Classes – Basics and Bindings and Colors, Oh My!

What?  August already? I had a summer here a minute ago…

Well, it is time to get myself back to school.  I wanted to share my teaching schedule for August and September.  I have some standard classes and some new classes.  I don’t want you to miss out on the ones you are interested in.

All my classes are at Rocky Mountain Sewing and Vacuum at  8601 W Cross Dr Unit P1 – Littleton, CO 80123. 303-979-2334

I have one class in August, the Absolute Beginner Quilting Basics Series – Class 1

Saturday, August 1st or Wednesday, August 5th from 10:30 to 4:30 for $35.

I have three exciting classes in September.  First is the Machine Binding Workshop on Wednesday, September 2nd from 10:30 to 2:00 for $20.  MANY of you have asked for this class.  We will focus only on binding and you will leave class with samples to take home to help you make it again.

Want to learn to quilt? Take the Quilting Basics Series with Class 2 – Strips and Triangles.  (And I have a NEW way to make easy triangles! Yay!)  The class is on Saturday, September 5th or Wednesday, September 9th from 10:30 to 4:30 for $35.

The third class is VERY exciting!  For some, picking the colors for a quilt can be very challenging!  For others, it is one of their favorite parts.  It is back to school for both of you. The Flowers In The Window Workshop uses my pattern, which is available on my website, and takes you step-by-step thru my color process, layout and piecing. (And, fair waring, there will be homework!)  If you struggle with fabrics or love to use color in your quilts, this three-part class is not to be missed!

The first session is on Thursday, September 10th from 10:30 to 2:30. Session 2 is on Thursday, October 8th from 10:30 to 2:30 and the Session 3 is on Thursday, November 12, from 10:30 to 2:30.  The cost for all three class is $75.  Fall in love with color and make your own work of art.

Hope to see you in class soon!
