Youth Sewing: Block of the Month
Each month we’ll be teaching youth to sew while helping them make their first block of the month quilt. We found a great book, “Kids Can Quilt” with patterns written just for kids, a story each month, and dry erase patterns so you can plan out your colors. The kit for the quilt includes background fabric, applique fabric, and the book for $50. We will meet the second Saturday of each month beginning April 13 and have a finished quilt by November.
The border, binding, and batting will need to be purchased separately by October’s class session. You will also need to bring your own sewing machine. Each class will have a $5 class fee.
2nd Saturday of Each Month
A 12-Month Block of the Month Program designed by Marianne Elizabeth featuring the Arabella Rose collection for RJR.
This quilt, a perfect twist of tradition and elegance, infused with fresh, modern color, is 92” x 92” and for Advanced Beginners. If you can sew half-square triangles and flying geese, this queen size quilt for you.
You may choose an accelerated 6 month program and receive 2 blocks per month or the traditional 12 month program and receive 1 block per month.
Cost is $29.00 per month or $58.00 per month for the accelerated program. The pattern and all fabric for the top and binding are included. Backing and batting are extra. Triangles on a Roll and the Tucker Trimmer are recommended to make this quilt a little bit easier. Only 10 kits available so sign up early!
Beginning in February
The 2013 EmbroidaBlock of the Month program combines the fun and unique HoopSisters technique with digitized quilting by Sharon Schamber, Master Quilter. The blocks are available in 5”, 6”, 7”, 8”, or 9”. The bed quilt can be made as a throw up to a king.
The program includes the designs only, but we will be happy to help you select your own custom kit so you get fabrics perfect for your décor.
