Hand-Quilting (In-Person)


with Sheryl Kessler

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 1, 2023 at 10 am, runs for 4 weeks

Saturdays, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

The act of hand-stitching is a meditative and relaxing process that produces beautiful and unique results without any machine required. Learn the techniques of slow-stitching by creating your own small(wall-hanging)-sized quilt. All techniques will be taught by hand, but students are welcome to bring personal sewing machines if they wish. The following methods will be taught: 

  • Patchwork 
  • Applique (raw edge and turned edge) 
  • Traditional quilting and tied quilting 
  • Binding 

Benefit by working alongside other participants, to enjoy conversation and company and to learn from, and admire, each other’s work!   

Please note:  All students enrolling in on-campus courses must submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and at least one additional booster upon registration. Registrations lacking vaccine documentation or approved medical exemption one week after submission are subject to withdrawal. Requests for medical or religious exemptions must be approved by PAFA’s head of security. Withdrawals for noncompliance will result in fees. See CE Policy Guide for complete COVID safety requirements and policies.
