Rag Quilt Class

  • niche creative studio 4706 Common Street Lake Charles, LA, 70607 United States (map)

Rag quilts are fun and easy projects for people at ANY skill level looking to make quilts. You quilt as you go, which makes this quilt fast and less expensive than a traditional quilt. Rag quilts get their name because one side is smooth, while the other side has the seams out that are ragged.  It's washable & soft too. Once you learn to make this quilt, you will be sewing a ton of them for birthday gifts, baby showers, and graduation gifts! 

You can bring your machine or use one of our Janome Sewist 500s!

October -- Sunday the 14th 1-4pm

November -- TBA

December -- TBA

$40 plus some supplies

*For this class, we make the baby quilt size to ensure you see the process from start to finish.  Larger sizes like the kids or adult stadium quilt sizes can be made as well but will not be finished during class.  Email info@nichecreativestudio.com if you are interested in making a larger size for additional supply info.

Supplies:

~ (5) half yards of coordinating fabric.  *Purchase your fabric from us, and we will cut it for FREE. If you decide to bring in your fabric from home or another store, we'd be happy to cut all of it for you before class for a cutting fee of $10 (any size and includes cutting flannel as well)

~ 1 1/4 yards of flannel in coordinating color (White usually works great for most quilts)

~ Coordinating thread

We will have basic tools for you to use including scissors, pins, measuring tape, etc.*

Prerequisites:

Rag quilts are a great project for sewist at any skill level and make great gifts.  The size we will be sewing measures approximately 40x35" and is good for baby, crib, and kids blankets; however once you learn the basic techniques, you can do this quilt in kids and adult stadium quilt sizes. 

Sewing Machines:

If you have a machine at home, bring it with you. It's always good to sew on a machine you are comfortable with.  If you don't have a machine, we can provide you with one.   If you are bringing your own machine, bring a walking-foot in case you would like to use it for this project.  It is not required but can be useful.

Other Info:

Once you have signed up, we will send any special instruction or supply lists.  You can find all items in our store, so come by and we can help you pick the fabric that will be right for this project. The best part about camps, classes & parties at Niche Fabric & Studio is that by the end you have some super cute items that you created yourself and the know-how to do it again anytime!
