Improvisational Basketweave Quilt Class: Coming soon!
Instructor: Stacey Sharman
Did you ever see the beautiful Gee's Bend quilts and think "How did they do this?" In this class, you will learn how and make your very own.
This is a fun and easy class that will teach you how to piece your own “improvisational” basket weave crib or lap size quilt. You don’t need to worry too much about cutting fabric the right size or sewing perfect seams. Just come, have fun, explore color, and leave with your own, unique quilt top.
Good for beginning through advanced sewers.

Teacher Bio: Stacey Sharman
Stacey fell in love with needles and thread when she was in her teens and has been sewing something ever since. After dabbling with fashion and home decor sewing, she fell head over heels into the world of quilt-making. She finds the most satisfying thing about making quilts is creating useable art that will also be cherished and remembered, possibly for generations. She is a textile addict and takes great pleasure in getting to play with different colors, textures, and designs. Most of all, she likes to have fun with fabric and gets excited about cutting big pieces of cloth into little pieces and then sewing them back together again.
