2019 – 2020

MEMBERS HAVE FIRST PRIORITY

February: Diane Portwood – “What Are You Worth?”. Workshop: Block Butler & Storage Bucket~ A great way to keep pieces and parts of quilt blocks and applique together while traveling! Workshop fee is $15. Kit fee is $13 for both block carrier and quilter’s caddy.

Diane has been asked to teach the Quilter’s Caddy
more frequently than any other class. The Quilter’s Caddy not only can be used for all your quilting and sewing notions, but also can be used as a beach tote, knitting, bathroom organizer, or a wonderful place for kids and teens to keep their toys and school supplies! Kit fee $10, for the bucket and screen. Please cut fabric out before class.

March: Teri Young & Kara Mason – Embroidery Workshop. Workshop: Marcia’s Flowers~ Wool Applique is a 2-day workshop. Day 1 you will create the base and Day 2 will focus on the embroidery. The Class Fee is $35.

This wool applique design, inspired by a friend’s jacket print, has been used to top a box or to make a pillow. In this workshop, we will learn the basics of wool applique: cutting your design elements, methods for placing and securing them onto the background, and stitching them down. We will then focus on the embroidery embellishments used to make the applique come alive. The first day, we focus on stitching the design, and we will spend the next day learning a variety of embroidery stitches to make your work sparkle.

April:  Workshop: Tote Bag Class (3 Different Sizes)~ Using the pattern ‘Totally Trendy Totes2.0’ by By Annie. The pattern includes instructions for three different size tote bags. We will be making the Large tote bag. The pattern also includes a bonus pattern for see-thru projects bags sized for each tote. This will be a six hour class on Friday.
