Do you have a family heirloom that you would like to save and use? This class is a perfect way to feature a favorite handkerchief or embroidery piece in a Mug Rug/Mini Quilt. The completed project is about 7 inches square. We will start with a feature piece and add strips of fabric and lace/trims/doilies to complete our Mini Quilt complete with binding. Learn basic quilting/piecing skills. Suitable for beginner quilters. Don't worry if you don't have any vintage linens or lace scraps. Michelle will bring some to share if needed.

This pattern features a relaxed fit pull-on tunic or dress with 3/4 length sleeves and options on using a one piece or band collar. You'll learn how to sew an inset front placket, set in sleeves, and create an inverted pleat in the back of the tunic/dress. The Gallery Tunic is effortless and feminine, and yet a classic-but-contemporary piece that can take on many different looks depending on how you style it. Supply List: Sewing machine in good working order and general knowledge of operation. Machine owner?s manual and machine accessories. Gallery Tunic+Dress pattern Fabric yardage as indicated on the pattern for your size. Again, I think knit fabrics will not produce the tailored look as it appears on the pattern cover. Matching all-purpose sewing thread. Tape measure, sewing pins/clips, sharp fabric cutting scissors, removable fabric marker, seam gauge, spray starch (optional), and other general sewing supplies. Serger if you own one. (I will be bringing my personal serger with white and black thread.) Pre-class Homework: Purchase the pattern and fabric in advance. I recommend prewashing your fabric in the manner it will be laundered after wearing. Take your measurements at home and select the pattern size. You can also draw the pattern in your size on pattern making fabric to preserve the other sizes for future use.
