EZ Miter Method

Instructor: Tara Curtis

Tuesday, January 29

Learn the EZ Miter Method! Students will use the EZMiter template and quilt-as-you-go technique to construct a 21.5 x 21.5 inch table topper, with the option to continue adding to it at home to create a larger piece.

Tara Curtis of Wefty will teach you to construct blocks with a turned or raw edge that frame focus fabric centers. Great to use with a charm pack and use a consistent background color or multiple fabrics for a scrappier look. This great quilt as you go technique can be further customized using batting for a cuddly effect or none for a coverlet perfect for a warmer climate.

Kid's Indigo: Creating Blue Bandannas

Instructor: Kipp Inglis

Sunday, February 3

Kids will use the common kitchen chemistry ingredients of pickling lime (a canning ingredient) and fructose crystals (a form of sugar) combined with organic indigo to mix up a child safe dye. They will then learn to tie and bundle their fabrics using wooden blocks, marbles, rubber bands and craft sticks that will act as resists to create custom designs on their bandannas. The magic occurs when they learn to dip the bundled pieces into the indigo vat, take them out and watch as they oxidize from green to blue - giggles ensue! Each child will leave with 2 finished bandannas.
