Join Lucy as she teaches us how to make a quilted placemat.

Attendees will need to bring their own fabric and batting to this class. Please read the supply list provided below. The supply list includes the measurements for a single placement as well as the measurements for a set of four matching placemats, depending on how many placemats you would like to make.

Please let us know on this registration form if you plan to use one of the library’s sewing machines for this class or if you will be bringing your own.

This sewing class is best for adults and teens who have intermediate to advanced sewing skills. The basics of using a sewing machine will not be covered during this class.
