This Year long Block of the Month program is perfect for people who have always wanted to learn how to quilt. We'll have the luxury of meeting in Quilting Away in Amherst NH, a lovely quilt shop, while working on a series of 12 blocks. The blocks come from the book You Can Quilt: Building Skills for Beginners by Leila Gardunia and Marlene Oddie. There is a $25/month fee for the instruction (payable to Linda), as well as a Kit fee for the book and enough fabric to make the quilt top and binding - you will need to purchase additional fabric for the back. The kit (including the book) is available for purchase at Quilting Away, and the kit fee is $81.00. If you elect to use other fabrics, you will be provided the yardage requirements for the top, but the purchase of the book is required to begin the class.
Each block teaches basic principles of quilt making, and builds on the skills aquired in the previous month.
The class meets every second Tuesday of the month from 6 PM until 9 PM.
To register for the limited number of seats in the class, please call Linda Pearl at 603-233-0320. You will pay Linda for the class instruction; Quilting Away has the kit for the quilt.
Classes begin on February 9th
