The Studio Stash

This is our new community stash. Pick a fabric, leave something from your stash, or both! We’re looking for a volunteer Stash Steward to keep the stash organized.

Longarm Quilting 101

Always wanted to learn to do longarm quilting but never had the chance? Sign up for Longarm Quilting 101! No prior longarm quilting experience is needed for this 4 hour class. Louise overviews the quilting possibilities and shares the basic skills you will need to complete your quilts.

Comfortable with longarm quilting yourself but know someone who wants to learn? If they take the class, you both get two free hours of studio time!

There are still seats available in the June 3 Longarm Quilting 101 class.

Here are some samples from our May class:

Quick safety pin tip

When putting zippers on your quilt top, put the pins in but leave them open. Once you’re done with the edge, you can close the pins all together. This saves a bit of time on a tedious task.
