My dream was realized in the summer of 2017 when the lease was signed, and my long arm moved from my home to 19045 S Beavercreek Rd, Oregon City, Oregon.

This is a streamlined version of Helene's Machine Quilting 101 class. The project samplers are smaller and faster to assemble and the size makes them easier to quilt in a domestic sewing machine. The techn iques taught are pretty much the same as the longer class but this version fits a 1-day formay and may be easier for some students to fit into a busy schedule. Skill level: Beginner and up.
Sashiko is an ancient form of Japanese needlework similar to but not as demanding as hand quilting. Its rustic beauty is used to grace many textile objects in Japan and is particularly well suited to embellish garments, quilts, purses and household items. In this class you will learn the basics of Sashiko stitching along with a little of the history and uses of this classical folk art. Students will stitch a small coaster/mug-rug. Skill level: Beginner.
