Teaching Schedule

Eweknit has hired me to teach quilt classes. Some of the classes offered are free for students. Check their website for times, dates, classes. You must sign up. The class is capped at 8 people.

Right now, there are 4 scheduled

 March 11 (quilt binding),
March 25 (theme hasn't been confirmed but it looks like it will be layering a quilt)
 April 8 (paper piecing hexagons)
April 22 (triangles)

Email them to register and get a list of supplies needed.

I will also be on their schedule for the Fall.

 I have had to cancel this year's 
"Spring-Cleaning Quilt Class"
because of some textile opportunities abroad. These classes are very popular and I will definitely resume them next spring 2018.

 I call this annual series Spring Cleaning because it's about cleaning out that box of scrap fabric. It's a  one-day workshop. You'll make a quilt top using (mostly) your scraps!

Classes are for all levels. pre requisite: You must know how to use your sewing machine

Learn the basics for making a quilt top. Cutting, sewing, choosing fabric. The 9-patch block is a good place to start! Join us for a beginner class. Also a good choice for self-taught quilters and a refresher for experienced quilt makers.
Once you register, a supply list will follow.

Class fee: $60
*Bring your own sewing machine.

All In One Quilt

I love quilting as I piece because it saves me time. I get the quilt done faster! This technique is extremely versatile! Some have called it “life changing”. You will create a quilt keeping one of the seasons in mind. (example above: spring) Fabulous project for people who have lots of scraps and for people who don’t have time to quilt! As always I will give you many options to take advantage of this technique.
After registration, a supply list will follow.

About the Teacher

Dear Sandra,

I wanted to send you a note to thank you for the wonderful class  you taught at our guild. I have rarely taken a class when I learned so much and got so much accomplished during the class. This is definitely a technique I will be using. DG

Thanks so much -- I really enjoyed the class.  As always, you gave the kind of information, guidance and inspiration that allowed us to work confidently toward our own individual visions. I love the way this piecing is simple enough that I can focus on how the fabrics work together. The space was very convenient, lots of room & bright. JA

The class was great and certainly got me enthused about quilting again.  If only I had this week off work, I could spend the week sewing! JN

Your class was (as always) incredible.  You are truly an inspirational teacher and I love the fact that you outline the design and we are then encouraged to put our own stamp on things.() The day was so relaxing despite my hurrying to get something done and making mistakes that I then had to fix. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it. Haven't finished a block on this one yet and I can't wait for your next class! Tempted to (ahem) call in sick tomorrow to work on the quilt! MM
