If you've always wanted to try quilting, this class is the place to start! Using one of my original designs, I will guide you through measuring and cutting, piecing, basting, quilting, and binding. Learn what makes a quilt "modern," color and pattern selection, and helpful tips for creating your own original quilts. By course end, you'll have assembled a simple quilt top, basted your quilt, and have the skills to add the finishing touches. Bring your sewing machine to class and visit whatcomcommunityed.com to enroll. Prerequisite: basic sewing skills and working knowledge of your sewing machine.

In the Make.Shift Gallery during the months of August and September, a group of artists created original works inspired by the beloved childhood literary staple, the Little Golden Books series.

Please join us for the opening reception as part of Bellingham’s art walk first friday in August (8/5). The studios of Make.Shift’s resident artist will also be open as usual. The exhibit runs August 2nd – September 24th and is open to the public during normal gallery hours, Tuesday-Saturday 12-5 PM.
For more information about art walk or Make.Shift please visit our website at makeshiftproject.com or contact Lauren Iida at gallery@makeshiftproject.com.
