Intro to Quilting: Wednesdays, April 23, 30, May 7, & 14

Instructor: Stacey Sharman

This class introduces the beginning student to the tools and techniques of constructing a crib sized, nine-patch quilt using the sewing machine. This is a wonderful hands-on opportunity to learn the skills needed to transition to the construction of more complex designs. 

You will learn to: 

  • Use a quilting pattern
  • Use color and value to create visually interesting quilts
  • Use quilting friendly tools: a rotary cutter and quilter's rulers
  • Sewing techniques to make a durable, long-lasting quilt
  • Create a quilt top
  • Layer the top, batting, and backing
  • Baste
  • Quilt
  • Bind

Required skills: Students should be able to sew a straight seam on a sewing machine.

Please bring to 1st class:

  • Sewing Machine*
  • Scissors
  • Pins

  • Seam Ripper
  • Rotary Cutter 
  • Curved stainless steel safety pins (not Singer)
  • 6" x 24" quilting ruler (recommended)

  • 100% Cotton thread and filled bobbin in neutral color or to match fabric
  • 1 yard 100% cotton fabric for back of quilt
