A Patchwork Rug for Every Mug

You've probably heard of them through various crafty blogs - mug rugs - wee quilted placemats on which you can place your mug of coffee or tea and a treat. So much more civilized and less wasteful than using a paper napkin! This class is an excellent way for beginners who are curious about patchwork and quilting to try their hand at it by making what is essentially a mini-quilt. With this simple, super-basic project, we will learn all the steps involved in quilt-making at a much smaller and manageable scale.

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.

    • Level: Beginner. But you have successfully taken sewing basics or have equivalent sewing experience. You are comfortable threading a machine and stitching in a straight(ish) line.
    • We provide:  everything you could possibly need - a rainbow of cotton fabric, batting, background fabric and binding, as well as sewing machines!
    • You bring:  yourself
    • Class length: 3 hours
