Quilted Jacket or Vest Class

**Update to this post-the class had to be postponed so will begin February 2 and end on March 2. There are 3 spots left if you’d like to make a quilted garment with us.

The coat that started it all-Grainline Studio Tamarack

Kim, of Lakes Makerie employ, is the reason for my current obsession with quilted garments. The corduroy and flannel with an inner stuffing of wool batting looked so warm and cozy-I had to try my own version.

This is the Irma Bodywarmer from FibreMood

Not even close, right? So I may be on a circuitous route but I’ll get there. Or maybe one of the people that takes our class will. But on the way I will have fun exploring the different textures and weights of fabrics and the warmth of quilted garments. Will you join us?

The class is offered at Treadle Yard Goods, January 19, February 2 and 16 from 10-12 pm. It’s stretched out because there are so many decisions to make (well, for me anyway) and wonderful opportunities for slow winter handsewing if you choose. You can register online at treadleyardgoods.com or call them at 651-698-9690.

The first class will be an overview of your many choices of patterns and fabrics along with techniques that will be used to construct your garment. No machines necessary for the first class but bring inspiration photos, fabrics and patterns for discussion and decision making.

Or maybe you have a quilt to cut up

Either way, it will be amazing to see the different results that everyone in the class get. Hope you can join us-only dreaming required for first class 🙂
