Grab those batiks out of your stash and let's make some fish! We will use Laura Heine's method to fuse fabric and create your unique aquatic dweller. This class is a great way to learn the technique without having to create a huge quilt. So be prepared to channel your inner artist when you join Peggy for the day. In order to get the most out of your class, there will be prep work ahead of time. Batik kits will also be available.

Customers love the look of this wonderful 13" wide by 9" tall

bag. You will zigzag fabric tubes together to make a large rectangle,

overlap the edges, and add the bag bottom. The end result

is one gorgeous purse/basket. NEW - We have just added

sixteen different button options for your bag. Kathy has made

over 47 bags and is a real pro at this method. Sewing machine

with a zigzag stitch is required. Some homework must be completed

before class.

If you've struggled with paper foundation piecing on your own, or just haven't understood the technique, this class is for you. You'll start with "easy" blocks, move on to more complicated blocks and be surprised at how perfect they all turn out. Paper piecing is a technique every quilter should have in their repertoire. This is one of our most popular classes so sign up early if you are interested.

Trivet "refills" are available so you do not have to purchase the pattern twice. Join Mary for this quick evening class.
