This class teaches how to cover the edge of the quilted "quilt sandwich" with double-fold binding, using the sewing machine. This is usually the final step in making the quilt (unless you add a hanging sleeve or add embellishments). Double-fold binding that is cut on the bias is one of the most durable bindings for a quilt. Students need to sew together their binding strips into one continuous length prior to class. (Optional: Take the class on Making Continuous Bias-Cut Binding Strip prior to this class session.)
Cost: $30.00 for 3-1/2 hour class session per student, in small groups (no credit cards accepted). Private lessons are available for an additional fee.
This class has 1 student preregistered. Space is still available for additional students.
I am offering classes on either Quilting or Needle Tatting or Crochet at both Hobby Lobby stores in Knoxville, TN. I am teaching sessions on Monday mornings, Tuesdays (all day), or Friday afternoon/evenings, and many Saturdays. Students can request special sessions at other times if a classroom is available.
The class taught on each date will be determined by what students request when they pre-register with me. Students must preregister in advance (2 days preferred) to select the class topic & date/time.
A variety of class options are available, teaching a range of skills, and most are 3 hour classes. See the listing of quilting, needle tatting, & crochet classes on my page at myquiltplace.com/profile/MonicaSchmidt.
Arrive up to 15 minutes early for each class, to allow time to set up (especially for quilting classes using a sewing machine) & make your payment.
Supply list will be e-mailed to students (from me) after they preregister. Please allow enough time to receive your supply list & purchase all the supplies prior to class.
Kindly support Hobby Lobby when you purchase class supplies, so that the classroom space remains available. Hobby Lobby has a good selection of needles for tatting, crochet hooks, cotton & perle cotton threads for tatting or fine crochet, yarns, 100% cotton fabrics (including Kona solids), quilt batting, and basic quilting & sewing supplies.
Class sessions will not be held unless a minimum # of students preregister. I will call you directly if a class has to be cancelled.
Please do not come to the store for a class session unless you have registered with me in advance. I do not come to the store unless students have pre-registered. I only print class handouts for those who have pre-registered.
The store does not provide sewing machines and does not handle any registration details for the instructors.
