Let's make a fun and festive patchwork stocking together!
In this class you will cut and piece diamond patchwork and make headway on a quilty, scrappy and adorable stocking that's sure to be a treasured family heirloom year after year! This is a great opportunity to use up old scraps or make something new and special - whatever you choose you will create a unique Christmas stocking of your very own!
In addition to learning how to build diamond patchwork, the teacher will go over the basics of big stitch hand quilting and also demo straight line walking foot quilting with your machine. You will walk away with all the techniques you need to create a unique Christmas stocking of your very own! Psst, all the techniques you learn in this fun and festive class can be applied to home decor items and your quilts!
This is a great opportunity to involve a crafty child in creating their own holiday memories as you both work on your stockings together. You both will need to sign up for the class and to have a sewing machine to use.
Skill level: ✂️✂️
