Beginning Quilt Class
Thursday, Feb 22 4:30pm to 7:30pm
Are you interested in learning to quilt or know someone who is? Are you just getting started and not sure of where to go next? Then this is the class for you. Laurel will teach you all the basic terminology that is unique to quilters, how to use a rotary cutter and rulers to square up your fabric and cut strips, and how to achieve the quarter inch seam allowance to make your quilts come out with perfect points. The only supplies you will need to bring is your sewing machine. Class size is limited to 5.
( Please note: the Saturday class scheduled for February 24 is full so a new class time has been added for the Thursday evening before. This class will be offered at least once a quarter.)
