Class Description

Do you have a collection of t-shirts – belonging to you, your kids, or your partner – that are just too sentimental to part with? Come take this class and make a beautiful keepsake quilt. T-shirt quilts are a fun, beginner-friendly quilting project. Learn how to stabilize and cut the t-shirts, piece them, add sashing, a border, and backing, then quilt on a sewing machine. At the end of the six weeks you will have completed a throw size quilt. What a great way to remember special events or a time in your life! Do you have a high school senior? Make them a gift they will always cherish. This class is for any skill level. Use one of the studio’s sewing machines or bring your own.

Bring at least 6 freshly washed t-shirts to the first class meeting along with a notebook and pen. All other needed supplies (stabilizer, batting, thread, fabric) will be discussed at the first class meeting so you can acquire them in time for later class meetings.

Sliding Scale Guidance

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
