NOVEMBER - Fearless Foundation Paper Piecing
Instructor: Kitty Wilkin
Date: Nov. 2, 2021 (Tuesday)
Time: 9am to 12pm
Fee: $ 25
Skill Level: All levels
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of foundation paper piecing, but also an arsenal of tips and tricks to ensure you never have to rip seams again (well, or at least very, very rarely!). Foundation paper piecing is a quilting technique with which you sew fabric pieces to a paper foundation by sewing along pre-drawn lines, allowing for perfect points, easily duplicated blocks, and the creation of just about any pictorial or geometric design sewn with fabric. With a bit of practice and some helpful hints along the way, foundation paper piecing opens a whole new world of quilting.
Kitty will provide the foundation patterns to print off prior to class. Each student will be able to prepare his/her own patterns before class.

DECEMBER - No Class
JANUARY - Tumbling Block or Inner City
Instructor: Kelly Ashton
Date: Jan 4 & 5, 2022
Time: 9am to 12pm each day
The Tumbling Block is a wonderful study in color and value, in addition to being the perfect learning ground for set-in seams!
Inner City is also a great study in color and value. This quilt combines the best of both worlds (IMHO): some chain-piecing and some set-in seams by machine!
Registration opens Nov 2021
FEBRUARY - Jewel Box
Instructor: Karen Combs
Date: Feb 8th
Time: 9am to 1pm
This is a beautiful quilt with the illusion of depth. Don’t let it scare you, the piecing is easy, created from just triangles! Believe it or not, this stunning quilt is created with just one block, done in different colors. Quilt is 48” x 48”. Different layouts will be discussed in class.
Karen will send a fabric selection video, supply list and pre-cutting video before class.
In class, we will look at value tips, fabric placement, cutting and sewing tips, layout options, border options and start sewing. Students will get quite a few blocks done in class.
After booking, Karen will send a supply list for the students. Pattern is required for class. Pattern can be downloaded from Karen’s Etsy store for last-minute sign-ups. Optional gradated fabrics are available from Karen’s webstore as well as a print pattern.
Please note: Class locations will vary between in person and virtual (Zoom). Please note the location when registering for a class.
