. Each month's block builds on the skills learned the month before, and allows for review as well as learning new skills. For more information, please go to our classes calendar.
Stashbusting Projects, with Tamar Baskind
On the third Sunday of each month, Tamar will teach a project that uses scraps, stripes, and left-over fabric. Each project is small, but the skills are applicable to large projects. The first class, on November 15th, will teach how to create fabric greeting cards. For more information, please go to our classes calendar.
