Sunday's - Click on class title for dates - 12:30pm-1:30pm Class, 1:30pm-3:30pm Open Sew w/ Camas Learn hand quilting techniques in this seven session course. Hand quilting is a great way to finish a vintage top or to make a reproduction quilt or any quilt really feel nostalgic and special. In this series, stitcher's will learn about batting, thimbles, needles, thread; when to hand quilt and when not. Stitcher's will hand quilt a design on whole cloth to complete a pillow top while learning how to mark and baste their quilt using a rocking stitch and stab and jab. Open Sew is included in the class price; however, if you are an experienced hand quilter or a previous Learn to Hand Quilt Class participant, you may attend Open Sew only. Open Sew participants will receive help basting and marking quilts while enjoying hand quilting together. Price for Open Sew only - $25
