Beginners Quilting Class Sept. 2015

August 13, 2015
Our BEGINNERS QUILTING CLASS is only about three and half weeks away and I am so excited that you are coming!
September 8, 15, 22, & 29. 

On our first night together you will not need to bring anything to class but yourself! That should be easy enough, right? Ha!

We will go over the basics of quilt making and you will pick out the fabrics for your quilt. I will have all the tools we need for this first night in studio for you to use. 

On the night of class you will need to purchase your kit for the class ($65.00). As always, the classes are free at EllaKates. 

A very good book for you to have on hand as you begin your journey is "Your Very First Quilt Book or it Should Be" and I have those in stock if you want to get one, but it is not required. (21.95) This is one of my two favorite go to books that I have personally used through the years. Our pattern for the quilt we will be making is in this book. 

Of course you are welcome to make your quilt just like the sample using red and aqua fabrics (looks great with Fiesta dishes). But if you do not prefer these colors you can choose different fabrics. I also have a sample made from Christmas fabrics and we have some cute snowman fabric in the shop.  This is something you might want to think about before class. Of course we will help you choose fabrics the first night of class if you like.

If you know of anyone else who might like to join us, please spread the word. Space is limited but we do have room for more at this time. 

I am so excited that you are coming! You are going to love YOUR VERY OWN JOURNEY OF QUILTING!!!
