Hooray! The pandemic is finally well enough controlled around here for Studio Stitch to start offering classes again! We’ll still all wear masks, which means classes will be scheduled for half days so we won’t have to figure out lunch. But it is SO encouraging to have the opportunity to be with other quilters again and feel a little bit normal. Most of us have now been vaccinated, so it feels much safer, though we will continue to take care!
Here’s what I’ll be teaching in the next couple of months.
Better Binding Painlessly, May 11. This is a basic binding class that teaches techniques and answers common questions about how to bind a quilt without going crazy doing it.
Little Landscapes, June 1 in the afternoon and June 2 in the morning. This is an introduction to landscape quilting. We make little landscapes in class to learn the basics so you’ll be ready to make landscape quilts of any size on your own.
Plaidish, June 10 afternoon and June 11 morning. This is a free pattern available from Kitchen Table Quilting. It’s a great way to learn about color, value, and matching the corners on tiny pieces.There’s more information about all of these classes, plus many others, on the Studio Stitch website. If you’re near Greensboro, I hope to see you 🙂
How nice that your favorite quilt shop is offering classes again, and that you’ll teach! We don’t have a shop with enough space for classes of more than six people, and those haven’t begun classes again anyway. I really miss teaching, and hope that something comes up for me. You teach a nice variety of topics. Have fun being with quilters again!
Thanks. I hope your shop recovers enough to have classes soon.
How wonderful! I would love to take all of these classes, especially the mini-landscape. Hopefully soon, I will feel confident enough to enter the local quilt shops.
Yes, it’s pretty exciting to go into an actual shop again!
And to think, this place is just down the street from you now! What a deal.
Yes, it’s great to have a quilt shop in the neighborhood!
What happy news. Lucky students!
Yes, we are all happy to start getting out of quarantine, though still taking precautions.
That is fantastic! If I lived in the area I would take the Little Landscapes class!
The little landscapes are so fun. Shall I send you a list of my favorite landscape quilt books? I know you love books 😄
