FAP1 | Quilting With Unusual Materials
Jerry Granata | 9 am - 5 pm (break from 12 pm - 2 pm)

Jerry Granta PincussionLimited to 15 participants. Intermediate skill level.

In this exciting class, you will stroll down the aisles you usually pass by in a fabric shop.  All those beautifully silky, shiny, luscious fabrics you wouldn’t think would work in a quilt might be just the things you’ve been looking for to give your project that “wow” factor. You will learn how to work with silk, satin, vinyl, theatrical gels, even aluminum foil, among many others! And don’t think this class is just for art/contemporary/modern quilters. Traditional quilters will appreciate the way these unusual fabrics work so beautifully in such patterns as Pinwheel, Log Cabin, Nine Patch, Bear’s Paw, Lone Star, and many others! This is definitely an “out-of-the-box” experience so if you’re ready, prepare to be amazed!


A BERNINA machine will be provided for this class

Required in addition to basic supplies:

  • Fabric and supply kit $20
  • Monopoly monofilament tread by Superior
  • Assorted specialty threads (metallic, rayon, silk, etc.)
