Teen Quilt @ My Sewing Room

A quilt class for those in Junior and Senior High. We'll start at the very beginning with choosing quilt design and fabrics and make a lap size quilt from start to finish.

Quilters will learn how to cut safely using rotary cutting tools, how to sew accurate seams and how to press properly. The quilters will also learn how to layer and quilt their quilts and add machine sewn binding.

Longarmers Social Club @ My Sewing Room

Do you have a longarm at home? Do you rent one occasionally to quilt your quilts? Do you want to learn more about longarming and gain more confidence?

Join me each month as we look at some of the most common issues of Longarm Quilting as well as learning new quilt designs and how to use the many tools available to us.

Each monthly meeting will have a general focus or topic and lots of question and answer time.

Although we'll be working on the Handi Quilter frame at My Sewing Room, no one will be excluded and we'll all learn lots!

Birthstones Block of the Month @ Pinheads Quilting Company

Are you ready for some fun piecing? Create sparkling Gem blocks using MJ Kinman's Freezer paper piecing techniques. These blocks are easy to sew, but do require a little bit of organization!  If you know me, you know I like things that are easy to sew, yet look really challenging. These blocks are it!


This class is offered at Pinheads Quilting Company. There are 12 blocks. We'll start in February and work on each month's block in class.  Each block has a little something extra regarding piecing techniques. Join us for 1 month and make a wallhanging or pillow top or for all 12 months for a fantastic quilt. These blocks are easy enough to sew for beginners and challenging enough for the more experienced. 

I will be sure to teach you something new each month!!!!

Pro-Stitcher Social Club @ My Sewing Room

Handi Quilter's Pro-Stitcher program allows a quilter to create beautiful designs on quilts. In this monthly club, we'll look at basic and not so basic features of the Pro-Stitcher program. We'll use the simulation mode on the tablets to walk through steps then move to the longarm frame and stitch out our designs.

Owners (of all experiences) and non-owners are welcome. Learn about the program before you buy.

Managing Quilts on a Frame at Meadow Rose

Many quilters struggle with getting their quilt loaded on a frame and keeping the quilt nice and square.

Let me show you some simple tricks and tips to start with a straight quilt and end with a straight quilt.

In this class we'll look at quilt top construction, quilt back preparation, loading on a longarm frame (with a few variations) and look at tips and tricks for keeping things straight and square. We'll deal with those pesky wavy borders and give you confidence for quilting your next quilt.
