Pieced Pinwheels with Faith Garrold
Spin into Spring with this cheery pinwheel pattern! Completed with a combination of machine and hand work, the finished piece makes a welcoming wall hanging, and is a cheerful way to practice your stitching. Multiples made at home could become a table topper or a quilt. You will stitch three pinwheels in class, each needing only four 4″ squares – raid your stash and mix & match prints!
Materials Needed: Quilting weight cotton fabric (twelve 4″ squares); 1/4 yd muslin; 1/3 quilting weight cotton fabric (borders & backing), handsewing needle, a spool of thread (in pinwheel and backing fabric colors), and your sewing machine.
Friday, April 26, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
$35 (plus materials). Space is limited to 2-6 students.
Log Cabin Quilt with Meagan Guité
Log Cabin is a classic quilt pattern, great for beginners and intermediate quilters, with endless possibilities in color and layout design. This pattern will make it seem like you are a seasoned quilter, even if this is your very first quilt! This series of three Sundays in April will walk you through all the steps needed in order to end with a quilt top by the end of the month. The first Sunday will be fabric choice and the basics of rotary cutting; the second Sunday will get you well into making your blocks; and the third Sunday will have you assembling your quilt top and borders. These classes will set you up with enough knowledge each week to go home and work on your quilt in preparation for the next class. A true Quilt-Making 101, this class will have you not only successfully making your first quilt, but will also familiarize you with a pattern perfect for re-imagining and stitching up again and again!
Materials Needed: Log Cabin Quilt pattern; quilting-weight cotton fabric for your desired quilt size; 100% cotton thread. You may wish to try an extra-sharp Microtex sewing needle for your machine too!
Sundays, April 7, 14, & 28, noon – 3:00pm SOLD OUT!
$65 (plus materials). Space is limited to 2-6 students.

Sewing students should bring their own sewing machine and any special feet (i.e. zipper or buttonhole foot) to class. Don’t forget your floor pedal and power cord! We have irons, ironing boards, rotary cutters, mats, and rulers as well as scissors and pins for you to use during class. Feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
If you do not have a sewing machine or one that travels well, we have two refurbished sewing machines at the shop for you to use. They are available on a first-come, first-serve basis – just let us know when you sign up for class.
