Colleen Granger (CA)

June 19 – Program: Playing with Precuts – Trunk Show

For those who don’t know me, my name is Colleen Granger and I am a quilt-aholic. I am also one of those people who love what they do…I am a quilter! I am an author, designer, teacher, quilt maker, and long arm machine quilter. You can usually find me playing with fabric somewhere between Alaska and California and beyond. I travel to teach and I get to meet the nicest people.

As an instructor and designer it is my goal to break projects down to their easiest form of construction so that everyone can be successful.  While I am sure that I am not 100%, I do strive to make my books and projects easy to construct, but to make them look difficult.   

June 20 – Workshop: Kelsey’s Whole-cloth
and Kid’s Kick About Jackets

Kelsey’s Whole-cloth Jacket and the Kid’s Kick About Jacket, are the easiest of the jacket projects. These projects combine some great fabric with easy machine quilting and a sweatshirt to get a one of a kind jacket.  These are good projects to learn or broaden machine quilting techniques, a walking foot is recommended.  Two pocket options will be discussed and demonstrated. Can be started in a one-day session, some people may finish in one day.

I know it’s HOT, but before we know it we will be wondering where summer went! How cool would it be to learn how to make jackets to use as Christmas gifts! (I have to start thinking about that this far ahead…or I never get it done!) I’m already envisioning little bundles of wearable warm. Grandsons running around in customized jackets!

This will be a one-day class, so the cost is $40.  There is no kit fee for this class.
