Join us on Saturday, June 30th from 10am-4pm for an easy, improvisational Quilt-As-You-Go Workshop by local fiber artist and Artspace former Artist in Residence Sarah Atlee!
Anyone who can use a sewing machine to make a straight stitch is welcome to participate in this beginner to intermediate workshop. Each participant will learn a fast and easy technique that can be used to make all kinds of quilted projects at home, with no need for a long arm quilting machine. Explore simple strip-piecing and quick block construction to make and take your own decorative table runner!
There is no hand sewing required and all components of the table runner can be completed during the workshop.
Participants should bring:
- Sewing machine & power cord
- 1-2 Spools of thread, neutral color
- 2-3 Bobbins of coordinating thread
- 4-5 Fat quarters cut into strips (strips can be different widths, between 1-4", and should be 13" or longer) OR bring your favorite jelly roll (you won't use the whole roll)
- 4 squares of backing fabric, cut to 15x15" (backing fabric will show on the front of the quilt)
- Four squares of batting, cut to 12x12" (any kind of batting, low-loft is best)
- Rotary cutter
- Sharp scissors
- (Optional, but may be useful) Your own iron & extension cord
- (Required) An open mind!
This is an all-day class so you may want to pack a lunch or snacks!
