May 11th, Erica Plank designer and owner of "Unseen Hands" will be offering a trunk show followed by a catherdal window pillow class. The trunk show is free to Quilt 4U Club members and class participants.
The trunk show will be at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday May 11th.
Erica will be teaching the cathedral window class following our club meeting. The class fee is $35.00 + a required 9 inch template to be used to make each block.
On Sunday, May 12th
Erica will teach a color/embroidery class. The fee for this class will be $45.00 with the pattern, fabric (with the tracing already completed), embroidery floss, embroidery needle and fabric medium included. Students will need an 8 inch embroidery hoop, a small flat edge paint brush and the store will have irons available. Since this is mother's day, it could be a class for mother/daughters or anyone wanting to do a fun project.This class will be from 10:00 - 2:00 as Erica lives out of state and this will allow her time to return home after the class.
The Saturday class will be a Cathedral Window. See pictures below for a sampling of her patterns.
Due to the costs associated with booking out-of-town designers, we will need to make a determination by April 23th
to see if we have enough students enrolled. Please sign up on our website at www.quilt4u.com. The payment will not be processed until April 23rd
if the classes fill. If the class is not filled, your payment will be deleted.
