Beginner Patchwork Workshop
If you've been wanting to learn to sew patchwork quilts, this is the class for you! In this three-hour workshop, instructor Giuseppe Ribaudo will take students on a tour of beginner patchwork -- the process of sewing small pieces of fabric together to make a larger composition.
In this class you'll learn:
- Beginner-level patchwork basics
- How to accurately cut fabric with a rotary cutter and cutting mat
- How to assemble your fabric pieces (you must have machine sewing experience; see below)
- How to iron in quilting
- The specific cutting and assembly methods used in a simple quilt block
- Each student will make one complete quilt block, approx 12"
- We will provide cutting mats, rotary cutters and rulers to share.
- Each student will have access to their own sewing machine courtesy of BERNINA of America.
Please note this is not a learn-to-sew class. Students must have basic machine sewing knowledge and be comfortable using a sewing machine. If you do not know how to sew, please take our Sewing 101 class as a prerequisite to this class.
Fabric will be available to purchase during class at a 10% discount to workshop attendees.
