Many wonderful design possibilities can be made using Laura’s 20-degree wedge ruler. Don’t be fooled by the look of complexity. These quilts are surprisingly easy, not to mention fun to make!
Laura Nownes will be teaching her pattern using the 20 degree ruler. This is the same class she has taught at Asilomar just a month ago! Laura will be holding 4 sessions on Tuesday evenings which gives you time to sew and piece between each session.
Cost: $145 (you can purchase the 20 degree ruler directly from Laura at the first session)
Instructor: Betsy LaHonta
This fun bag class is being taught by the pattern designer herself, Betsy LaHonta. Hear her tips and tricks for working with Kraft-Tex and learn her techniques for fabulous bag making!
Enjoy three different looks from the same bag! With clever construction, movable straps, and a tuck-away top panel, the choice is yours. Wear it as a large carryall, a mid-sized drawstring bag, or a sleeker, smaller tote. Zip up your phone or keys in the secure outside pocket and organize other essentials in interior compartments. With the look and durability of a leather bag, this pattern sews up like a dream in kraft-tex and cotton fabric. Wear it your way.
