Collage Fun with Gail

Come and join us for a day filled with fun and fabric! Bring your favorite Laura Heine pattern. Gail will take the mystery out of collage, the art of applying small scraps of fabric to a base to create a beautiful picture. Choose one of 150 Laura Heine's collage patterns (we have several to choose from or we can special order for you) and bring fabrics you like from your stash. If you need assistance in selecting fabrics we are happy to help! Be sure to get your SUPPLY LIST from the shop ahead of time, it will be your guide. There is a small amount of prep work to do before you come to class. Bring your imagination and prepare to have fun! YOU CAN DO THIS! Find your little, medium or big pattern from Laura H to begin your collage journey and come ahead with your supplies. No machine needed for class. (Note: If you are trying to make a collage of a person, cat, dog portrait, that is the "Create Your Own Collage" Class.) See you soon!

WEEKEND Beginning Quilting Course with Gail

We are excited to also provide the WEEKEND Beginning Quilting Course. This is a three-Saturday, quick, intensive workshop on all the basics of quilting. From reading a pattern, cutting, sewing, squaring, walking foot quilting and finishing, this class will set you out on your own quilting adventure, and have you creating masterpieces in no time at all. Be sure to start with our class book and examine the "Streets and Avenues" pattern in Baby Size as your first quilt. Get the SUPPLY LIST to be ready for your first class and remember all class supplies are 20% off. You may sign up on-line or in the store. Be sure to get your book that has the pattern along with the detailed supply list to ensure that you will have everything you need to get started. It will be the beginning of many creative projects for you and your family. Of note: IF you have little or no knowledge of your machine, it is advisable that you FIRST COMPLETE the "Get Acquainted with Your Machine" Class. This is a one-on-one appointment prior to class where you will learn basic machine sewing, and sign-up is available in the shop or you may call.
