Beginning Quilting Placemat Class

Next Saturday, January 10, Linda Kay is teaching a class for beginners on making a placemat. This would be an excellent class for someone who is somewhat interested in sewing or quilting but not certain if the whole thing is their thing.

The student uses a charm pack and small amount of fabric and batting and working knowledge of a sewing machine. Toss in a few straight pins. There's minimal cutting involved and therefore no need for a rotary cutter, cutting mat or long straight ruler....etc. You can't get much more basic than this.

At the end of the lesson, the student will understand the 1/4" seam allowance rule and how to "sandwich" a quilt and rudimentary machine quilting. Oh yeah, and you'll have one placemat.

So if you are a beginner, a novice or know of someone who fits this category and is looking for what some people would call a hobby (but we tend to view it as a calling) come in or give us a ring and we'll "show you the way".
