Second Thursday Craft: Quilting

When: Thursday, March 08, 2018 - 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Where: Monument Library at Monument Meeting Room

Join us each month for a new craft! March is National Quilting Month, and Harriet will be back with a new project for us. We're trying something new this time: piecing fabric on the sewing machine. We will learn to accurately cut and sew half-square triangles, which are integral to many traditional blocks such as the Pine Tree, Bears Paw, and Ocean Waves. The technique we will use helps you avoid sewing a seam on a stretchy, bias edge. If you wish, you may bring your own machine. Irons, two machines, ironing boards, fabric, mats, rotary cutters, and rulers will be provided.

Machine piecing is a useful skill to produce durable, quick projects for gifts or your own use. It's a fun way to use up scraps left over from other projects and to experiment with color.

Familiarity with your machine is required, but otherwise this is a beginner's class.

Registration is required. You can register in person, by phone at 488-2370, or online at ppld.org/ programs/monument-library. All materials will be provided. Registration required: registration opens one week before craft day.
