Bring your own machine to class; just a basic machine, one that does straight stitching, is needed. There will be homework. Much of the sewing will be done at home.The class project is the small lap quilt shown. It measures approximately 41x41 inches. The My Take 4 Quilt pattern, designed for this class, is included in the class fee. Batting is also included in the class fee.Click here for the materials and supplies list for the class. It can be downloaded and printed.In class you will be given a USB drive that contains all of the class handouts in pdf file format: instructions, reference materials and 'slide shows' of various steps in making the quilt top. These do not replace your coming to class. Printed 'class copies' of the handouts will be available in class, for use in class. So you need not bring your own copies to class.
I communicate about the class via email. Please be sure your email address is correct. You might want to add my email address to your contacts to help ensure that my emails do not go to your spam mail folder.
Class are small; class size is limited to 6 people. If classes are full you can add your name to the Wait List to be notified when new classes are scheduled.
