Thursday March 21, 6-9pm
If you've always wanted to make a quilt, aren't quite sure how to attach binding, or have never used a walking foot--this class is for you! Make a throw-sized quilt, start to finish, in this single 3-hour class. We will prep fabrics with a rotary cutter and ruler, stitch together a very simple quilt top, use a walking foot on the studio machines to quilt the blanket, and learn two methods for attaching the binding. While most will complete this project within the 3 hour timeframe, there will be an option for scheduling a reduced-rate private lesson at another
time to allow you to finish the quilt. No stress is involved in the making of this quilt!.Contact Karen for a list of materials, or if you'd prefer to purchase a kit of supplies at the time of class.

In this beginner sewing class, we will make a lined tote bag. Master skills such as following a seam allowance and reading a simple pattern with this versatile project that uses all straight seams.

Handbag with Leather Handles
$65 plus materials
Make your favorite new handbag while learning how to work with leather and purse hardware. Handles, cream-colored zipper and all hardware is included in the course fee. Please bring 1 yard of home dec-weight fabric for the exterior of the bag (something heavier than quilting cotton), and 1 yard of quilting cotton for the lining. If you prefer, you may also bring a 7" zipper to match your fabric if you do not want to use the one provided. If you have questions about the materials, just ask! You will complete this bag in the 3 hour class, plus go home with a copy of the pattern written by Karen.
Drawstring Project Bag
Sew your very own knitting project bag. This lined drawstring pouch makes a beautiful, reusable gift bag as well. Bring your own fabric (1/2 yard of two coordinating woven fabrics--email me with questions), or I will have several options from which to choose. Beginner-friendly class.
