Meditative Stitching​ 


One Day Class

What is Meditative Stitching?

It’s the deliberate hand stitching of lovely small pieces of fabrics joined together to make a pleasing composition. Why? To still your mind, to be absorbed in the lusciousness of the moment and the materials. We’ll use silk, linen, wool, hand-dyed cotton, ribbon, yarn, lace, or beads. Each small 4” composition tells a story and takes you on a journey. We’ll address design principles and sources as well as color theories related to the project. 

Thoughtful Improv Piecing 


Two or Three Day Class

If you love good design and want to be more adventurous in your quilts, here is your chance to explore piecing improvisationally! We’ll talk about design, principles, and color choices related to the project. Improv piecing is a fun and playful technique that you will want to employ in any future sewing projects. You will learn to select the best fabrics, format, and how it all fits together for the success of your piece.   By cutting and sewing together, we’ll take the mystery out of improv while you apply your own unique ideas every step of the way. Individual attention will be emphasized, and you’ll learn many creative solutions to possible obstacles in the comfortable safety of a supportive experienced instructor. I know we’ll have a GREAT time!!  


In three days you could get a cozy lap quilt top finished.  Or a beautiful wall piece you are free to choose!!
