National Teacher, Diane Harris, the StashBandit, will be presenting her trunk show "100 Small Quilts" and will be teaching three classes:

  • String Piecing - NEW SUPPLY LIST ADDED     For String Piecing, I will give dozens of ideas and each participant can choose one they love. It's such a wide open technique, god forbid that I limit us to just one thing. LOTS and lots of fun, inspiration, and many shapes, settings and more.  Not to worry about limits!!

StarQuar Supply List

  • Hand Look Binding by Machine - Learn an easy and reliable method for binding all your quilt projects by machine with this technique that looks as pretty as a hand-sewn finish. You'll practice all the steps in class and leave well-equipped to bind your next quilt in a fraction of the time. Now you can finish a quilt more quickly and still be proud of the result. You may never again sew a binding down by hand! Suitable for all skill levels. Click on class title for supply list.
