Salt Lake Sewing and Quilting Classes

We are in the middle of a very exciting class season. We've started our Block of the Month Class and have several more of the QuiltSmart Club classes ahead. Within the next two months we have a Tatting class, an Adult Beginning Sewing class, a Beginning Quilting Class, and a Machine Applique class taught by the very talented and nationally recognized teacher, Carmen Geddes! Take a look below for more:

Tatting I Class: 

While Tatting teacher, Maquel, may look young she is indeed very talented! She learned the antique lace art of tatting from her grandmother starting from a young age. It is refreshing to see an art that is quickly disappearing being revived by a talented young woman. Maquel says her favorite part of tatting is that you only have to learn one knot which leads to infinite creative possibilities. She proves to be a very patient and kind teacher who has gained a steady group of ladies coming back to learn more tatting tips and technique class after class.

This class is being offered Fridays starting January 24th and will meet once every other week from 11:30 am to 1:30. The class costs $40 plus the cost of supplies. There are opportunities to continue learning Tatting after this class has ended, including beading and jewelry making using tatting (as seen above), in Tatting II and Advanced Tatting classes

Beginning Adult Sewing I

If you've always wanted to learn to sew, there's never a wrong time to start learning. Join Peggy in a patient learning environment as you learn basic machine care, straight line sewing, ruffles, buttons, button holes and zippers while sewing 3 beautiful and fun pillows. This class meets once every week for four weeks and costs $40 plus the cost of supplies. Class is held on Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 8:30 starting February 6th.

Machine Applique with Carmen Geddes

This is a truly exciting class at Fabric Center; we've never had just a distinguished and nationally recognized teacher holding a class at Fabric Center! Carmen Geddes was awarded Teacher of the Year at HMQS 2013. She specializes in teaching classes at quilting shows as well as quilting retreats. To get a better idea of Carmen and her work, check out her interview with MQResource when she was named Quilter in the Spotlight.

Learn Carmen's tips and techniques for machine applique that looks as pretty and polished as needle turn hand applique by joining this class on Saturday, February 8th from 1 pm to 5 pm for only $25!

Don't delay, these classes are coming up soon. Give us a call at (801)561-8726 or come in today to sign up and sew the seeds of your creativity!
