What I’ll Be Teaching

In the first quarter of 2023, I’m teaching a scrap quilt, a beginning quilting class, a special binding class, and Quilt As You Go. All classes are through Studio Stitch, and you can get sign-up information here if interested. Meanwhile, here are my notes on each class.

Superfans!

Yes, I’ve shown this quilt recently, and I’m teaching it in a two-part class on January 27 and 28. That’s a Friday afternoon and a Saturday morning. This means everyone can leave a sewing machine set up between classes but have a night of rest half way through.

Beginning Quilting

Probably not directly relevant to anybody reading this, but it will start February 11 and run for 6 Saturdays. For the first time we have a book to be used with the class so folks will have a reference at home.

Improve Your Binding

In this class we will explore several ways to improve binding techniques as well as some nice (easy) embellishments for binding. One of my friends calls this a “game changer” for binding.

Quilt As You Go (QAYG)

It seems that most quilters want to at least try QAYG. There are a number of ways to do it. I will teach the way I think is most effective and show some of the other techniques as well. As a bonus, we’ll be making the Bauhaus pattern by Zen Chic as we learn the techniques for QAYG.

I liked this pattern by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic so much that I made it twice

I’m sure most of my readers are nowhere near Greensboro (North Carolina, U.S.A.), so won’t be taking these classes. However, if you have related questions I’ll try to answer them. If you do live near Greensboro, join us and have fun! Further information is on the Studio Stitch site, here.

  1. I”m so happy for you to have a teaching line-up! Teaching is so enjoyable, isn’t it? Sounds like you’ll have a nice range of classes, and will no doubt be making new friends as you share “ah-ha!” moments. Don’cha love it when that happens?

  2. Well, the binding class is of interest to me and am putting it in a ‘to consider’ list for scheduled events, 2023. (I looked it up on the class site for dates and times already) I could easily drive there, take the class then drive back. We have a few caregiving dates in Albuquerque that are open ended at this moment in time, hence the ‘consideration’ listing.
    Anyway, in the next few weeks I’ll be emailing you about the suggestions you mentioned in your CCard, too. Like I posted, all this is part of ‘Taking Stock’, ya know?
    So nice to have you as a Carolina connection!
    🙂
