Finch Quilt Club Fall 2018
5 months of meetings
This club was created to foster community the love of quilting while giving demo/lectures on technique. Each meeting will include 1 hour lecture about a new quilting technique or topic, as well as 1 hour of demo/lectures on the most frequently asked questions about piecing, fabric choices, pattern, and technique when quilting, that we hear at Finch. We’ll have samples, demos, show and tell, and more!
5 meetings (December will be a moveable meeting based on club attendee input)
10% discount on Club meeting days for Fabric, Yarns, Patterns, notions, and anything else you can get your hands on! (INCLUDES machines and classes)
Over the course of the fall, we will cover the following topics and techniques:
-Alison Glass's Trinkets quilt done in Mariner Cloth and Kaleidoscope, an optional quiltalong.
-Quilting garments and bags.... a trunk show in Noodleheads' new fabric line.
-Piecing with knits... a look at Carolyn Friedlander, Alabamana Chanin, and Suzy Quilts work on this topic
-Violet Craft Trunk Show... English Paper Piecing, foundation piecing, Quilting with other thread, and so much more!!
Some themes may be the topic of an entire Finch Quilting Club meeting, while others may be included at each meeting. You’ll get our best tips, tricks, and ideas learned from years of quilting experience!
Finch Quilt Club technique demos will provide you with advice and resources to tackle these techniques on your own, but these won’t be classes on each topic or specific project. We hope to build community and enthusiasm for quilting and help you progress into our quilt classes... which are awesome cuz they're taught by awesome people!!
