Easy Sashiko (sa-she-ko) Brand new class 







Sashiko is the ancient art of hand quilting in even stitches to make warm and padded garments.   Warriers wore padded garments under their armor to keep the metal from cutting them.  Others wore quilted garments to keep warm.
Now, we do this beautiful and easy technique for beauty.  The designs are simple to complex and very easy.  It is pleasant to sit quietly, relax and sew.  The hand work mixes wonderfully with conversation, TV,  thinking and planning.  The finished work is beautiful.
Make a pillow, table runner or seat cushions.
If you have never sewn by hand before, this is the perfect beginning!

The Amazing Log Cabin


                                                                                                                                                     
"Log Cabin"  is a classic block that has been popular for years.  There have been hundreds of quilts made in this extraordinary design.  But, the Log Cabin's potential has very seldom been realized; log cabins will curve, swirl, march, wiggle, soar, bounce, fly.  They are sedate or silly; dull or brilliant, sassy or solemn, vintage or modern.                                                                               But, they are easy!

In this very special class we will learn lots of new forms for the basic log cabin block. Triangles, circles,  3-D, swirls and twists, new designs that you create yourself.
We will draw and design, color and color, cut and sew.
