February 2015 Schedule of Classes
Scrappy Mug Mat
Tues. Feb. 10, 1-4
Turn your tiniest of scraps into these adorable mug mats. Using this method, fuse 1” squares of fabrics onto a special interfacing. Then simply sew on the lines printed on the interfacing. It is extremely accurate and eliminates handling each individual piece and the frustration of trying to sew small pieces and having them drawn down into the bobbin area of your sewing machine. This is a technique that can also be used to make many more items including an adorable table runner and even whole quilts.
Class fee: $15.00
How to Knit Mittens
2 week class: Sunday Feb. 8 and Sunday, Feb. 15, 1-5 each day
In just 2 afternoons, you will learn to knit mittens. This is my absolute favorite pattern as there is no left or right hand mitten and they fit so perfectly! If you know the knit stitch, you can knit these mittens. Bonus: the pattern is for all ages from child to adult. Outfit your whole family in hand knitted mittens.
Class fee: $35.00
Border Stripe Quilt
2 week class: Wed. Feb. 11 and Wed. Feb. 18, 10-5 each day
There are really terrific border design fabrics! In this class you will learn how to incorporate them into your quilts. This is a very versatile pattern which allows for different widths of border stripes and you can easily make your quilt any size. Our model is made with a cozy flannel. Choose flannels, cottons, baby designs; even small picture designs will fit nicely using this pattern.
Class fee: $50.00
Monday, February 23, 1-5
There are so many ways to bind a quilt. Bring a quilted item ready for binding and we will explore different options and get you started at getting that item bound and completed so you can enjoy it!
Class fee: $20.00
The 30 Minute Tote
Tuesday, February 24, 11-1
This handy, roomy tote is ingeniously designed to fold flat until ready to use. Take it shopping, to the beach, use it for an extra overnight bag; its uses are endless. The sturdy jute handle will carry it all. The pattern offers three size options as well. Beginning sewers welcome!
Class fee: $15.00
Just for You!
Plan a class for you and 2-3 or more of your friends. It can be something from the current schedule, something we have offered in the past or something that you have always wanted to try or know more about. Give us a call with your ideas and times and we will plan a date. Please allow 3-4 weeks for planning, scheduling a date and staff. It's that easy to have a fun day with friends!
To Ensure Your Success In Classes
Preregistration and prepayment are required for all classes. This allows the instructor to be properly prepared and allow us to schedule additional staffing in the shop. Registering at least one week in advance of the class is greatly appreciated. There are supplies that are needed for classes and we will advise you of what is needed at the time of payment and registration. Unless otherwise noted, class fees are for instruction only.
All supplies are available at Village Fabrics & Crafts. We strive to keep all items in stock to make your preparation and shopping easy, convenient and greatly appreciate it when you purchase your supplies from us. We have tested them and are confident in their quality and your success when using them. If you have some supplies at home, you are welcome to bring them. Store credit only for cancellations.
Don't worry about winter weather! If the weather is unfavorable and schools are closed, we will reschedule the class!
For your convenience our classroom is fully equipped with irons, ironing boards, cutting mats and rulers. We also have Bernina sewing machines available for your use. Please reserve one when you register for your class-first come, first serve.
I Want to Learn . . . . . . . .
You fill in the blank, what would you like to learn? Bring along at least 2-3 of your friends and we will schedule a class just for you. You select the project, date and time, give us as much notice as possible to work it into our regular schedule, prepare and we'll have a date! You can select from classes listed on the current schedule (if the date doesn't fit your group), something offered in a previous schedule or just ask if you have any other interests; we'll do our best to accommodate. We're here to help you enjoy all the needle arts to their fullest!
