Hand-Sewn Quilting Primer Series: a seven week exploration


Hand-Sewn Quilting Primer Series: a seven week exploration


Perfect for the beginner, our Quilting Primer series aims to demystify the act of hand sewing a quilt block through a sequence of diverse forays into block constructing. While rooted in quilting’s history of using scrap fabrics to make beautiful coverlets, this series gathers contemporary voices and techniques to give the new sewist a set of skills and the confidence to take on an existing pattern or personal composition.

Exposure to seven unique teachers affords any sewist, seasoned or novice, the opportunity to witness varied approaches even within the same technique. Experiencing the series as whole is sure to provide a comprehensive foundation and will get you well on your way in a joyful practice of hand-sewn quilting.

The blocks from each class can then be assembled together in any way you like to represent a sampler of skills. They would also make great pillows or patches for another textile. There will be plenty of opportunities to include special fabric scraps you might have from your collection, to make it uniquely yours and add personal meaning.

If you are purchasing the whole series after some of the classes have taken place already, you will receive a downloadable PDF in your confirmation receipt containing links to the recorded classes and associated materials.
