Happenings at the Loft






How about this… it's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating Row by Row shops, including The Quilt Loft in Upland, and receive a free pattern for a row in your quilt. Combine your rows from other stores in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

The Next Classes on the Horizon


We would like to welcome Pam Nourse to the Quilt Loft faculty.
Pam Nourse took her first quilting class in 1989, when rotary cutters were still regarded with suspicion and the quilting world was scandalized by a machine-quilted Best of Show award at the AQS show in Paducah. Since then, she has learned to make quilts by machine, but still loves the portability and meditative nature of hand work. Her quilts have won First Place and Honorable Mention ribbons at Maine Quilts (the Maine state show). She and her cats divide their time between Maine and California, where she is attending graduate school. Pam will be teaching two classes this fall and we think you will like them as much as we do.


"Beginning Needle Turn Applique"
with
Pam Nourse



Learn to do hand applique using an easy needle-turn method. In class you will learn to prepare and place your applique shapes without marking directly on your fabric, and how to stitch all the basic applique shapes you will need for any project (including inner and outer curves, inner and outer points, bias stems, and perfect circles).

Classes will be:

Tuesday October 20, 
10:00am - 2:00pm

and

Tuesday October 27, 
10:00am - 2:00pm

"Beginning Hand Piecing"
with
Pam Nourse



Learn to do portable patchwork! While the thought of hand-piecing an entire quilt may be daunting, handwork can be carried with you anywhere-few stitches at a time in waiting rooms or at kids' sports events soon add up to a finished project. This nine-patch and square-in-a-square wall hanging will teach you the basics of making and working with templates, stitching straight grain and bias seams, and accurately matching corners.

Class will be:

Tuesday October 20, 
10:00am - 4:00pm
