Quilted Placemats Workshop

Sunday, February 25th from 12pm to 3:30pm - FULL


$80 plus supplies



This beginner quilting workshop will make a set of two placements with stripes on one side and a coordinating backing on the other. You can choose whether you want horizontal or vertical stripes. The horizontal stripe version uses three different colors/prints and the vertical stripe version uses five different colors/prints. Finished placemat size is 20" x 14". This workshop will be taught in one 3.5-hour session.


We recommend students bring and use their own sewing machine. During the workshop, everyone should be able to complete at least one placemat but students may need to complete the second on their own after learning the first one. If you need to use one of our machines and don't finish, you'll need to schedule a private lesson to come back in and finish.




Materials & supplies are additional and must be purchased at least one day before class, preferably sooner so students can complete all homework prior to first session. Materials needed include:


1/4 yard each of 5 assorted prints (for vertical version center) OR 1/4 yard each of 3 assorted prints (for horizontal version center)

1/2 yard fabric (for backing)

1/4 yard fabric (for binding)

1/2 yard batting

quilting ruler

1 spool coordinating thread

rotary cutter

cutting mat


* Please note you will need a 1/4" presser foot, which is specific to your sewing machine. If you don't have one, we can show you how to achieve the 1/4" seams you'll need.


Also needed:

iron to press fabric at home in advance

straight and large safety pins, fabric scissors



• purchase and pre-wash all fabrics (do not wash the batting)

• press fabrics and trim selvedges (make sure to remove any wording/branding along edges)

• oil/clean sewing machine and attach 1/4" pressure foot (if using your own)

• wind one bobbin with your coordinating thread


Previous experience with a sewing machine is required. If you've never sewn on a machine before, we recommend our beginner class or a beginner sewing lesson. In this workshop, you will receive direct instruction and work at your own pace. We will meet for 3.5 hours. If you need additional time or help with the project, you may add on private sessions as needed. Please note there are NO make-up sessions and this workshop is non-refundable.
