Quilting (Advanced Beginning)

  • Dates: Tuesday, 7:15-9:15pm, 10 Weeks
  • Tuition: $80
  • Instructor: Audrey Hyvonen

As you get more comfortable with your foundational skills in quilting, it’s fun to venture out on your own.  In this classroom space you will have the opportunity to try out new designs and patterns of your own choosing with support and guidance. Each week our advanced beginning quilting class will start together with a quick check-in to assess project trends and plot out optional mini-lessons that might serve the group best that day. We’ll do a mid-class 2 minute stretch break to keep our bodies primed for life-long sewing. For those that want to practice their free-motion quilting skills there will be optional drills to do in class or request as homework between classes. Practice is encouraged!

Basic machine sewing skills are required for this class. You will be happier if you already know how to use a rotary cutter, cutting mat and have piecing, quilting and finishing experience on a simple square. We will plot the course topics based on the desires of the class.  Requests already include: quick start-to-finish projects, UFO (unfinished objects) and WIP (works in progress) support, free-motion quilting opportunities, and review of foundational skills as needed.  You can take advanced beginning quilting more than once!
