Two Day Workshop: Quilted Wall Hanging
October 29 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm PDT$147
Instructor: Windsor Meyer
Skill Level: Beginner/Advanced Beginner (no quilting experience is necessary)*, ages 15 and up
Sessions: 2 sessions, 3.5 hours per session
In this two day workshop, Windsor breaks down the steps of quilting into easy to process, bite size pieces. You’ll gain a clear understanding of the quilting process and have lots of time for experimentation and play.
Together you’ll discuss the use of color, texture, and value in a quilted composition and get hands-on practice with foundational quilt techniques including half square triangle, 9 patch, and log cabin blocks. You’ll leave class with a unique (designed and sewn by you) quilted wall hanging!

*Skill Level: Advanced Beginner – You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
