Classes at Fiddlehead Artisan Supply


Below you will see a list of classes for quilting, clothing, and small gifts. They are arranged in order of time and date, and the class descriptions are further down the page.

Because of our limited space, most of our classes have a maximum of four students, and the quilting classes have a maximum of three students. If you are interested in taking a class, please stop by the shop to sign up and pay for the class. We will run the class even if we have one student, so please don't heasitate to sign up (or, get a group of friends together to take all the slots!) You can also call the shop to sign up at (207) 338-8422.

If a class does not have any students signed up for it within 24 hours of the start time, the teacher may decide to cancel the class. So, please sign up well in advance to make sure the class will run, and if you plan to stop in at the last minute for a class that you haven't signed up for, please call in advance if you live far away, as there might be a chance the class won't be running.

Quilting Classes

Design and Make Your Own Log Cabin Quilt Top
In this class, students will get to design their own Log Cabin design, choose the fabrics for their project, and then make the top. Students will work on their quilt tops both in the class and at home. Some quilting knowledge is very helpful. If you know how to sew but have never quilted before, you could take this class, but should be prepared that you might need much more time than the other students, and might not be able to finish your quilt top within the three weeks that this class is offered.

Cost: $75 plus materials for three 2.5 hour classes
Materials Needed:
Quilting fabric, your machine, and the basic quilting supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.
Teacher:
Abby Gilchrist


Sewing Classes

 

Garment Sewing Class
In this class we will help you through your pattern/s of choice. You can work through a different pattern each week, or focus on one pattern for the whole class. Bring a pattern you have already started and are having trouble with or come to the class without a pattern or fabric picked out and we will help you get started. During class you will get help with your project, as well as hearing the advice and help the others are getting.

Cost: $75 for three 2.5 hour classes
Materials:
The pattern, fabric, your machine, and the basic supplies you need for your machine and project. We can probably provide a machine if we know in advance.
Teacher: Abby Gilchrist

Sewing with Knits on Your Home Sewing Machine
In this class, we will cover the basics of sewing knits with your home sewing machine. We will help you adjust your sewing machine to get a good stitch for knits, and then use the skills we have covered to make one of the following garments: The Lark Tee is a women's pattern that has four neckline options and four sleeve length options, offering you a lot of design options. The Linden Sweatshirt with raglan sleeves has a more modern fit, and can be made as a shirt if you use a lighter weight knit
. The Ashland Skirt or Culotts is available in both children's and adult sizes.

Cost: $25 for a 2 1/2 hour class
Materials:
Your sewing machine with at least a zig zag stitch option, a walking foot for your machine (or a serger), ball point sewing needle, a twin stretch needle (optional), the pattern, fabric, matching thread, and other basic sewing supplies
Teacher:
Katy Day

Pop-Up Baskets
Make any size Pop-up basket
you would like! We will go from start to finish and cover different interfacing options for the baskets as well as ways to add quilt blocks and other adjustments, into your project.

Cost: $20 for a 2 hour class  (or $30 if you are making a pieced outside and need to come early for an extra hour before the class starts)
Materials:
The pattern, fabric, interfacing, thread, and pop-up frame needed for your project
Teacher:
