Not so sure of your sewing skills, but want to quilt?
- Want to learn about Modern Quilting, but not so much traditional ?
- Consider yourself a beginner at quilting ?
- Want to learn the basics ?
- Want to learn how to choose “Modern” colorways ?
- Love all the modern quilts you see online ? (ahem-Pinterest!)
- Want to join a fun sewing club for beginners ?
Meet at Stitch each month for a sewing date with a modern twist! Bring your machine and stitch a modern block, meet other beginner seamsters – get inspired & have some fun! Some machine sewing experience is suggested, such as winding your bobbin & threading your machine so you don’t get lost in the dust! (If you’re an absolute beginner we suggest Sewing 101 – hobo tote bag offered each month.)
Our first “Date” is October 12th, 6-9pm – we’re really excited to get started and we have some fun plans up our sleeves, too! We have an event page on Facebook, so be sure to friend us and rsvp!
$10 fee includes a lesson and kit for a new block each month and a drawing ticket for a sewing notion! We’ll be using the book, The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman as reference – it’s an excellent guide for beginners, and it has tons of cool patterns, too! (Let us know if you would like to reserve a copy)
Space is limited (it gets very cozy here-quickly!) so be sure to call ahead and reserve your space at least 2 days in advance! Plan on bringing your machine, be sure it’s in good working condition. (bobbins, scissors & pins, too) Bring your ideas, too, because it’s your club!
We’re looking forward to sharing our quilty enthusiasm with newbie quilters and hope you can make it !
