Learn how to make your first quilt! We'll teach you everything from how to choose fabrics, how to read a pattern and use a rotary cutter to quilting and finally binding. With the included book, customized instructions and knowledgeable teacher, you'll gain the skills and confidence to complete this project, and hopefully many more!

The intention is for you to have a finished baby-size quilt (or bigger) by the end of the class, but depending on the project YOU want to make and YOUR particular sewing speed and skills, this cannot be guaranteed. Please note: Sewing at home between classes will be required to finish the quilt.
