Ellisimo Inspiration Class

The Ellisimo Inspiration Class is scheduled for Wednesday, November 16 from 10:30-1 PM and from 5:30-8PM.

There will be two parts to the class. The first will be on Quilting. I will have instructions to make a quilted placemat. You will piece the blocks, sew them together, add the batting, backing, and quilt the placemat. I understand that some of you are already experienced quilters. The goal of the class is not to teach you to quilt since that is not my expertise, but to explain the quilting features of your Ellisimo, how to use the quilting techniques, and the feet that can be used for each technique.
