Anyhow, as you can see I'm excited that Kingsport has what is shaping up to be a fabulous independent quilt shop. They also have an amazing classroom . . . where I'll be teaching. So . . .
April 16, 23, 30; May 7
10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. (we'll take half an hour at noon for lunch)
The fee is $100 for all four 4-hour sessions, a total of 16 class hours
Boot camp for quilters—but so much more fun! Whether you’ve never quilted before or you want to become more accurate, this is the class for you. Get comfortable with hand and machine piecing and appliqué techniques, paper foundations, rotary cutting, mitered corners, drafting, and templates. Perhaps most important, learn how to troubleshoot and compensate for human error. Do your homework and you’ll leave class with a completed sampler top.
