Beyond Stitchin' Mission

If you're interested in continuing to learn about quiltmaking, consider participating in Beyond Stitchin' Mission lessons. In small groups of four to six students, techniques and project lessons will be offered in my home for a fee. 

Possible techniques include these machine techniques:
  • piecing squares and rectangles - to improve accuracy
  • piecing diagonally (examples: Flying Geese or Pinwheel Blocks)
  • binding - improving skill, and other methods
  • how to make a t-shirt quilt
  • machine applique - using fusible web, or glue methods
  • foundation paper piecing
And these hand techniques:
  • piecing
  • applique - needleturn, back-basting, or blanket stitch techniques
  • English paper piecing
  • Embroidery or "Redwork" - combined with piecing and/or applique
On Thursday, July 9, at either 12:30 pm or 6:30 pm, you have the opportunity to get-together with other interested quilters to review and discuss the techniques and projects you'd like to learn. Based on these conversations and response to a survey, classes will be decided. If you'd like to complete a survey, or join us, please contact me. Send an email or post a comment here.

Please note: Participating in the survey or get-together does not obligate you to take Beyond Stitchin' Mission lessons.
