We have had soooo much interest in our Handi Quilter event.  It will be held Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12.  Sue Patten, award-winning longarm quilter, will be teaching the classes and has a very long credential list! The classes to be held on Friday are:

9 AM - 12 PM - Stepping Stones to Quilting Your First Quilt   ($40)
1 AM - 4 PM - Start Simple, Expand to Amazing  ($40)

You can read all about the Friday Handi Quilter classes in last week's newsletter (June 7) HERE!

Saturday"s classes are as follows:

9 AM - 12 PM - Ruler Mania -($40) If you love precision and consistency in your quilting designs, you will love using design rulers and templates!  These handy tools assist in placing designs accurately and stitching them out precisely.  Learn to handle rulers and templates safely with the ruler base, and how to achieve accuracy with the markings.  She will also show straight line quilting, stitch in the ditch right angles and cross hatching. An overview of the wide variety of Handi Quilter rulers will inspire you to new design heights. 

1 PM - 4 PM - All About Feathers - ($40) Feather designs always add a touch of class to any quilt, evoking a positive response from any viewer.  Learn to draw and stitch these beautiful elements in many different styles, from traditional to contemporary.  Then learn how to fit them in specific geometric spaces, how to turn corners, make feather wreaths and how to echo and add fills.  It's easier than you think!
