Course Description:  Beginners Series is a course designed for the true quilting/sewing beginner.  Don’t have a machine we got you covered. Each class offers a new, progressive skill building technique fast-tracking your way to quilting. The only pre-requisite for this course is to have the desire to learn.  


The series is also attractive for the new(ish) to intermediate beginner quilter who wants to up-level their skills and learn additional techniques.  


The course is comprised of 6 total class sessions.  Each class is a stand-alone session.  However, there will be times when you may have to finish things at home. During each session we will focus on a new skill/term.  


You will have one week between sessions to practice and perfect the newly learned skill allowing you to complete a new quilt top on your own. Doing so will allow you to practice sewing in between classes.


The goal is to keep sewing, soaking it all up and sewing in between sessions. Challenging yourself with learning new techniques. the classes will be once a week on Wednesday from 6pm to 8ish pm– this will allow you to practice your newly learned techniques before moving on to the next higher-skilled technique.
