Join the slow stitching movement by adding large hand stitches to your quilt. You can cover your entire quilt in hand stitching, or just add bits here and there. Jane will help you plan a design for whatever quilt you bring to class and will show you just how enjoyable it can be to embellish your project by hand. Bring a quilt that you want to embellish or bring an 18 inch quilt sandwich to practice your stitching. Examples of Big Stitch in the store: The Paint Lake Quilt and Urban Abacus are embellished with Big Stitches.

With 14 fat quarters and two borders, Jeanne Phipps will show you how to construct this "no waste" quilt. The technique used is square-in-a-square or also called, "on point" blocks. The fabrics can be chosen from one fabric line or it can be scrappy. You can use a different range of values or they can be muted fabrics that blend. Just remember that the fabrics in the squares will be on the diagonal so watch out for directional prints.

Did you know that you can do amazing things with just one fabric? The techniques we will use in the class come from a book called One Block Wonder. We will make kaleidoscope blocks from one fabric and from these blocks we will make an amazing one-of-a-kind quilt top. This class will meet twice. In the first class we will learn how to make the blocks and in the second we will design the top and learn how to put it all together.

Jane Ewald, creative hand stitcher and quilter, loves to find unusual projects like this vintage-style quilt! She says both confident beginners and more advanced quilters will enjoy making it. Inspired by a design by Heather French called French Roses, Jane wanted to try a rag-quilt approach. You'll love the simple raw-edge applique process. She'll show you how to use either free motion or regular machine stitching to quilt each block separately, then join them with exposed seam allowances for a shabby chic style. If you want that extra cuddly heirloom feel, wash your quilt on a high agitating cycle, dry it, and start snipping threads!

Cost: $ 60.00
The Cube is a precious "stand up" bag with many uses. You have a choice of making the small bag or the one inch taller one. You will learn a new way of sewing in a zipper; and how to add stays which hold the bag open. The wide mouth makes it versatile for many projects.

Come take a class with Stacia to make this fun quilt pattern! This pattern is beginner friendly and works great with any fabric combination. It can be made larger or smaller very easily and would be a darling baby quilt by just making a few of the blocks. The squares and rectangles are large and good for showcasing a larger print. This quilt looks scrappy and it would be difficult to keep the orientation of directional fabrics, so keep that in mind when you choose your fabric. If using directional fabric, some of your fabric will be sideways or upside down, so keep that in mind if that sort of thing bothers you. If you'd like to make the same quilt that Stacia made, there are kits available at Stitchers Garden. This is a great class for new quilters to work on their piecing and ironing skills. You can lay it out just like the pattern or make up your own fun design. This class is excellent for beginners or skilled quilters.

Cost: $ 60.00
Join Jane to learn curved piecing! You'll use the Quick Curve ruler to cut the curved pieces oversized, then trim down the blocks for a very forgiving process. Jane chose Tilda's Bloomville collection to make her sample. She then embellished it with big stitch quilting. You can learn big stitch quilting in Jane's upcoming Big Stitch quilting class.

Cost: $ 60.00
This is a great project for beginning quilters. You will use fat quarters and learn how to strip piece. It is a fun and fast quilt to make. You will meet twice to learn how to create the block and then learn how to put it all together.
