Beginner’s quilting class in Beckley, WV

March 15, 2016

Beginning in May, 2016, I will be offering a Beginner’s quilting class at the Hobby Lobby in Beckley, WV. We will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 pm on May 3, 10,17, 24. In the class, students will learn a variety of piecing techniques to get them started on making quilts.  We will explore 2-3 blocks each of the first 2 weeks. Students will then produce more of those blocks as homework, so that the third week, they will learn to put the quilt top together, using sashing techniques and learn to determine border size, cut borders and assembly of the top. The final week of class, students will learn to sandwich their quilt in preparation for a trip to the person who will quilt the final product, or for these students to hand or free-motion quilt it themselves.

Students who don’t get their quilt blocks made will continue to work on additional blocks and improving their skills. No one needs to feel left behind. Each person has their own pace in sewing and quilting. There is no reason to feel that you are “behind” if you don’t reach the final step in a single session of the class. I do offer classes very frequently in Beckley and if yo udon’t finish in one session, it’s important to remember that there is ALWAYS more to learn in quilting.

We will cover some traditional quilting techniques and some quick-quilting techniques. I teach both adults and children, so there is no reason to think that you are unteachable. Often, when adults feel that way, they are just defeating themselves with that though process, and fear of stepping into something. Let’s work on quilting together and get you into the fun.
