Fall Classes Scheduled at Quiltworks NW

I'm really pleased with my offerings at Quilt Works this fall. 
Beads are a Blast
 10:30-1:30 Oct 27
Beads are a great addition to quilts and garments. Learn how to use beads to their best effect, what to look for when you shop, which tools are helpful, and how to place, sew and lock these little beauties onto the project you bring to class. We will also be making fancy fringes and dangles!.

Paint Stick Magic
2:00-5:00 Oct 27
Make elegant fabric with the look of airbrushing! Paint sticks applied to cotton or silk is fun, permanent and has an exceptionally short learning curve. Come play with paint sticks while learning the tricks the professionals use in this informative hands-on workshop for both quilt and clothing makers.
The Decorative Threads Experience
10:30-1:30 Oct 28  
Thread is no longer a ‘Plain Jane’ necessity - it’s now available in many luscious colors and types. Steering your
way through the sea of threads out there can be a bit daunting. Experiment with your own machine while you learn how to match thread to the appropriate needle, make the tension setting your best friend and troubleshoot your way to fun and fancy sewing.

Super Fast Binding and Piping
2:00-5:00 Oct 28
Is binding the quilt your least favorite part?  Bindings and piping are a snap with this no-fail completely machine-stitched method.  In this class you will be making a sample to take home to keep as a ‘how to’ example for your own quilts. Binding will never be the same again!
