LEARN TO QUILT: Basic Beginners

A comprehensive course that will walk you through every step of quilting while constructing a throw size quilt, approximately 45” x 60”.
Over the 6 weeks you will:

  • be guided in your fabric selection & learn about colour theory
  • become familiar with using rulers & rotary cutters
  • measure, cut & piece your fabrics
  • ‘sandwich’ your layers & quilt them together
  • learn how to bind your quilt, resulting in a finished project!
Basic machine sewing skills are needed ie can you sew in a straight line!!?? 🙂

Classes are Tuesdays, 6 sessions.  Daytime (1:00pm to 3:30pm) or evening (7pm to 9:30pm); due to demand we have added an additional Friday evening class, 6pm to 8:30pm!

We do have COVID protocol in place at the shop: we have reduced the number of seats available to ensure social distancing and request you bring a mask to wear when necessary.  The workstations and machines will be sanitized before & after each class.

If you have a sewing machine please bring it with 1/4-inch sewing foot, a walking foot & extra bobbins. Contact us if you do not have a machine as we have a several available to use for the duration of the course.

As well a basic sewing kit is needed: rotary cutter, small snipping scissors, straight pins, safety pins, seam ripper, 50 wt cotton thread, notebook & pen/pencil.

Construction of the 45-inch x 60-inch throw quilt requires 12 fat quarters to piece the front & additional fabric for backing & binding. As well you will need batting.  Enjoy a 15% discount on all materials & supplies purchased during the duration of your course.
