  1. Susan Cleveland – Piping Hot Binding
    Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Expert
    Add spark and a professional finish to any style piece. Every detail of binding and tiny perfect piping will be covered in class with step-by-step demos and printed instructions. Machine differences will be addressed so students will be successful with their own machines. Students work on their practice piece to achieve making perfect piping, preparing the quilt, applying piping, applying binding, mitering corners, joining tails, and finishing for a show-quality back. Variations will be on display and discussed. Many major award-winners are using this technique to achieve stunning results!

Then experiment with different combinations to see which design layouts appeal best to you for making your choice of a wall hanging, table runner, table topper, a bag or the beginnings of a quilt top.

3. Emily Taylor – Fabric Collage Supply List
Skill Level: All
Collage quilts are a bit like impressionist paintings– they are successful when the artist (quilter)  understands the interplay of value and color in a composition.  My collage quilt patterns start with a gray-tone panel onto which pieces of fabric are adhered.  This panel makes it easy to understand where values should change to create  a stunning collage quilt.  You will have a choice of two designs. Pattern $25.

If you love wool applique, this is the class for you.

Combining basic embroidery stitches can give texture and dimension to the wool pieces. The kit includes the $9.00 pattern, all the wool, all the thread, variegated perle cotton, needles, border fabric and stitch guide. Everything will be cut out and ready for stitching! The focus will be on stitching, no prep time in class.  Please bring small scissors and extra lighting if you need it. Finished size approximately 15” X 18”  I will contact each student ahead of time for color selection. Get ready, get set for a fun time with wool and embroidery!! Kit $40.
