Gallery Tunic or Dress
- Feb 10, 2023 09:00 am

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.

Cost: $ 40.00
Painted Mountains
- Feb 11, 2023 10:00 am

Piece this beautiful quilt using equilateral triangles to form beautiful "painted mountains". Kelly Ashton designed this quilt pattern and is excited to teach it to you. Supplies: Sewing Machine - Clean, well-oiled, and ready to sew! Please don?t forget bobbins, power cord, foot control, patchwork foot*, extra machine needles, etc. *NOTE: Please bring a ?? / ?patchwork foot? WITHOUT guide / flange. Thanks! Fabric:*: Yardage is based on 42?-wide fabric. Please, no flannel or directional fabrics. Amounts are generous. -? yd. of at least 11 different colors of solid OR ?look like solids from a distance? fabrics (like tone-on-tone, Moda Grunge, etc.) for mountain blocks (more than 11 will give you greater flexibility for color placement in your quilt top.) -2? yds. print for mountains (the print fabric that pairs with the solid / ?read solid? fabrics to create the mountain peaks) -4? yds. neutral print for setting pieces, sashings, outer border and binding -4? yds. for backing -Batting: queen size or at least 80? x 86? *See pre-workshop preparation at the end of this handout! Template Kit: The template kit is mandatory for each participant. The kit includes four acrylic templates for blocks, Fabric Grips? for the templates, template plastic for making templates to cut the 3 setting pieces (Kelly will instruct re: template-making), and the project pattern. The kit will be available for you when you arrive for class. Kit fee: $25 (credit card, debit card, or cash, please.) Supply List: Other supplies: Thread: high quality, neutral color piecing-weight thread. Presencia 60-wt. cotton thread is my personal favorite. Rotary Cutter: 28mm size is preferred for cutting around templates Cutting Mat: A 12?x12? cutting mat on a rotating base OR a 12x18? non-rotating mat (or both if you?re able to transport two). The rotating mat works especially well for cutting around the acrylic templates; the 12X18? is more helpful for cutting strips. Mary Ellen?s Best Press (or another fabric stabilizer): For pre-workshop preparation - no need to bring to class! Notions: pins, snips, seam ripper, utility scissors, Ultra Fine Point Sharpie pen, Klutz Glove (optional, yet recommended), paper / pencil for note-taking. Pre-Workshop Instructions: Preparing your fabric: Whether or not you pre-wash your fabrics, I strongly recommend generously spritzing your fabrics with Mary Ellen?s Best Press and pressing the fabric until dry with an iron on cotton setting prior to cutting your fabric strips. Because all of the cut patchwork pieces have at least two bias edges, this fabric preparation helps to add stability to the fabric thus diminishing the liklihood of distorting the patchwork pieces during the piecing process. I also prepare my sashing, border, and binding fabrics in the same way. Pre-class cutting: After you have stabilized your fabrics (see ?preparing your fabric?, above), please cut the following: -From 4-5 of your ?read solid? fabrics, cut 1-2 strips, 2?? x width-of-fabric. -From your ?mountain? fabric, cut one strip each: 2?? x width-of-fabric, 4? x width-offabric and 7?? x width-of-fabric. -Bring the whole piece of neutral fabric to class. Please bring all of the strips you?ve cut plus the remaining amounts of the ?read solid?, mountain, and neutral sashing / border fabrics to class (including the fabrics from which you?ve already cut strips.) I?m so looking forward to having you in class! We?re gonna have a great time!
