102 - Longarm Quilting Basics
Maggie Marziale

Buying a longarm is a very exciting, it can also a little intimidating, maybe even terrifying. You might even wonder 'why did I do this?' Longarm quilting can be a wonderful new road in your quilting journey, I know it was for me. So let’s get you started! In this class, we’ll learn all the basics of Longarm quilting. We’ll talk about needles, thread, battings, tension and more. We’ll load a quilt on the frame and work with paper pantographs. When we’re comfortable with that, we’ll also try our hand at free motion quilting. This is class will be not only a lecture or demonstration, but will be hands on as well. If you own your own longarm and are not sure how to begin, or if you are thinking about purchasing one, then this class is for you!

There will be a $15 fee for materials and handout.

107 - Amalie
Mary Ann Webb

Amalie Lap size 48” x 56”

Amalie is a fun quilt that goes together easily using assorted 10" squares and a background fabric. The background ends up making a striking secondary design. The quilt looks great in a wide variety of fabrics and can be made using a 'layer cake', which is 40 or 42- 10" squares of fabric, usually from the same fabric collection. Because they are from the same line, they will naturally work well together. Larger size quilts are possible, refer to the pattern for yardages. 

 

Pattern required, Retail $12. If unable to find the pattern, the instructor can provide one for a fee of $12.

202 - Beyond the Basics: Longarm Quilting with Rulerwork and Custom Free Motion
Maggie Marziale

You’ve worked on a longarm and know the basics, but now you’re ready for more. Let’s take your longarm quilting to the next level. In this class we’ll go beyond the basics of longarm quilting. We’ll talk about custom quilting as we work on simple motifs to fill specific areas of quilt. Then we’ll move on to Rulerwork. So many of us own templates for machine quilting and just don’t know where or how to begin, or maybe are simply afraid to use them. There is nothing to be afraid of here. Working with rulers is not only fun, but will add so much to your machine quilting! With the use of rulers you can easily accomplish piano keys, curved cross hatching, perfect circles, and so much more! But wait, there’s more... how about combining the two, ruler work enhanced with Free Motion quilting, the possibilities are almost limitless! This class will not only be a lecture/demonstration, but will also be hands on. If you own your own longarm, or are familiar with longarm quilting and want to know more, then this class is for you!

Class Fee $15 for Materials and Handout.

NOTE:  A Minimum attendance of 10 is required to for this class to run. Class Size Maximum is 12.

402 - Starry Night
Jeri Fickes

Starry Night is an adorable Nativity pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful. It uses the Wonder Curve Ruler. This ruler allows cuts to fabrics so you can sew curves effortlessly without using pins or glue and you end up with no pleats or puckers. There are 15 blocks and 8 different layouts for this quilt. This is a great pattern to use your stash. I will bring a large container of fat quarters to sell from the quilt shop where I work (Somewhere Sewing in Millersburg, Ohio) in case you're not sure of your fabric choices once we get going and of course there is always the vendor mall! We will be able to get several of the blocks done during the four days of class and you will leave with a confident understanding of the technique and pattern. There is an additional pattern available to make a cow to replace the camel if you'd rather. I'm sure you, your children, and your grandchildren will fall in love with Starry Night and it will give you another reason to look forward to Christmas each year. You will probably end up making more than one! The pattern cost is $26 and the Wonder Curve ruler is $32.00. This is not a one project ruler, there are many other patterns and books available that utilize this ruler also and they just keep becoming available.

Please see Supply List for all requirements.

403 - Fun with Painted Fabric Textures
Tone Haugen-Cogburn

If you have ever  wanted to use fabric paints, but have been a little afraid to get started, then you will love getting to experiment with this fascinating, yet simple medium. There are many different fabric paints on the market, and whether you have tried some or not, this class will show you all the fun you can have , as you will be creating your own unique colors and textures on cotton fabrics. We will cover 4 very different techniques, using metallic paint, salt, rubbings, and landscape style painting, resulting in several yards of beautiful fabric for you to use in future projects. This is not aimed at being a project class, but we might just have to have a small sewing project by the end of the week. Tone will bring all the paint.

Class fee: $50, payable to the teacher in class, will cover any hand-outs, specialty fabrics, interfacings, brushes, cups, and various paints to be used in class for all projects.  Please see Supply List.

406 - Classy Cardigan
Connie Sawdy

Classy Cardigan Jacket

Why not wear your “work of art!”

This classy cardigan jacket is fingertip length, slenderizing in style with a flattering fit.  The pattern can be easily customized to fit any feminine body shape and size.  Due to the unique construction, the jacket is also reversible. The seams are exposed to the outside, finished with bias (quilt binding style) creating a totally completed jacket on the inside also. The jacket has front pockets that are both a handy feature and another place to continue to play with color, texture and, if you wish, add a fancy button feature.

Endless creative possibilities can be explored on both the front and back yokes and sleeves while learning to make and apply seminole piecing and many other decorative techniques to add texture and design to this 'work of art' jacket.  Bring along fun scraps of ribbon, cording, braids, beads or any other decorative trim that enhances your jacket’s color selection. Start with a fat quarter of one of your favorite fabrics and build your jacket’s color palette from there. Please do not be intimidated by the jacket sample photos…you can be as creative or as simplistic as you want. But as your teacher, my goal and hope is for you to find your creative side and let it show off!

Class Fee (includes pattern) - $20.
