Ellen Graf’s beginning quilting students will learn the fundamentals using the nine-patch block in “The Little Black Dress of Quilting: Nine-Patch” during the week of December 9-13.
Continuing with quilting will be “My Latest, Greatest Quilt”, also with Ellen from January 6 – 10. Bring a pattern in mind or a quilt top in progress and Ellen will help you move your project forward.
We’ll follow that with an “Open Studio” time, January 13-15. Come and knit, quilt, weave, make baskets, sew, etc.
Cold weather requires warm woolens, so Sandy De Master and Mary Germain will be here for their annual “Knitting Retreat”, January 16 – 19. Open to beginners on up who would like help with their projects and the time set aside to knit in the company of others. Ready to weave? Connie Westbrook is offering “Handwoven Bags and Totes”, February 3 -7. There’s a choice of three styles to weave (the Chicken Track Rag Bag is shown here). Connie will also show you how to personalize your newest accessory.
February 11-13 and 14-15 are set aside for Jeanette Biederman and Rich Prange to teach basketry. They will offer two classes titled “Splint-Woven Basketry”, both independent study-type with several choices of beyond beginner to advanced baskets. It is almost 20 years that Rich and Jeanette have made the trip for our Sievers in Winter classes. That’s a lot of baskets (and fun)!Share Sievers with Friends...
