The Yardstick will be welcoming back freelance Educator Diana Cedolia on Wednesday, April 8th from 9 - 3 to learn, learn, learn.
Diana is such a wealth of knowledge and shares freely. We have a day of education planned. Learn about some tools to make your projects easier. Diana will be bringing much eye candy to inspire. Samples galore!!
She will show how to use specialty feet, information about stabilizers, info about software and getting the most from your machine.
Be prepared to learn lots.
The fee for the day will be $45 which includes lunch.
Sign up early since space is limited.
Heirloom is the Deb Yedziniak's specialty and she will be teaching a hands on 2 day class in heirloom sewing. It was requested after last year's class to use heirloom in other than a pillow.
Deb has designed some projects just for us an heirloom summer nightgown and a hostess apron. The class went away raving that they had never learned so much in one class before after last year's pillow class. There will be a trunk show of inspiration Tuesday night after class.
All this for $98 for the two days of classes and lunch each day.
There will be a fee for supplies.
Our Floriani seminar this spring will be Software Gala on June 12 & 13from 10-5 with a meet & greet on June 11th from 5-7 with refreshments.

Hoopsisters classes are planned for the last Saturday in each month, so plan to come and work on the quilt you have started Feathered Star, Jacobean Journey or start the new one for this year Sewn Seeds. It is a lot of fun to create your quilt blocks totally in the hoop. That included any piecing, applique, embroidery, quilting and any other techniques the sisters think up. Each year there is a new twist to increase our knowledge and flexibility. If you want to join and need to meet on a week day let me know and I will schedule a week day also.
