Sumlin All about Texture! 2019 Block of the Month Focusing on Machine Feet While this class has been developed for the Pfaff Creative Icon, other machine owners will benefit from learning to use the feet available for his/her machine brand or model. [The instructor will assist other machine owners who may lack a particular foot or not have an embroidery function to use the capabilities of the particular machine brand. Check with the staff at Gromes to see which feet you have available.] These fun blocks allow the student to learn various techniques and different presser feet on the Pfaff sewing machine. Each block will use different feet, stitches and materials to create beautiful texture and fun creations! Only the blocks will be finished in class with options to assemble the blocks as the student desires (i.e. wall hanging, miniature blocks, quilt, etc.)

BASIC SEWING with Cecily
Mondays 6-9pm

Basic Sewing is an ongoing class that meets on Monday nights from 6 to 9 pm.

Some students will be working on clothing, some on home decor (pillows, curtains, etc.) and some on quilting projects. We will often have a couple of beginners along with some students who just want a little help deciphering those confusing directions and a few students who just enjoy being able to work on a project in a fun atmosphere. It's a little different mix every week but always entertaining education.
