Wefty Fabric Weaving

Wefty Fabric Weaving

In this fabric weaving class, you will learn how to create a 16″ x 19″ fabric panel that can be finished as a mini quilt or used in other projects such as purses, pillows or tote bags. You will be able to choose from a star or diamond pattern and create variations on either design by using different color combinations.

In the first session, you will cut the strips, prepare the weaving board, cut your strips, press and starch the strips and pin the first layer. You may have homework if you don’t finish these tasks. Class fee includes use of AccuCut Die Cutting machine to cut strips.

In the second session, you will weave the 2nd and 3rd layers, fuse the weaving and sew around the edge.

Prerequisite: None. Familiarity with cutting is helpful, but not necessary. If you decide to make your panel into a quilt or other project after the class, you will need sewing and/or quilting skills.

Age Requirement: Open to ages 16 and up

Class length:  6.5 hours in three sessions – first session is 2.5 hours, remaining are 2 hours each

Instructor: Mary Siekmann
