October Classes and Events

you must pre-register for all classes and events!  Now with our classroom opening up, our social distancing space in the classroom, and people getting out more, you must pre-register for any class or event at Creekside Quilting.  Anyone arriving without having registered may possibly need to leave, unless there is ample room in the classroom.  This is for your safety as well as ours and we appreciate your understanding of this situation.  Thank you!

***PLEASE NOTE before you come to class, make sure your sewing machine is in good working condition and has all the necessary supplies you will need to run the sewing machine. A good understanding of how to use your sewing machine is a must. Sewing classes require a basic sewing kit and quilting tools.

Upcoming Classes in November

  Wednesday, November 4th 
We know many of you are new to quilting, or just need a refresher course in quilt making, so Pat is teaching three sessions of each of the following classes:

Beginning Quilting Session 1: Learn to Quilt Quick and Easy Class 1 is review what tools you use in quilting, learn the importance and application of accurate cutting, and start a quilt top, as pictured above.  Take the quilt top home to finish up and come back for session 2

Beginning Quilting Session 2: Learn to Quilt Quick and Easy Class 2 is learning how to finish you quilt top by adding borders.  Also learn how to prepare your quilt for quilting with your sewing machine.

Beginning Quilting Session 3: Learn to Quilt Quick and Easy Class 3: is all about the binding and finishing the quilt.  Learn to prepare binding strips, attach them to your quilt edge, and turn mitered corners.  We will also discuss a 2 color binding technique that can give your quilt binding a pop of color.  Every quilter needs this class to give their quilts a nice finish.

You can sign up for all three sessions or one or mix and match!  Pick and choose your class(es), your dates and your times!  The classes will be a more individual learning environment, with a limit of 3 students per class.
