QUILTING 101

York County Quilter’s Guild, Inc. is creating a sign up for a Quilting 101 class. We hope to hold our next class in either January or February of 2019.

Class description: In this class you will learn about fabric, equipment, piecing, quilting, and finishing a small wall hanging. You will be required to bring your own sewing machine you have practiced on and understand how it works. Bring basic sewing supplies, a ¼” presser foot if available for your machine, off white thread, sharp scissors, ruler, pins, extension cord, and something to take notes with. You will be provided with a pre-cut kit to make your wall hanging.

*If you do not have a sewing machine we will have machines to use IF we know you need one.

Dates and time: Classes are always on consecutive Saturdays- that means you need to have 2 Saturdays available together. You will need both days to complete your project. Classes run from 9 AM until 2 PM with a lunch break (you bring a sack lunch). Doors open at 8:30 so you can set up and be ready for 9.

Where: Grace Lutheran Church (Classroom downstairs) on the corner of 426 Oakland Avenue and Aiken in Rock Hill, SC 29730. (Enter on the right side of the church and there will either be someone there to greet you or at least a sign.)

Cost: The fee for the 2 classes and a kit is $45.00. This class is open to the public.   You do not need to be a Guild member to participate.

Sign up: Please contact Wendy Jones at rwcjones@comporium.net if you are interested in putting your name on the list. Include your name, phone number and which month works best for you- January or February.

Willa Theile is the instructor with over 30 years of teaching and quilting experience. If you have questions about the class itself, please call her at 704-560-5532.
