Spring Virtual Workshop 

Herringbone-anza Workshop will be offered by the Guild on March 4, 2023 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm via Zoom. Our Instructor will be Tina Curran (www.tinacurran.com) who will be teaching us a technique to create either a pillow or quilt using a herringbone pattern. No worries, there are NO Y seams or special tools required. This workshop is charm square/honey bun and jelly roll friendly so start checking your stash for that pre-cut that you’ve been holding for just the right project.  Thereafter, contact Mary Lee Green to register. The workshop is free, but a $20 deposit is required to hold your spot. There are 14 spots left and they will go fast, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. Each person counts, even if sharing a computer. 

Westalee Ruler Workshop - April 29, 2023

Have you ever wanted to learn to quilt with rulers on your domestic sewing machine?  It’s an easy way to quilt your own projects, whether large or small.  The rulers are the guide to the stitching, so your quilting looks impressive.  This class is a beginner class.  You will learn the concept of how to use these rulers and get lots of practice at mastering the skills. 

  • The sewing machine foot needed to do this has to be one that works with your sewing machine brand.  The shape of it is round so that all sides can touch the ruler.  Most Husqvarna Viking machines take a LOW shank, most brother machines take a high shank foot.  You can check with me or your dealer to find out what foot you need.  You will also need an extension table that is flat.  If one comes with your machine, that will work fine.  I use an 18 X 24 clear acrylic Sew Steady table that fits my machine. 

  • The rulers we will be using are the WESTALEE Sampler Template Set Wt-WQTSS6 and the Ruler Foot Starter WF-W.  (This comes with the foot needed for class) 

  • A complete supply list will be provided when you sign up for class.    

Sign ups will begin at the February 1st regular monthly meeting.  You will need a $20 check to hold your spot.  Workshop will be held at the same church where we hold our Saturday Sew – New Brighton United Methodist Church – catty-corner from the post office.  Saturday, April 29th.  9am till 4pm.  Our instructor will be our very own Lisa Cope.  Please contact her if you have any questions about the rulers.  All other questions to me, Jan Garland.
