This is a rare opportunity to learn with esteemed guest teacher Susan Stein!

The One-of-a-Kind Quilt class utilizes the "orphan" blocks, homer hankies, cross stitch pieces, and precious bits of fabric. Make simple four-inch filler blocks to expand on your theme pieces to make a nicely-sized wall hanging.

Time for a new coat? When you live in Minnesota, your coat should be more than something to keep you warm. It is a wardrobe essential that can be fashionable and change with the season. Whether you want to move into spring in a new trench or be a step ahead for next winter in a toasty warm wool, why not sew what you want? Learn what to look for in patterns and fabric, when and how to use underlining and interfacing, and which techniques work best for what you have chosen. Students will have the opportunity to choose pattern and fabric with Michele’s help before the first class so that you can hit the ground running the first day.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Fee: $195

Instructor: Michele Hoaglund
