Level: All  
Size: Technique Workshop - Samples Only

Every time Sarah visits Quilters Affair she’s asked why she isn’t teaching hand quilting–she teaches it everywhere else she goes! And so if you ask, you shall receive! This class will be divided into two sections. In the morning, you will learn Sarah’s big stitch hand quilting technique, with a focus on even stitching, ergonomics and using a hoop for professional results. After lunch, you will experiment with techniques including quilting rice stitch, cross stitch, and Boro; and use different and unusual threads such as silk ribbon, kitchen string, and yarn to provide interest and depth. You will leave class with a sampler showing all the different ideas for you to reference in your quilts at home.

Lab Fee: $45 (Quilt sandwiches and other supplies)
