We are again running the highly successful FLAT FOLD FINISHING CLASS. This is a great way to finish a holiday small that will be folded flat and put away, occupying only a modicum of space, until the following year when you pull it out to display along with your other treasures.

The class will run on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 9 to 1, here in our classroom. Heidi Curtis will be teaching. Please have a small item stitched and ready to go. In order to finish in the time allotted, it needs to be no larger than 4 by 5 inches, or so. We need to have mat board cut for your pieces, so please email in or call with your measurements by November 8. You will also learn to make twisted cord edging, so please bring some extra money to class for buying your perle cotton #5 and metallic thread. We ask that it not be needlepoint, as there is no time allowed in class for blocking. You need to bring about a fat quarter of fabric to enhance your design, about 6 inches of ribbon, sewing thread and a sharp needle. We will furnish the mat board and the quilt batt. The cost of the class will be $25, and registration is not considered complete until the class fee has been paid. Please sign up soon, as space is limited.

Should you not have a piece stitched and ready for finishing, you can just bring in fabric and make it up for practise, as though it is a treasured family heirloom.
