Description

Saturday Dec. 16, 9am-2pm (bring your lunch!)
& Sunday Dec. 17, 1pm-3pm

Sylvia and I just returned from a weekend quilting with the Pettways in Alabama. We want to bring these wonderful women to New Orleans in the near future, so proceeds from this class will be used as a 'fund-raiser' for their expenses to come here and do a weekend workshop at a local venue.

In this 2-day class you will learn about the quilters of Gee's Bend Louisiana and their history.

You will experience the free-wheeling yet intentional style of this method of quilting as you create your quilt blocks and sashings. Make your quilt any size (depending upon number of blocks you construct).

Bring your sewing machine (or use one of ours) and your solid color scraps. You may purchase fabrics in our shop at our 15% class discount.

On Day 1 (Saturday) you will complete most of your quilt blocks and begin adding sashings and borders
On Day 2 (Sunday, an optional day) you will make your "quilt sandwich" and begin hand quilting your new project. Some students may wish to complete this step much later; if so, you are always welcome to come back to our shop on any Monday thru Thursday to use our tables and assistance.

Our policies for all classes and workshops at Uptown Needle & Craftworks include:
• Full payment is due upon class registration. You may pay by credit card via telephone 504-302-9434 or Eventbrite. If you prefer to pay by cash or check your registration is not confirmed until payment is received.

• No refund or transfer of funds to another class is possible for cancellations with less than 48 hours notice or if you fail to show-up for a class you have registered and paid for.
* Depending upon each participant’s skill level, you may or may not complete your project in class. You are always invited back to work on your project in our shop at a mutually convenient time.
