What is a Skill Building Class?

At Seams Like Quilting, we want your only limit to be your imagination!

As a set of skills, quilting is much like cooking. We can work from a recipe (pattern) and often do. But once in awhile, dinner just needs to get on the table. So we rely on foundational skills, dig around in the pantry, and bring something together. Knowing how to cook is about more than following a recipe. And knowing how to quilt is the same. Often, we avoid patterns we like because they use techniques we’re uncomfortable with. Our skill building class series is about introducing those techniques. We never know what our next favorite skill will be!!

We welcome you to our classes! Classes run with a minimum of 3 people and a maximum of 6. Bring your machine, rotary cutter, mat, and basic notions to class. No refunds are given unless is cancelled by the shop. Communication of class status will be via email.

*All fabric cut from bolt priced and sold in quarter yard increments. For 1 yard, please set quantity at 4.
