Raw Edge Appliqué

with Anna Kelly

This easy to make coneflower wall quilt is a perfect pattern for learning raw edge appliqué using a blanket stitch or satin stitch. This technique is a very accurate way to applique small, intricate pieces; add interest to your quilts; and it is so much faster than hand stitching.  We will be creating an 18” by 18” wall quilt.

Please refer to Pre-Work buttons (above left) for creating the shapes on fusible web in advance of this class.

Fabric Postcard Workshop

with Joy Hancock


Fabric postcards are easy to make using leftover scraps from other projects. They make a unique, beautiful gift for a friend or family member. Frame these small works of art, place them on a photo stand or mail them to a special recipient using first class postage. In this workshop we will be making two fabric postcards and discussing options for design and embellishment.  A kit with supplies for 2 postcards will be available for $5. 


What to bring: a sewing machine, scissors, black or dark brown and white thread and bobbins to match.
