CLASSES

Customize Your Class!

 

Please explore my website to find the pattern that you would like to choose for class and contact me so that we may discuss whether you would like to have a kit provided with the class, or whether your group would enjoy picking their own fabrics and supplies from their stash to complete their project.  We can customize your experience to include the stitches and techniques that you would enjoy during the time period that works best for your group.  This is truly a class of your choice!

Bamboo Felt Applique - Oh So Soft and Oh So Fun!

This class allows you to explore the fun of working with bamboo felt and embroidery stitches utilizing the pattern of your choice from the category "Bamboo Felt and Wool Friendly" patterns on my website.  This is a great class or workshop option since you may pick a small project like a pincushion where you can just dip your toes into the techniques for beginners or those that have not worked with bamboo felt before.  But, if your group wants to go further with exploring more stitches they can pick a project that includes a wider variety of stitches and is a bit larger project.

Applique Elements Class 1

This is a technique class where you learn the basics of fusible applique, buttonhole stitch, stem stitch, and ladder stitch along with seeing how to "birth" a quilt instead of using a binding to finish it off.  After learning these techniques, you will be able to choose one of my simpler patterns and be able to confidently start your new project.

Applique Elements Class 2

This technique class is for those that already have mastered the beginning elements of fusible applique but want to go further by learning how to make 3D elements for their quilts, learn yo-yo making and the traditional applique stitch to attach them to your quilt, work with multi-layer appliques, and explore more advanced embroidery stitches used in my patterns.  After this class you will be ready to start any of my patterns with confidence.
