Progressive Quilting

This class is for individuals who are familiar with, and who have practiced, quilting on a domestic machine. Deb will introduce her method of Progressive Quilting, in which machine quilting is done as the quilt is assembled. This eliminates the need to roll the quilt to fit in the space to the right of the needle. Intrigued? Join Deb for more info. Prerequisite is Deb’s Machine Quilting class or machine quilting experience.

Cost: $ 50.00
Radiant Lone Star

Let Deb show you how to make that special Lone Star wall hanging that you have been afraid to try. Deb will help with seam matching to obtain the perfect 8-pointed star center. Pattern purchase and pre-class preparation required

T-Shirt Quilt

Construct an easy memory quilt using old, but clean t-shirts, new t-shirts or a combo of both. Learn how to place unusual items on the quilt block, make a 2 patch block and a 4 patch block. T-shirt quilts can range from wall hangings to king size quilts.

Class Notes

If you are interested in taking a class and are unable to attend, just find a friend or a group of friends and LSQW will schedule a time with the teacher so you may take the class. Please purchase all materials for your class ahead of time.  Due to copyright issues no sharing of patterns or books during class will be allowed. 

Please arrive at class fifteen minutes early to allow time for setup.  Please do not arrive any earlier than this time!

Many classes require some prep work to be done before class. Arriving unprepared will prevent your class from proceeding smoothly. Please be sure to review the entire pattern/book before class.

BSS (basic sewing supplies) are required for most classes (scissors, pins, rulers, thread, et cetera). Double-check to make sure you have your foot pedal and cord for your machine.

As a courtesy to your fellow students please silence your cell phones or set them to vibrate. If you need to take a call during class, please step outside.

We ask that you refrain from wearing strong perfumes.
