Event Details

New for 2020 are monthly Parent/Kid Weekend Workshops for kids ages 8+! These are beginner workshops geared towards kids AND adults alike. You can come with your kid, niece or nephew, or as a solo adult if you are OK with being in class with children as young as 8 years old. Kids under 10 must have an adult with them, kids 10 and over may participate without an adult if they’d like.  If it is a machine sewing class you still must have taken the prerequisite class at the studio or already know how to use the sewing machine, but some months we will have hand sewing projects that kids as young as 6 can participate in!

Please note class needs 3 students in order to run. You will be notified via email or phone if registration is insufficient.

For January, we’re doing a Rail Fence Quilt Block Pillow. This fun quilt block design is great for beginners and allows you to get funky with your fabric choices. In this one day Saturday workshop we will cut and sew up a pillow you can be proud of!

Prerequisite: Our Intro to Sewing Workshop (or equivalent private lesson) or the ability to confidently thread and work a sewing machine. This is a Beginner Class for kids as young as 8 years old.

Skills Covered: Cutting with a rotary cutter (adults only, children will have their fabric cut for them) sewing straight 1/4” lines, pressing for quilting, quilting the top (optional) and making an envelope style pillow.

Materials Needed:

-1/4 yard of 4 different quilting cotton fabrics. If you choose to use 2 fabrics, please get 1/2 yard of each.

-an additional 1/2 yard of quilting cotton fabric for the back of the pillow.

-one 17” or 18” pillow form. Purchase a pillow form, not loose fill, because we are making envelope style backs. Click here to buy this on Amazon!
