|“Making Faces In Fabric”
This class is fun on so many levels! It was inspired from Melissa Averinos new book, “Making Faces in Fabric”. If you have taken Susan’s Machine Quilting Classes this is a great addition to improve those skills. We will first create a simple (funny) face in the morning using fabric collage techniques (and NO you do not have to be a portrait artist!) using unique fabrics, then in the afternoon we will machine quilt all the details such as eyelashes, cheeks, hair, etc. It is easy to create a face if you don’t have to make it look like anyone special. Just play and have fun with it!!! These could be made into tote bags, placemats, small wall hangings, pillows and more! This will be a no stress day of playing with fabric and threads! It’s like eating potato chips! You can’t make just one…
It’s really going to be fun! These faces are not to be taken too seriously, they are just for fun!
Teacher: Susan Edmonson Fee: $55.00
Date: May 1 Time: 10:30-5:30
Age limit for the camps is 9-15 years old. The projects will be fairly simple, however, your child should know how to thread a sewing machine. The campers will need to bring a sewing machine (or you can rent one of ours for $5 a day). Please pick up a supply list when you register for camp.
This year’s kid’s camp is full of projects that will appeal to both girls and boys. There are many projects including a backpack, a custom dog leash and collar and a pillowcase. All of these items will feature the Fortnite Llama. Come by the shop to see samples. Space will be limited to 5 students per session so please reserve you space as soon as possible.

|Love at Sea
Storm at Sea is a beautiful traditional pattern that is notoriously difficult to piece. Come see how you can make it easier by using the Diamond Rects and Square Squared rulers. The pattern assumes you will use those rulers, but I will suggest alternatives if you do not want to use them. Class will focus on construction of the basic units so you can make the quilt shown on the pattern, my variation, or your own variation. Please note that you will find this class easier if you have already learned these rulers or consider yourself an intermediate quilter. If you have less experience you are certainly welcome, but expect a challenge! You can check out my quilts on my blog: ZippyQuilts.blog.
Teacher: Mary Puckett Fee: $45.00 Dates: June 10:00-4:00
There are many, many ways to improvise both blocks and quilts—come learn a few of them and decide how you want to improvise a quilt of your own!

Weekly “Sit and Sew”
Sit & Sew will be every Monday from 10:00-3:30. Leave the housework at home, bring out those projects that need finishing and come on over for some "sewing camaraderie". There will always be someone to help you if you get to one of those spots that you just can't figure out. I know I can accomplish more if I am sewing away from home without the ringing phone and the laundry that always needs to be done.
Mondays from 10 - 3:30

STUDIO STITCH’S WEATHER POLICY
Our weather policy for classes is to follow the Guilford County School System’s schedule for closings and delays. If Guilford County Schools are closed, our classes for that day are canceled, but the store may or may not be open according to the actual road conditions as the day progresses – please call before you come in if schools are closed. If there is a 2 hour delay for schools we will be on our regular schedule and classes will be held.
All classes at Studio Stitch require registration prior to the day of class. Please call, e-mail, or register in person with a staff member. All class fees should be paid in full upon registration. Any class supply lists and/or special instructions should be supplied upon registration. Please make sure you pick them up when you register. Classroom machines are available upon request, a $5.00/day fee will be added to the cost of Class. Student should be prepared to provide their own thread. Please contact us if you are unsure what type of thread is required for your class.
Studio Stitch reserves the right to cancel any class (including mastery classes) if the minimum enrollment is not met. Our rule of thumb is to make the final call (based on enrollment) one week prior to the start date of class. We will do our best to let each of our students know if a class has been canceled, but ultimately it is the customer’s responsibility to check with Studio Stitch to confirm the class has made. If a class is canceled by Studio Stitch and/or teacher due to low enrollment student will get full refund or store credit of class fee. If a class is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances including illness, weather, etc we will do our best to reschedule at a later date. If a student should need to cancel or drop out of a class they will get full refund if they let Studio Stitch know at least one week prior to class start date. There is no refund if student cancels within the week before class.
