Retreat
A retreat is a time of refreshment, direction, and renewal. A time to grow, explore, and discover more of who we are as quilt makers. The retreat can be directed making a quilt in my style (Twilight in the Bronx, or Moon Over Manhattan) or something you’ve wanted to work on in a focused way. A focus on thread, batting, and color; how they work together to create, and You develop our own personal style in a quilt.

Beginner Free Motion Machine Quilting
You can free-motion quilting on your home sewing machine. It’s easy when you know the tricks and tips that the “pros” use. We will learn to pair thread weight and needle size, when to adjust tension, and how shoving a queen size quilt into a 6” harp. This class covers the basics: stitch in the ditch, thread burying, straight lines and curves, moving right through to feathers. Join the machine quilting club!
Full Day

Teri thank you so much for the wonderful class, I feel so lucky to have been in your class I can’t wait to put my five hundred hours in to be able to do a better job. I just loved the class and you – Sylvia

Doodle Your way to Better Quilting

Beginner/Intermediate

Doodling is a great way to figure out  and practice quilting motifs. We use printed quilt blocks to doodle and practice feathers, swirls, arcs, and more. We will draw with both our dominant and non-dominant hands for understanding the motion of each motif. Doodling is a great way to come up with a quilting plan.
Half Day or Full Day.
Full Day part of the day on sewing machines – kits available.

The Impractical Color Wheel

Beginner/Intermediate

A color wheel is one of the best tools we can use in quilting however it can feel a bit overwhelming so let’s break it down to the basics focusing on color neighborhoods (next-door, across the street). We will embrace the color we love, and learn how to use it well in our machine quilting. We will explore thread weight and the difference between open and dense stitching.

Full or Multi Day.

Thank you so much for helping me with my quilting question. My quilting is looking so much better since I’m using your starting and stopping method. No more weird snarls or stray thread giving me a headache. Thanks again…you rock!!! – Jenice
