How Should I Quilt This?

Thursday, July 18th, 2019 9am to 12pm ~ $45 


Regardless of whether you do your own quilting or hire someone to do it for you, deciding how to quilt a quilt perplexes many quilters. Learn how different approaches to quilting can bring out the best in your work. 

This is a hands-on class. Students will leave with a variety of quilted samples that will be useful for quilting future quilts.

Piecing Curves

Thursday, July 18th, 2019 1pm to 4pm ~ $45 


Learn to design and draft templates, cut precisely, and sew inset curves.  You will conquer curves using our original Eclipse design to make either a wall hanging or a napping quilt.  Using your own fabrics, you can learn about value and create a unique variation of our Eclipse quilt.

Rediscovering Your Stash

Friday, July 19th, 2019 9pm to 5pm (2 hr lunch break) ~ $90 


Gain color confidence and plan creative ways to use your stash in one day!  Mix a big dose of color theory with an in-depth discussion of combining patterns and a pinch of working with large-scale fabrics and you’ll end up with a plan for projects that you want to make from the fabrics you already have.  


In addition, you’ll have consultations about how to freshen up your stash while learning how to use fabrics that you love but find perplexing. You'll see new possibilities for working with your stash and leave the workshop with beautiful palettes and plans for your next few projects.  

Fabric Smackdown

Saturday, July 20th, 2019 9am to 12pm ~ $45 


You’ll learn how to analyze and understand fabrics then apply what you’ve learned to create palettes for future projects. Learn how a variety of illustration styles, scales and patterns in fabric make for a more interesting quilt while expanding the range of fabrics you can use with confidence. 

This is a No-Sew Workshop.

The Role of Color

Saturday, July 20th, 2019 1pm to 4pm ~ $45 


Develop analytical methods for using color with confidence through individual and group color explorations. You will leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of the role of color in your quilts and with a renewed excitement about quilting. 

This is a No-Sew Workshop.
