Learn to Quilt: Beginner Sampler Quilt



Class Description

We are excited that you’re interested in becoming a quilter! Join us in the Embellish classroom to embark on your quilting journey as you construct a 60” x 60” sampler quilt. Each week during this 6-session class, you will learn the terminology, skills, and techniques to become a confident quilter. Quilting has evolved from your grandmother’s time; tools and rulers have been developed to improve accuracy and speed. Breaks have been built into the class schedule to allow time for catch up and homework.
