AZ Intro to Quilting



Intro to Quilting - $25

Quilting can be a wonderful experience. It can also be the most frustrating
thing you have ever tried. This class is designed for someone who has never sat in
front of a sewing machine, or someone just starting that needs to understand the
techniques a little better. If you recently purchased a sewing machine, or
planning to rent one and would like assistance in getting familiar with it contact
me to set up a time prior to class.
Quilting can also be very expensive. For this class please don’t run out and buy
everything on the supply list. If you have the items, great bring them. If you don’t
have the items, I will have everything to share with you (including material). I
would hate for this to be your first class; you buy everything on the supply list
only to find out quilting is not for you. So, bring what you have (or nothing) and
the only cost to you is the cost of the class and the sewing machine rental.
Sew no excuse to not get started.

Intended for adults & teens 14 & older.

Housekeeping: Arrive on time with a great attitude and the promise to laugh at

emergency call (spouses calling to say they are picking up the car and you have
fabric stashed is considered an emergency and we will assist in removing the
fabric). Bring your lunch and snacks (no loud food), there is a cute coffee shop
across the street that sells great coffee.
