A Day at the Imrov with Billie and Kassie
Feb 16 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

“A Day at the Imrov with Billie and Kassie”

Let loose and go wild!  We will push you to quilt outside the box and creatively sew blocks together without a pattern. Several improv piecing techniques will be demonstrated such as deconstructing traditional blocks and learning to create new ones.  Even though you are going wild, you will also be in total control. This is a great way to use those scraps and bust your stash! Great for everyone from beginners to advanced quilters.

  • Scraps in all shapes, sizes, colors, and designs (no scrap too small)
  • 1 yard background fabric

Other supplies:

  • Sewing machine in good working order with a quarter inch foot
  • Rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • Basic sewing supplies – scissors, pins, thread, bobbins, seam ripper etc.

STORM AT SEA – David Sirota
Apr 19 @ 9:15 am – 3:15 pm

STORM AT SEA
Using my “No More Tears”© Foundation Piecing Method
Are you curious about paper piecing? Do you and paper piecing already have a love/hate relationship? Do you love the accuracy you achieve, but hate the process of getting there? Well, this class will change that to a LOVE relationship. We’ll be using the versatile Storm at Sea pattern to learn my “No More Tears”© method of paper piecing. Although we won’t be finishing the entire project in class, you’ll have at least one full block, and the tools you’ll need to finish it at home, in half the time you’d expect from paper piecing. Don’t believe me?  You’ll just have to come and see for yourself!
