Class Schedule

Class requirements and policy

The class fee must be paid in full at time of registration to be considered enrolled. If you are unable to attend a class for which you have registered and paid, you must cancel within a minimum of two days prior to the class start date in order to receive a refund. No refunds will be made for cancelling on the day of the class. You are responsible for picking up any kits, hand-outs, and files provided for that class. Blaine's reserves the right to cancel a class due to lack of enrollment; a full refund will be given at the time of cancellation.

Now that you’ve tamed the tension on your machine, you’re ready to learn alternate uses for the straight line ruler. You will learn double crosshatching and crosshatching on the diagonal. We will also begin using a second ruler, Bernina 4-in-1 ruler or Westalee arc ruler (the same one we are using for the straight line stitching). We will make 2 more blocks, similar to the last one we made in Ruler Work 101. The difference in the look of the new blocks 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class to set up your machine.

Everything you need to know before you sew!

This class is for the beginner quilter or anyone who needs to brush up on their skills. Session 1 will cover needles, threads, rotary cutter use and cutting and accurate quarter inch seams. You will be cutting the pieces for the pattern (at least some, maybe all!). Session 2 will focus on sewing the quilt top and how to measure for borders.
