Upcoming classes to be
scheduled...

Beth Helfter from EvaPaige Quilt Designs
Accordion Sewn HSTs - "The Carpenter's
Apprentice
"
$50 includes lunch
Why take this class?
Accordion Sewn HST were invented to
maximize the number of fabrics in scrappy
HST based quilts.  It's incredibly run and
addiction, but it doesn't just make cool little
accordions; once you cut them apart, your
quilts are halfway done.  This workshop will
take the Accordion Sewn HST technique
and up the ante just a bit as we sew all the
HSTs needed for the Carpenter's
Apprentice pattern ALMOST all at once,
keeping it all scrappy with no waste!
Pattern required but can be purchased the
day of class for $10.
Supply list and cutting instructions
available.  It is highly recommended that
fabrics are cut prior to class.
