April at The Country Quilter

Now that we have more hours of sunlight for quilting and wool applique, no excuses not to finish your projects!

Oven Mitts: There are two spots available in the Oven Mitt Class on April 4th. Susan has a child sized pattern as well, so you could make Mom and Me mitts for Mother’s Day. They are great hostess gifts and bazar items. You could make seasonal ones!

Batting and Binding: On April 12th, 10:00 – 2:00, two experts will give a presentation on types of batting for your projects, and how to improve your binding techniques. This is an opportunity to see samples, ask questions and learn from others. Bring along any projects for suggestions. Please register to reserve a spot in the class.

Mini Retreat Day: April 17th. Bring your project and spend a day with friends. Lunch will be included, $15.00.

Landscape Class: April 18th. Continue on you landscape project or join the class and start a new one. This is a potluck class, 10:00 – 2:00.

Beginner Quilting: A new session for beginners will start on Tuesday, April 24th, from 1:00 to 3:00 for eight lessons. In this class you will learn the basics of quilting while making a quilt in the size of your choice. This is a great opportunity to refresh your quilting skills.

Wool Applique: Appliquers are gathering again with Linda Hobbs on April 25th for a day of stitching and a pot luck lunch. Linda will have her patterns and kits, as well as wool material with her. Bring your finished projects and works in progress to inspire others. New people are welcome. Please register for this class.

Sweat Shirt Class: This class was a great success and as there was a waiting list, Susan has agreed to repeat the class on May 2nd and 16th

Silk Scarf Dying: Don’t miss this opportunity to make a hand dyed scarf. The dyes and the scarf are included in the $15.00 fee! Friday, May 4th, 10:00 until everyone has her scarf completed.

  1. The show looks like it was stunning… too bad I missed it. Really hope some of those quilts find their way into Richmond Fair!
