Beginners—Start to Finish    $80

CL-begstart Saturday(s)
August 12, 19 2017 10:00Am-4:30Pm (Full-Day class)

There will not be a Wednesday Evening Beginners—Start to Finish class this Summer 2017.

If you always have wanted to learn how to make a quilt - come and join us for four relaxing Tuesday mornings - or, two relaxing Saturdays.

This class will teach you how to make a quilt from start to finish, including straight-line machine quilting and finishing the quilt with a binding. This is a true beginner's class.

This is an ideal class for "busy" people -- almost no homework! Also, a good class for a young person who is experimenting to see if he/she enjoys sewing.

Note: This class requires that you have a sewing machine, at home, for any necessary homework.
