Upcoming Classes

Hazel Hedgehog Pillow or Wall Hanging
Friday, October 14, 2016
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
$29, pattern required

Teacher Judi Swain has renamed this pattern “Hazel The Hedgehog Diva” – and rightly so! With or without the cool glasses, Hazel is a hit. Make this as a pillow or wall hanging in a variety of sizes. If you enjoy the technique (it’s not paper pieced) you might want to venture out and make Fancy Forest which features not only Hazel, but also owls, rabbits, butterflies, and the ever popular Fancy Fox.

Just In Case
Friday, October 21, 2016
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
$29, pattern required

This handy organizer features inner zippered pockets made from mesh and vinyl for easy visibility. Small enough to fit into a glove box, the small version is perfect for a first-aid or travel sewing kit. The larger case will hold documents, maps, journals, sewing notions, jewelry, and more. The sew-in magnetic closure keeps your belongings secure. Judy Bryan will teach this class.

October Demo: Design Your Own Quilts

Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 12:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.

Join us for one of two October demos when Karen will show you how to use Electric Quilt to design your own quilts. The software is easy to use once you know a few tricks, and it’s available for PCs and Macs. You’ll learn how to scan and import fabric swatches and then design a quilt that’s the size you need to use up what you have in your stash. We’ll have the big screen TV out for the demo. If you already have EQ7 bring your laptop and follow along. Otherwise, watch and find out what this powerful tool will do for your creativity.
