Learn quilting skills as you make a small project with plenty of guidance, and follow your intuition to make it meaningful for you. You can work with whatever fabrics, colors, and symbols speak to you as you learn cutting and piecing techniques, try machine or hand quilting, add embellishment if you like, and finish your project. You'll leave with a small quilt, which can serve as a wall hanging, table runner, or altar cloth. You'll also gain the skills you need to start making bigger quilts! No quilting experience necessary. Familiarity with sewing machine basics is recommended. If you need to brush up your skills before class, come to Create + Connect on Wednesday nights! All materials are included, so you can use our stash of fabric scraps, batting and threads. You are also encouraged to bring any special fabrics you want to incorporate. Sewing machines are provided. Feel free to bring your own machine as well. This class is taught by Patty Kohany. Patty has been sewing since she was in 5th grade. For her Masters Thesis project at NAU, Patty helped communities affected by the Rodeo-Chediski Fire to tell their stories through quilts. She also has led quilting projects for kids in Flagstaff schools. No matter their age or experience, she works to help her students connect to their innate creativity and find healing and community through stitching. 4 Sessions on Saturdays 1pm to 2:30pm all days October 7th, 14th, 28th, and November 4th (no class October 21st) In Person at Threaded Together This is an intergenerational workshop!
