This is a beginner series of 4 classes that shows you how to produce great quality quilts.
Barb Thomas, Instructor
This series of classes is designed to progress through the Marti Michell tool kit and describe and demonstrate the advantages that each tool offers. It gives you a chance to learn to quilt the best possible way. We simply guarantee that you will have fun, be accurate, and make great quilts.
There are many techniques that you can use to make a quilt. Most of us learn by trial and error. The problem with that approach is that you have to make a lot of quilts with lots of error before they start looking like works of art. That is why we recommend tools designed by Marti Michell.
Look around our shop and you will see lots of examples of well made quilts with few errors or weaknesses in workmanship. The tools really do help a great deal.

Please call or visit us at the store to arrange for a class. We will be happy to discuss the class project and the tools and materials that you need for the class.
Every participant must have their own pattern and their own tool set as required for the class project. No sharing. We find that sharing results in constant class interruptions. It also jeopardizes our trust relationship with our business partners and suppliers. And finally, it often violates copyright law. No refund or store credit will be given for cancellations made less than seven working days in advance.
