Looking for a challenge? Bound buttonholes and welt pockets are considered the "hallmarks" of better coats and jackets. Ruth will demonstrate several methods to achieve great results for these jacket features. This class is a combination of Demo and Hands On. Students will prepare these as samples. It's an Advance Level class, but Ruth will provide tons of samples, options, demonstrations and handouts to simplify these challenging constructions.

Some beginner classes rush you through a couple of simple projects. When you then try to do it on your own, you're lost. At Sew Right we've been teaching beginners for years and have developed the right format so that you'll understand it and can go home and do it on your own. Ruth has been teaching people to sew for over 30 years! Here's a chance for a beginning sewer to kick things up a notch! Start with a super simple design and learn how to combine a variety of fabrics to create a patchwork jacket and/or use those decorative machine stitches with fancy thread or trims for a custom design with bling! (Soft fabrics with drape will work best).

Fit is the Holy Grail of garment sewing-all the fine sewing in the world will not save a badly fitted garment. There is precious little information out there on fitting and this class aims to address that lack of good information. This fitting clinic will perform two functions: to explain and demonstrate how to fit garments and to create a pattern of a favorite garment that actually fits. The student will bring in a muslin mock-up of a garment that they want adjusted to fit them properly. In class, they will learn how to adjust the garment for a proper fit. A pattern will be created based on the adjustments according to the information provided in the re-fitted muslin. At the end of class, along with a well-fitting pattern, the students will gain an understanding of the procedure and principles of how to "fit" so they can apply these skills to future garments. Seating is limited to insure everybody gets personal attention. *This class is for intermediate and advanced sewers.

We have had many requests for a beginning quilting class and Laurie found a GREAT kit that would be a wonderful project for someone who wants to plunge into quilting and wants to develop their skill set. This kit has a fun design and all the components needed to create an easy, but complex-looking quilt. This 3 class series will take you through sewing, quilting, and binding a quilt. By the end you should have a completed quilt or be on your way to finishing it on your own. The class fee includes the quilt kit.

Have you ever finished a quilt top and then thought about quilting it but couldn't come up with a pattern, so you procrastinate and it winds up in a closet or in a box. Well this quilt is pieced and quilted in one operation, so when the top is done the quilt is complete and ready for binding. It is also a log cabin containing triangles, so you can get two of the all-time favorite quilt patterns in one! It's a win, win, win! Quilters of all levels can do this if you can rotary cut and sew consistent seam allowances.

"Baffling" is a quilt-as-you go method where you will be able to handle large quilts on your own without having to send them out to be quilted! Elaine has refined the method where you can create larger manageable regions for baffling the quilt while using your domestic sewing machine.

With the rousing success of the "Antelope Canyon" quilt classes, Judy has decided to teach another Laurie Shifrin pattern, "Mirage." This ingenious graphic beauty contains the illusion of three concentric circles without any curved piecing. It is simply a matter of cutting the correct segments-piecing them together into strips and then attaching the strips together.
