Rotary Cutting

Come and learn how rotary cutting tools can save you time and give you better, more accurate results! Jean will cover the proper use, care, and safety of equipment as well as fabric preparation and terminology. Plus, Jean will share lots of her tips! Even if you’ve used a rotary cutter before, chances are that if you haven’t been shown the correct way you aren’t using them in the most effective manner. They can seem intimidating but are essential! Learning how to use and care for your cutter will take the fear away. This class will also cover the use and care of cutting mats and the ins and outs of picking the correct ruler for your projects. This is a fun and informative hands on class.

Beginner Quilting

Step into the wonderful world of quilting! You’ll be guided through every step, from picking your fabric to finishing your quilt top. Starting with the basics you will learn why the perfect ¼” seam is so important and why “pressing” and “ironing” are not the same things.  With the techniques you learn and the confidence you gain, you will soon be calling yourself a quilter and be busy planning your next project.  Layering, quilting, and binding techniques will also be discussed in this class; however, the focus of the class is the completion of your quilt top. The Rotary Cutting class is a prerequisite.
