Class meets every other week on Tuesday

March 12 and 26, April 9 and 23, May 7 and 21
The Lone Robin is an exciting creative journey in which you build your own quilt in response to an inspiring prompt from Julia. You have no knowledge of what might follow so there is no plan, no pattern and no expectation of how this quilt will look when it’s finished. This frees you to explore without traditional boundaries.
Each class starts with check in, showing your work and sharing your process is an important part of this course. Receiving constructive feedback from the group is encouraging and affirming, and seeing the work of other participants motivates and inspires you as you approach each round. To give you an interactive experience, we've created an online group through the Hello Stitch website for you to share your progress, connect with each other, and get content or re-watch video of the class. Meetings will be recorded so you can revisit techniques taught, or catch up if you miss a meeting. (Recordings will be available for one month after the last class.)
This inclusive class is for quilt-makers of all types; from beginners to seasoned quilters. Your quilt style can be a traditional-, modern- or art quilt. You choose the size and color palette. You can make anything from a table mat to a king size quilt. The Lone Robin is a welcoming class that aims to build creativity and community!
