Curves Class By Jen Carlton-Bailly

The Corvallis Modern Quilt Guild is thrilled to announce a course taught by Portland Modern Quilt Guild member Jen Carlton-Bailly. Jen is a great teacher and an all around fun person to be around. Her work has been featured on the cover of Modern Patchwork and she taught at the most recent QuiltCon event as well. 

Workshop Description: Does the idea of sewing curves scare the heck out of you?
Don’t let it! In this class, students will learn three different methods of sewing curves – pinning, gluing, and freehand. They’ll learn tips and tricks to creating a beautiful curve as well as tips on how to square up their blocks and sew them together with beautiful matching points. We will play with several different block design from easy to challenging.
Students will leave with four quilt blocks and tons of new ways to sew curves!

The course will be on August 12th, 2017 from 1 pm - 4 pm at the Corvallis Public Library in their main meeting room at 645 NW Monroe Ave, Corvallis, OR 97330.  We are unable to take payment at the time of the class so please pay by Paypal at the button below or by Check/Cash at a prior CMQG event (sew day or meeting).
