Fall Classes at Inman Quilt Cottage

 Now that school is back in session and the mornings are cooling off a bit, it's time to focus on some quilt classes.  Learn the basics or make a new project! We've had several requests for a Beginning Quilting Class so join us on Tuesday's, October 4th, 11th and 18th either in the mornings, 10 a.m. to noon or evenings, 5:30 to 7:30 to learn the basic rotary cutting, quarter-inch seams and proper pressing to launch you into the fun world of quilting.  We'll be making a traditional nine patch from Alex Anderson's book, Start Quilting.
 Now that the 2011 Shop Hop is over, we have some of our Kansas Troubles block kits still remaining.  We've reduced them to half-price so stop by and pick up a few while they last. We made a pretty pillow from our's.
 Jody will be offering a landscape quilt class Saturday, October 29th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. across the street at the Inman Presbyterian Church, one of our 'Across the Street Retreats' which includes instruction, lunch and snacks for $50.  The kits will include all the supplies you'll need, the Applique Press Sheet, Bo Nash 007 Starter kit, Wonder Under, fabrics, five spools of Sulky rayon thread, an hoop for thread painting, Sulky Solvy, a permanent marker and tulle. Bring your sewing machine with quilting or free motion foot, a small cutting mat, snips or small scissors, rotary cutter and be ready to have fun learning some basic landscape quilting techniques.

We're also offering a seamless standard pillowcase class, Saturday, September 24th from 10 to 11:30 a.m.. You'll want to make several of these for Christmas or birthday gifts, hostess gifts or a remembrance for a shut-in.  This class is $5 plus fabrics you come in and pre-select.
Also, Becky will teach the Berry Sweet Bag by Fig Tree Quilts. She's made it super easy by pre-quilting and cutting your basic bag pieces. This class will be Tuesday, September 20th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (you can look through our older posts for a photo!) and is $5 plus the kit, $22.50.
Stop by or call and sign up today!  We will also customize classes for your guild or group of friends whether you wish to make a purse, tote, apron, quilt or other project.  Stop by for details.
