Oct. 17th -- Intro to Modern Quilting


Quilting has been around for a long time, and new life has been brought to this beautiful craft through Modern Quilting.  Modern quilting is a fresh approach reflecting each quilter's personality and personal style.  These quilts are often called chic and contemporary, even an update from a traditional style.  For this Modern Quilting Basics Class, we are going back to the beginning with an Intro to Quilting. 

Class 1: Common Quilting Tools and Materials, Review of Moda Love Pattern, and Choosing Materials

Class 2: Cutting Fabric, Piecing, and Quilt Assembly

     Adult sewists are welcome to this class.  A basic knowledge of sewing is required for this class like threading, running a bobbin and sewing a simple seam.  Don't know how to do these things? Come Open Sew with us! Call the studio 477-3810 for more details.

     Additional Info:

     With our classes come use of our sewing machines and basic sewing tools; however, if you own your own machine, please feel free to bring it.  It's always better to get practice on a machine that you will be using at home and are more comfortable with.  Please let us know in advance if you will be bringing your own machine.

    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! Once you have signed up, we will send any special instruction or supply lists.
