This first project is a great place to start, as it’s all straight lines! You can learn the basic functions of the machine and walk away with a lovely keepsake or gift!
I don’t know about you, but my family LOVES their t-shirts, and we hate to donate or throw away the ones that carry special memories. They might not fit anymore, or maybe are worn with holes or stains, but we just can’t part with them. Let me show you how to easily “upcycle” them into a cozy throw size quilt, like the one shown below.
Over the course of 4 weeks (you choose: Monday or Wednesday evenings), we will spend 2 hours each week cutting, preparing, sewing, constructing, and finishing your quilt. You supply 24-30 t-shirts (and a few other supplies), and I’ll lead you through the process. Don’t have a sewing machine? No worries, I’ll have 4 on hand for you to use.
Mondays (6-8pm): July 10, 17, 24, 31.
Wednesdays (6-8pm): July 12, 19, 26, Aug 2
Class Fee: $80. Maximum class size: 6 adults
Class 1: bring clean shirts for cutting and fusing
Class 2: sewing shirts together
Class 3: layers and quilting
Class 4: binding
Supplies Needed: 24-30 adult sized t-shirts, thread, fusible interfacing, batting, backing cotton, sewing machine.
Additional supplies (bring if you have, supplied if you don’t): measuring tape, scissors, rotary cutter, clear ruler (min. 15″), safety pins.
Class will be held in my Oxford home: 2345 Hummer Lake Rd., Oxford MI 48371
Register in my website (SHOP tab) for Monday or Wednesday. $40 due at registration, balance due at first class meeting.
