10 Reasons to Take a Class at In Stitches
Most obvious- to learn a new skill or technique. Taking a class with an expert teacher can explain to you in a way you can understand with individual attention. We all learn a little differently and a good instructor will be able to help you understand the concept.
Refresh or perfect a skill. If it’s been a while since you’ve quilted or you’re struggling with a tool or technique a class is a great way to get back in the saddle.
The devil is in the details. In class you may learn a new way to pin, get that perfect quarter inch seam or learn to spin your seams.
In class, you get to see the fabric combinations of all the other students. I’m always amazed by the different styles and colors chosen for projects.
Sometimes there is show and tell- an inspiration for future projects!
Make new friends, hang out with other quilters, share ideas and laugh!
Learn how to use those specialty rulers that are available to quilters now.
A quilter will only grow in their skills if they step out of their comfort zone and learn a new technique or pattern.
Learn a new hobby- wool applique is hot, hot, hot! If you want a hand stitching project, then a wool class is in your future.
When you are finished with your class, the sense of pride and accomplishment can’t be beat! A great springboard for future lessons.
Learn how to quilt! You will learn how to use the tools safely, how to cut accurately, how to sew 1/4", how to mark and quilt your runner and how to make and apply your own binding. You will have a finished table runner by the end of the day! Students get 10% off all tools and fabrics for this class. Pattern supplied in class. Stop in for class list requirements.

Have a few jelly rolls laying around and you don't know what to do with them? How about a soft, cushy rug under your feet? All you'll need is a jelly roll, 2 1/2" strips of batting (we have a product that is cut for you already), a machine, matching thread and a walking foot. You will need lots of thread for this project! 4 small spools or 2 large spools will work. You need about 10 bobbins filled for the class. You will not get the entire rug done in one class. If you have arthritis and weak hands, I would not recommend this project.
