Friday & Saturday, September 22 - 23, 2017
Joan Yoder's quilting journey began at age 16 and continues today. She is basically self taught but enjoy taking classes when she can, making lots of ‘practice’ pieces, and honing my speed piecing skills.
Joan has become a speed piecer out of necessity. Using modern techniques to create traditional patterns fascinates her.
Most of her teaching has been one-on-one or with a group of quilting friends. Joan loves to share her knowledge and skills with anyone willing to learn or try a new idea. Creating quilts for friends and family to love is a passion. The basics of fabric, threads, machines and a ¼” seam can empower anyone who wants to piece & quilt.
Friday, 9 am to noon
Instructor: Joan Yoder
Do you like mug rugs? Would you like to make some seasonal mug rugs?
This half day class will show you how to make the mug rugs using techniques to appliqué by fusible web, quilt using machine stitches, and do mitered binding. Mug Rugs can be done in just about any size, but a 4”x6” or larger is more fun!
Improve your skills: appliquéing by machine, adding creative stitching, doing machine quilting, and adding to your imagination!
