Quilting 101 with Laura Greene

We are so excited to be offering quilting classes at Common Thread!

 

Your instructor, Laura Greene, picked up hand quilting in the 80's and has recently embraced modern and art quilting. She is excited to be sharing her talents at Common Thread and is looking forward to enabling others in their love of creating handmade textiles. This class is an excellent way for beginners who are curious about patchwork and quilting to try their hand at it by making a 15" x 17" table runner or placemats. With this simple, super-basic project, we will learn all the steps involved in quilt-making at a much smaller and manageable scale.

 

Limited to 5 students (16 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment is required for the class to meet. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund. This class is monthly and ongoing.
