Machine Quilting

Too many quilt tops and not enough time? Tired of machine quilting “in the ditch”? Well, drop those feed dogs and take off with all the lovely quilting stencils that you really want to use. This hands-on class will focus on freehand quilting with information and demonstrations of quilting with a darning foot, nylon thread and various other specialty threads. Proper techniques for quilting full sized quilts will also be discussed. Students must know how to remove, cover or lower feed dogs and must have a darning foot

Paper Piecing

Have you been eyeing all the very cute paper pieced wall hangings by MH Designs in the shop and want to learn how to make them?

Choose from the kits we have or pick your own fabrics.

English Paper Piecing

English Paper Piecing (EPP) continues to be popular and I believe the current method of piece preparation is at least partly responsible for this surge.  If you have not attempted this method recently, now is the time to start.  Kits for the New Hexagon quilt are available from the shop.  Join us for an introduction to EPP, and, if you have already attempted it, but still have questions, join us for helpful tips in completing your project.

Are you still wondering what to do with all of the T-shirts or old clothes you have saved over the years? Maybe it’s the kids’sports, or a special occasion coming up, or perhaps cherished memories of someone no longer here. This class will demonstrate the techniques for fabric preparation, block design, and products and tools available to truly customize your quilts. Several ideas, patterns and free flow designs will be discussed and shown. You will have the opportunity to design and sew 2 to 3 twelve inch blocks during class, each with a different technique — or all the same, your choice.
