BERNINA Event - Embroidery & Quilting Together with Sylvain Bergeron
We run two camps each summer; each camp is Tuesday-Friday from 10am-5:30pm. July camp is for students 9 years and up, August camp is for 11 and up. All students need a sewing machine and basic sewing supplies. No prior sewing experience is needed but students should know how to thread a machine and wind a bobbin (if your child needs to be taught how to use their machine just contact us and we can help). If you need a machine we offer a package deal that includes the camp fees and a new sewing machine at a greatly reduced rate (while supplies last).
Every morning we start off with a technique clinic and a take-home project. After lunch (bring your own lunch) we will work on our big project for the session. This year we are emphasizing garment work and will be making a ruffled skirt and a spring jacket as our big projects. Each camp is unique with new daily projects and a different big project so students attending both sessions will have something new each day.
Sampler Quilt Fridays 7/10, 7/17, 7/31, 8/7, 3:30pm-5:30pm The sampler quilt is a great beginner quilting class. It includes an introduction to quilting for the new quilter, and a good way to practice and reinforce good quilting techniques for the intermediate or self-taught quilter.
A sampler quilt is a quilt where every block is different. Each block will introduce you to another technique. The goal is familiarity with the what, why and how of quilting so that you feel ready to attempt your favorite design with accuracy, confidence and the lingo needed to understand a pattern and create the blocks.
This is a 4-session hands on class. You'll be cutting, sewing, pressing and more as you create your sampler quilt top. Watch our calendar for future classes on borders, binding and quilting to continue to grow your quilting skills.
