Classes are offered utilizing all of my patterns.  If you are interested in a private class, a class for a small group in your home or mine, or a workshop for your Guild or Quilt Shop, please contact me with the name of the pattern/patterns that you are interested in so that we may discuss details on number of class sessions/hours along with desired dates and times.


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.
