New Class - Gentle Improv Curves Pillow

I'm teaching a new class this fall at my LQS, Pennington Quilt Works (Pennington, NJ)! It's the Gentle Improvisational Curves Pillow that I made last year for the Cascade Fabrics Blog Hop. This kind of pillow would be a perfect accent piece in your home, and yes, you - YOU - can make it!

When: Thursday, Oct. 22, 6-9 pm
Fee: $27 + materials

I realize I've written a tutorial to make the pillow, but if you want some one-on-one attention while practicing sewing curves, this is your chance! I'll also teach you how to sew pinless curves and how to pair up your fabrics to make them flow.

I'll also be teaching this class at Byrne Sewing Connection in Doylestown, PA next year (February 3th for Byrne's Creative Bees). Join me if you want to try a new technique!

A couple more pillows commissioned by my mom - she made me use the same fabric :) Each pillow is unique! Because improv is amazing.

From my Classes and Lectures page:

In this class, you'll learn how to sew gentle curves and let yourself experiment with "non-precise" piecing - that is, your curves will be improvised. You will practice the technique of sewing curves pinless with your machine. Finally, we'll make an 18.25" square pillow (fits an 18" pillow form) to create something that will be truly versatile, striking, and comfortable in your home!

*Shameless advertising over.* :) But really, I love teaching and I'd love if you could make it!

  1. Aww! PA too far to travel from RI, but maybe some day I will look you up when I am in your area! Beautiful pillow, and thanks for the tute. I love one-on-one help, though, so that is sweet that you're offering a class!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
