Upcoming Sewcials


Saturday April 29, 2017 • Freddy Moran
FREDDY'S BACK ... WITH A NEW TWIST ON FABRIC COLLAGE

Freddy Moran’s fabric-collage technique is fast, fun and produces dramatic results: glueing and then sewing fussy-cut florals (or other showy images) onto a black-and-white background. But she’s always innovating, trying graphic colored prints as backgrounds and now flannels. Her results with polka dot flannels, striped flannels and other graphic flannel prints are great!

Minimum enrollment is 15; $50 for SFQG members, $65 for nonmembers.
NOTE: This Sewcial is on the last Saturday of the month to accommodate Freddy’s schedule.


Saturday May 20, 2017 • Sherri Lynn Wood
MAKING DO WITH OLD CLOTHES AND A PAIR OF SCISSORS

Discover the satisfaction of transforming old clothes into striking functional quilts that carry meaning and message. Learn deconstruction strategies for preserving elements like pockets, plackets, necklines, and sleeve curves. Stabilize and combine different types and weights of materials, including silk, linen, knits, poly, wool, and denim. Build scissor ”muscles“ along with ruler-free rotary cutting confidence, incorporate stash scraps, and learn how to compose with natural fitting shapes and bleeds.

Minimum enrollment is 15; $70 for SFQG members, $85 for nonmembers.


Saturday September 23, 2017 • Rami Kim
HEXIES MADE EASY

Create Hexie quilts or bags using Rami’s innovative, no-hand-sewing, quilt-as-you- go technique. You’ll make sample Hexie quilts from gorgeous batik circles, conveniently precut by Anthology Fabrics. And because the circles include built-in backing, your quilts will already be backed and quilted once all of the Hexies are pieced together!

Minimum enrollment is 10; $60 for SFQG members, $75 for nonmembers.


Saturday October 21, 2017 • Jenny K. Lyon
INTRO TO FEARLESS FREE-MOTION QUILTING

Learn to free-motion quilt in a supportive and fun atmosphere. Jenny will bring numerous quilts, photos and samples to illustrate what is taught in class. We will work on 5 beautiful and fun motifs that you can put on your own quilts using your home sewing machine!

Minimum enrollment is 10; $40 for SFQG members, $55 for nonmembers.
