Salt Lake, Utah Winter/Spring Sewing and Quilting Classes

We have begun our Winter/Spring 2015 sewing and quilting class season and we couldn't be more excited for the new additions to our roster. Not only have we brought back our most popular and fundamental classes, but we've also added a few completely new offerings! Read on to get more details about our up coming classes --

Youth Sewing for Home-schooled Children:

We have traditionally offered our youth sewing groups in the evenings once school is out. However, this year we are offering a youth sewing class in the afternoon designed specifically for those students who are taught from home!

In this class, students will learn sewing from the ground up by first learning the different tools needed to sew and how to hand sew. They will then quickly move on to learning to sew with a sewing machine and will begin to make their first projects including a pillowcase and a pair of pajama pants. The class is designed to make students feel successful and build confidence each week with their patient and caring teacher, Peggy. 

Classes are held on Thursdays from 1-3 every week except on the third Thursday of every month. Class costs $10 per sessions and does not include supplies. 

Cuddle Star Pillow:

Learn how to easily make this cuddly and soft star pillow using only 17 squares of cuddle/minky fabric, two buttons and some stuffing! While it may look difficult, this is an easy project and will be a favorite gift to your children or grandchildren. 

This class will be held Saturday, February 29th from 10 am to 2 pm and costs only $20, not including supplies. 

Tuffet Class:

Little Miss Muffet had one and now you can too! Create your own foot tuffet in this brand new and exciting class taught by Joyce and Pat from Bouncing Bobbins Quiltworks! In this class, you will first learn to quilt your tuffet top using a jelly roll. Then you will learn how to put together and cover your tuffet! 

This class is taught on two Saturdays in March, the 14th from 12:30 to 3:30 and the 28th from 12:30 to 4:30. Homework is required in between classes. This class is $105 and includes your pattern and your tuffet kit. The class fee does not include your fabric or your wooden feet. There is a 10 person maximum for this class, so sign up ASAP! 

My Favorite Bag:

Learn to make this adorable bow bag with plenty of room and pockets for all your needs -- as well as plenty of style! Once you've made one, you will end up making more for your friends and family; this isn't called "My Favorite Bag" for nothing! 
Class will be held on 2 Thursdays in March, the 19th and the 26th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Class costs $25, not including supplies. 

Block of the Month:

We are trying something new this year and are offering two Block of the Month classes: a traditional Block of the Month class taught in our classroom and a Block of the Month class entirely taught online! 

Our in-store Block of the Month features Peggy's design featuring the Moda Love quilt pattern as the center medallion surrounded by 12 unique quilt blocks. The quilt will also feature a ribbon outer border! This class starts in February and you can choose to attend the second Wednesday of every month from 7 to 8 pm or the second Saturday of every month from 10 to 11 am. Class costs $26 for the year and does not include the cost of supplies. 

Our online Block of the Month class features the quilt Playful Pinwheels, designed by Sandra Stradley! It features 12 different styles of pinwheel blocks, done twice in different color combinations to add fun and flair! You will be able to sign up for the class soon on our online webstore - you will receive a downloadable file with information about how to access our private class website which will have each pattern published once a month as well as little surprises to the site such as tutorials, recipes and more! 

This is just a small sampling of some of the exciting sewing and quilting classes we have coming up.
