"YOU CAN DO THIS"
Quilter's Pantry is now offering classes for beginners!
This class is designed for the person who wants to learn how to quilt, but has no idea where to start. Geared to those who already own a sewing machine. (but if you don't have one yet, you are still welcome as smaller ones may be available)
We will be going through the tools needed and how to use them; the glossary of quilting terms; abbreviations used most often; and easy techniques used in simple blocks.
Other tips, hints, and the fun of quilting will also be discussed. Questions during class are encouraged and please know that I believe that there are no 'dumb' questions!
You will be doing a small block (or a few blocks) during the first class so you get hands on experience and will be able to take your project home to finish, or bring back in a future class for the next step. (We will set a date and time for this class to meet again for their next class).
Students will also be given a binder with lots of information including:
1) Charts to help in quilting;
2) Section of "Understanding the Quilting process
2) A glossary of terms to refer to;
3) Ideas for fabric and tool storage;
4) A listing of several web sites related to quilting
5) Sections about quilting techniques we use in class as well as many more to use in the future
PLUS a pattern for a small table cover or wall hanging. (the one we will be starting in class).
I prefer that you bring your own sewing machine, as well as some of your own tools. This will help you get to know your machine and be able to continue sewing at home after this class.
