All three classes are structured to meet twice for three hours each time. They are all from 6 pm to 9 pm at Maker Works (wonderful meeting place of the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild). You sign up through Maker Works' website (click on the name of the class to go to the correct spot on their site) and pay for the class when you attend the first meeting.
Thursday, September 13 and 20 will be Hand Appliqué. I've designed this cute owl pillow to help you learn how to appliqué some basic shapes. We'll also learn about background preparation, marking, fabrics, templates, needles, thimbles and how to finish your appliquéd project. If you can sew a binding on a quilt, you can appliqué by hand. Join us!
Monday, November 5 and 12 will be Machine Appliqué. This class features another great pillow project - this time with a mama and baby birds and some text. We'll learn about fusible web appliqué including how to trace your shapes, what order to sew them in, tips on fabric selection, ways to stitch the shapes down and much more!
I'm really looking forward to seeing some of you in class! If you aren't local, I'll be teaching these classes at QuiltCon too, so I hope to see you in February :)
