A Three Session Class, PLUS TextileLab Membership

+Wednesday, May 1, 6:00-8:00pm.

Quilting is for everyone! Come learn how to make Log Cabin quilt blocks, one of the oldest and most versatile quilt blocks out there. During this 3-meeting program, the process of making quilt blocks—from fabric selection and cutting to sewing and piecing together—will be demystified. Gain confidence using sewing machines both during class sessions and out!

This class includes a one-month membership (April 10th - May 10th) that provides access to the Foundry's TextileLab so you can continue to work on your blocks outside of class time (a $30 bonus). In the final class session (on May 1st), we’ll cover joining your blocks to make a larger quilt top and if you wish, turn a single quilt block into either a miniature quilt as a wall hanging or potholder.

Requirements: Students should be able to sew a straight-stitch on a sewing machine.

Skills you’ll learn:
Threading and setting up a sewing machine and bobbin
Sewing Machine Operation and Problem-Solving
Prepping and cutting fabric
Use of sewing tools (shears, seam ripper, tailor’s chalk)
Marking, pinning, and sewing straight seams
Color theory in quilt composition
