Guest Teacher, Sarah Bond: New Twists on Diamond Piecing
Come join us for a quilt workshop on Lone Star quilts and Lone Star Variations to expand the boundaries of your skills and creativity. Learn to turn out a variety of dazzling Lone Stars that match at the corners and lay flat!

The Lone Star is one of the visually simplest and yet most stunning of traditional quilt patterns. The 8-pointed star is made up of smaller diamonds and creates a visual effect of color and pattern radiating from the center of the star out to its points. This is a class for intermediate quilters or advanced beginner quilters with a love of precision and craftsmanship.

The class will start with a small lone star so that students can work through the basic construction techniques. We will then move on to planning and executing a larger version. We will also explore other variations where you can use your skills in new designs, such as the inverted star shown below. This is a workshop-style class where the technique will be taught in class and then there will be time for quilters to work with their own machines and materials during class.

Time: 10am to 5pm
Cost:
$125 for the day, including lunch
Materials Needed:
Fabric, thread, your machine (or borrow one of ours), and the basic supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.

Guided Sewing and Quilting Class
In this class we will help you through your project of choice. You can work through a different project each week, or focus on one project for multiple weeks. 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. This class can be used for both woven fabric and knit fabric projects, please let us know ahead of time if you wish to work on a project using knits. During class you will get help with your project, as well as hear the advice and help the others are getting. Brand new beginners are welcome! But, students should have a basic knowledge of how to use their machines (if you don't, we offer an introduction to sewing class).

Time: 2 to 4:30pm

Cost: $25 per class
Materials Needed:
Fabric, thread, your machine (or borrow one of ours), and the basic supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.

Introduction to Sewing
This class is designed for people who are brand new to sewing, and is for those who want to learn to either sew or quilt. We will get your machine up and running, learning how to check for good tension. We will learn basic techniques of using a rotary cutter, tracing and cutting out patterns and and will learn some basic seam finishes as well. In addition to the instruction, there will be time to make a simple project or two. Students will leave this class with the skills to tackle basic projects at home, or would be able to join either our guided quilting and sewing classes to work on more difficult projects.

Time: 10am to 4pm (including an hour break for lunch)

Cost: $50 plus materials
Materials Needed:
Fabric, thread, your machine (or borrow one of ours), and the basic supplies you need for your machine. We will provide cutting mats for use during the class.
