Skill Level: All Levels

Kit Fee: $15.00

Description: When I first learned to quilt, it was by hand. I fell in love with it. Although I free motion and do ruler work on my domestic machine, I still love to hand quilt. It is something I can take with me on road trips or wherever I may be and my machine is not available. Come learn or practice the fine art of Handquilting. We will learn about: Batting selection and testing, quilting patterns and designs including feathers, marking, needles, hoop and threads. This is a hands on/process class. I will help you learn the technique.

Fabric/Supply Requirements:

  • Basic Sewing Kit
  • 18″ ruler or longer
  • Something for marking fabric
  • 2 yards fabric (prewashed – it will make it easier) – The fabric may be in (1) 2 yard piece or 1 yard of 2 different colors. I highly suggest a solid!
  • Round or oval hoop (around 12-18″)
  • Sharpie permanent marker
  • Thimbles

The kit will include different types of batting, a selection of quilting needles, templates and maybe a few surprises.
