Knowledge/Skill level: Anyone/any skill level – you only need to know how to use your sewing machine. If you are unsure of how to use your machine, call 231-734-5863 so we can set up a class prior to teach you the basics.
If you’re new to sewing or haven’t had the nerve to jump in, this is a great way to get your feet wet and test the waters. Small projects like pillows are a great way to try new techniques without investing the time or money needed to complete an entire quilt.
February: Flower Valley Pillow. This is a fun technique which can give you 5 units to either make 5 pillow covers or 1 pillow cover and a table runner or small wall hanging. If you really enjoy it, you can expand it to a full size quilt. The example in the picture also uses couching for an added decorative touch.
Future class include embroidery, applique, alternative methods of a traditional sewing technique.
