Class Schedule

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLASSES AT STITCH:

I have available in the shop, 6 Ever Sewn machines that are available to be used free of charge if participating in a class.  You are also more than welcome to bring your own machine, if you are more comfortable using that.  All classes will specify cost for the instruction as well as note any fabric or supplies that will need to be purchased specific to the project. 

Always plan to bring along your basics like thread, scissors, pins, pincushion, marking pen, etc. Each sewing station is set up with machine, lighting, and a mini press board and iron to be shared among 2 machines, so no need to bring those items.  If you happen to forget one of the basics, there are also supplies available for purchase at the shop.

To register for classes, go to the home page here and look under New Arrivals for the most recently posted classes.  You can simply choose the class you would like to register for and checkout online. If the class you would like isn't visible, you can do a quick search using the word "class" and it should bring up all available options.

Cancellation policy: If you will be unable to attend a class (hey, life happens!), please notify me as soon as possible, but no less than 24 hours in advance to receive a full refund.  If you are unable to provide notice 24 hours in advance, a gift certificate in the amount of the class will be issued to you. It is absolutely acceptable to send someone in your place as well, if you are in a pinch. What a nice little surprise for a friend!

*If you purchase supplies/fabric from Stitch for a class, please enjoy a 15% discount on those items on me!


JULY 2019

Floral Embroidery-Wed, Jul 10th 6-8:30pm

We're taking a different approach to the beginner class this time around. Stitch will be kitting up this tiny floral embroidery project and you will jump right in learning as we go! Don't fret if this is your first go and the project doesn't turn out pristine, it's all part of the learning process. It's so satisfying to look back at your first try at something after you start to hone your skills and see how far you've come.

What you need to bring to class: Embroidery scissors, needle threader (optional, but I find a lot of people end up wanting one)

*Cost of class=$25.00 and includes 3" wooden hoop, 5" square of white muslin with pattern transferred and ready to stitch, embroidery needle, lengths of DMC embroidery floss in 6 colors.

Instructor: Angie Miller

Lazy Goose Quilt Part 1-Thurs Jul 11th (Part 2 is Thurs Jul 25th) 6-8:30pm

This is a great quilt to start on if you are a beginner. Large pieces make quick work to finish this modern and striking quilt. Finished top is 64" x 80" In session 1, we will cut and arrange all of our pieces. Session 2 will be actual construction of the quilt top.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

Cutting mat, rotary cutter, clear ruler for straight edge cutting, chalk pencil or water soluble marker for fabric, scissors, thread, pins or clips

10 Fat Quarters

2.5 yds of background fabric

*Cost of class=$40 and includes instruction for both sessions and postcard pattern for reference

Crazy Quilt Stocking-Tues, Jul 16th 6-8:30pm

This is a fun quilt-as-you-go project and can use a variety of cool Christmas fabrics if you have scraps or just love Christmas fabrics and need them all in your life!

The approximate finished size of this stocking is 17" long x 6" wide, but once you learn the technique, you could certainly adjust the sizing to be any size you like.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

Lining Fabric-Fat Quarter

Backing Fabric-Fat Quarter

Batting-scrap at least 9" x 20"

Front-15-18 fabric strips at least 8″-9″ long and various widths.

AUGUST 2019

Beginner Embroidery (New pattern!)-Wed, Aug 7 6-8:30pm

It was time to pick a new beginner pattern and I fell in love with this gorgeous design and the message! If you aren't a fan of the saying, but enjoy the floral embroidery, you can certainly modify that to your liking. This will be at a pace for beginners and all stitch varieties needed to complete the project will be reviewed during the class. You will likely not complete the design in the class session, but will be well on your way!

What you need to bring to class: Embroidery scissors. Needle threader (optional).

What is provided: 9x9" square of grey fabric with floral design transferred on, 6 inch wooden embroidery hoop, needle, 10 skeins of DMC embroidery floss, link to stitch instructions.

*Cost of class=$30

Instructor: Angie MIller

Jelly Roll Rug Squares Part 1-Thurs Aug 8 6-8:30pm

2nd session is Thurs Aug 22nd 6-8:30pm

A bit of a different take on the jelly roll rug we did a few times last year. The added benefit on this one is that you don't have to worry about keeping that large oval flat the whole time you sew, but you do have to bind the edges once you are done.

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

1 Jelly Roll that contains 40-2.5" strips

1/3 yd coordinating fabric to use for binding

Large spool of thread (600+ yds) or 2 spools if smaller

Basic sewing supplies-scissors, pins, etc.

What is provided: 50 yds batting on a roll precut at 2.5 inches wide. Instruction on project completion.

*Cost of class for 2 sessions and batting roll=$55.

Instructor: Angie Miller

Bone Neck Pillow/Chair Massages-Tues Aug 13 6-8:30pm

Stitch is teaming up with Somatic Wellness for a fun and relaxing evening! Come make a cozy, comfy neck pillow and try out a chair massage to relieve some stress. This is one class you don't want to miss!

What you need to bring/purchase prior to class:

1/2 yd fabric (3/4 yd if you want to fussy cut the print). This may be quilting cotton, a decorator weight fabric, or flannel or fleece. Whatever you think is going to be most comfy. I do recommend avoiding the minky chenille as it is difficult to sew with due to its' slick back.

2/3 yd of ¾" to 1" ribbon or tape per pillow (could be twill tape, grosgrain ribbon, etc.)

Matching thread

Basic sewing supplies: Scissors/rotary cutter, fabric pencil/marker, pins, hand sewing needle

What is provided: Bag of polyfil, template to cut pillows, instruction

*Cost of Class=$30

Instructor: Angie Miller, Massages: Lois Foster

If all goes well, this class may be a repeat with expanded design choices.
