Classes

Project classes welcome any brand of sewing or embroidery machine. When bringing your machine to class, make sure it is in good working order as we cannot interrupt the class to help with repairs. Also, bring the machine manual and accessories. It is helpful to have some notions, for example, scissors, straight pins, fabric marker, ruler or any other favorites. We cannot accommodate children or guests during classes. Refreshments brought to class should be covered.

Register early to guarantee your seat and to avoid class cancellation. Notify the store promptly if a cancellation is necessary. Class refunds cannot be made within seven days of class. However, customers are welcome to find their own class replacements.

When you register early and prepay your class, you will receive the supply list and software if needed. Software should be installed onto a stick or laptop prior to class. Payments may be made by telephone using a VISA or MASTERCARD credit card. Call Sandie, Cherl, at (559) 432-8900.

Stitch n Slash
STITCH 'N' SLASH
(a design-your-own-fabric class)
Have you ever wanted to design your own fabric? Now's the chance. You will be given step by step, hands-on instructions on combining several different fabrics into two great, new and completely original designs.
In this class you will learn:
• Two completely different fabric-design techniques and then put them together as two sides of a Hobo Bag.
• Which colors and fabrics work best together (and which don't work at all !!)
• How to combine these fabrics in completely new ways to produce an entirely new look.
• Tips on using these same designs in ways other than those shown in class.
• How to create an entirely new design using the left-over scraps from the first half of the project.
Once you've learned to design your own fabric you can then make anything you like from it. These techniques work well for fabrics used in jackets, vests, handbags, totes, pillow-covers, notebook covers, quilt blocks (and whole quilts, of course) and just about anywhere you would use fabric.
This is a three-day class. The first two days you will create two different fabrics to be used in the class project, which is a Hobo Bag. The third day will be putting the bag to-together.
Come into the store a see the many samples.
This is the first in a series of fabric-design classes by Janna. Don't miss out on the op-opportunity to have clothes and accessories completely original, designed exactly the way you've always thought they should be.

Felting Made Easy
FELTING MADE EASY
(a design-your-own-fabric class)
You've seen (and maybe used) the felt sold in stores, but have you ever wondered how it's made? In this class you will learn the basics by creating a neck warmer or handbag (both patterns included in class kit). You will be able to choose your project.
Felting is the oldest known process of creating fabric. So strong it is used in tents and heavy ropes in some countries, so delicate it can be made into a gossamer-sheer shawl. How you make it determines the outcome of the fabric, but it all starts with wool roving, the fine fibers sheered from animals, that has been washed, combed and often dyed.
In this class you will learn:
How to lay out your fibers to create the best finish and design.
How to manipulate the fibers in the wetting and drying processes to get the texture you desire.
The difference between felting and fulling (yes, it matters).
How to ‘seam' pieces together without sewing.
Needle-felting and needle-punching techniques.
Embellishments, both during and after the felting process.
This is a two day class. The first day you will create your piece of felt. The second day you will use your created felt-piece in the design of your choosing.
This class is the basics in felt-making. With this class as your background you can latter go on into other more complex designs, adding embellishments, creating various tex-tures, shapes, and much more.
Felting is another great way to have original fabric, designed and created by you to make scarves, shawls, handbags and totes, pillow covers and seamed (and seamless) clothing - even without sewing, if you choose.
Come into the store to see a display of the many different pieces.
