Rhythm and Hues

Friday, January 24, 2020 | Class# 5019C

Is it time to step out of your comfort zone? This class will give you the opportunity to quilt with a variety of thread types - poly, cotton, glitter, metallic - on HandiQuilter's Sweet Sixteen. You'll learn to adjust tension, control your speed, and use the proper needle size. The $50 kit includes all fabric and batting sandwiches, spools of thread (yours to keep!), and more. There's no need for you to bring any supplies from home – it's all included. If you have a special thread you love to use when you quilt, but your machine doesn't-- bring it to the class. I can help. Enrollment is limited; each student will have their own machine to sit-and-stitch at for the entire class period! Sweet Sixteen quilting machines provided by HandiQuilter.
