Quilted Hearts! With Claire Sherman
Learn to make quilted hearts, to hide, gift, or use as decorations.
This is your opportunity to brighten someone's day, starting with yourself. Claire's classes are fun and supportive - you are sure to leave with a pocket full of hearts and a smile on your face. You can decide whether you want to give away your heart or keep it for yourself or, maybe, do both.
Looking for a fun project to use up scraps, old blocks and all those pretty, shiny buttons and beads you've been saving? What better way to show them off than by adding them to your quilted heart.
Techniques taught include:
- quilting the hearts by machine with feed dogs up or down
- hand quilting
- hand embroidery
- embellishing with beads, buttons, and other trinkets
- twining - the process of making a multiple ply string or yarn. When done by hand, each strand can be a different color.
Claire makes hearts for a project called I Found a Quilted Heart. You can't help but fall in love with what they do when you read the stories people post when they find a heart. Check it out at www.IFAQH.com.

About the instructor:
Inspired by a neighbor’s Victorian crazy quilt, Claire Sherman started making her first quilt at age 13. There were no quilters in her family, so she taught herself, making it up as she went along. Improvisational quilting is still her favorite method of quilt design. Twenty years after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, with a BFA in ceramics, she rediscovered her love of quilting. Claire has taught workshops in quilting and other crafts for adults and children
This class is being held at the Bay Quilts located at 5327 Jacuzzi St. 3-C, Richmond, CA 94804. Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together. This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignment quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops. Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level. Bay Quilts is generously offering a 10% discount to students on the day of the class.
