Intro to Quiltmaking by Hand

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this four-session class, you will learn all the steps to making a mini quilt entirely by hand, including drawing blocks, cutting fabrics, piecing, basting, and tying or quilting. This is the right class if want to forego the sewing machine and choose the “slow stitching” route with your quilting. You will make a 4-block mini quilt, choosing your own blocks from a selection designed by the teacher.

A beginner’s supply kit is included. Additional required supplies are listed below.

Teacher: Tahli de Courcy
Complete beginners welcome. No prior sewing experience required.

This class meets from 1-4pm on the following dates:
Tuesday, March 12
