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.

Cost: $ 40.00
This bag is popular for gifting. It is quick to make and comes in five sizes, from itty bitty to extra large. If you are intimidated by zippers, don't worry because Jeanne will show you how it is done! You will make one in class (we recommend starting with the larger size), however, these bags can be addictive and many students make several sets of all five bags. They nest together and make wonderful gifts, that is if you want to give them away and not keep them for yourself. This is a really fun class and you will love Jeanne.

Cost: $ 60.00
This age-old method of quilting is still popular today...probably because it is portable, economical, and offers so many creative options. Jane will teach you the technique and show you many ways to use it.

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
This is a beautiful quilt that is done in strips. You can go scrappy or coordinate your fabrics as you would like. This class meets twice. It is just it more challenging than the Yellow Brick Road class, but it is a fun challenge for a beginning quilter.

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.

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.

This is a comprehensive course designed to guide the student through the process of making a quilt. We offer several classes that will help you to create and complete a basic quilt pattern. This course is more extensive. You will learn about basic quilting techniques that cover rotary cutting, making blocks, making blocks faster, pressing, choosing fabrics, quilting, and binding. We will talk about different tools that make creating blocks easier and more successful. When you are finished with the course you will have what you need to design a sampler quilt. What's more you will hopefully be inspired and understand that you don't have to have a specific pattern to be creative and make a quilt. You just need a little confidence and inspiration. One student has described the class as being a class with a mentor who answers questions and inspires learning. Are you up for the challenge? You don't need to have prior experience or knowledge for this class. Just a desire to learn.
