Event Overview

Now's the time to learn how to sew a quilt!


Have you always wanted to learn how to make a quilt? Or reacquaint yourself with sewing because you haven't sewn in forever? Do bright colors, crafting, design, all things miniature, and creative community make you happy? Well then, this is the perfect opportunity for you to make something that incorporates all of these elements.



You'll learn all the steps to make a simple strip or log cabin quilt but on a mini scale. Think about the size of a placemat. You'll choose fabric first, then spend time sewing your pieces together. When that's done, you'll quilt and bind it. Finally, I think you might cry because you made it, and it's just so darn gorgeous. 

Open to ages 12 and up. If you'd like to sew with a child ages 8-11, both parent and child are asked to register. Six spots available.


If you'd like to bring a special piece of fabric to incorporate into your quilt, feel free. Also, fabric purchases at the shop on that day will be 15% off.


Address: 3327 Brighton Blvd. Denver, CO 80216 in the RiNo Art District, across the street from The Source, and located inside the Converge Coworking Space. There is parking on the street and in the back of the building. You'll see an alley to the right of the doors which leads to the parking lot.




Prerequisites

Some sewing knowledge. You'll be asked to sign a sewing waiver on the day of class.

What's Provided

If you'd like to bring a special piece of fabric to incorporate into your quilt, feel free. I will provide the other materials. The fee covers use of our sewing machines, thread, cutting tools, instruction, fabric, and quilt batting.

MORE ABOUT YOUR HOST

I have a mission! I want to bring people together to create, and grow a collective of curious creatives and artists in arms who wish to share their passion for making and hand crafting beautiful things for the pure joy of it. I believe all art comes from the soul, the architect, and the hands and eyes are the builders for those inspired ideas. I myself am a bead and jewelry enthusiast, but I want to gather makers of all arts to inspire, support each other, and share. I'd love to build a creative community, and bring together others who have a passion for making things. I also sing, play 5 instruments, and songwrite with my darling song sisters, The Warm Honeys, Sweet Water Remedy, and Starling in Denver and Boulder.

Ellen Pierce co-teaches the Songwriter Share Workshop. She is also the co- founder of Yoga in Your Park (YiP), coach trained as a therapist and performer, is one to spark your internal inspiration. When you are with her you feel like she is singing just for you - her songs are designed to trickle in, open you to the depths of who you really are and dissolve any lingering tensions. Ellen is known for her relentless idealism and joyful persistence. Ellen received a master's degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy (Naropa University) and was trained in the art of yoga at a the Nosara Yoga Institute at the 500 hour level with extensive (700 hours) of training at Children's Hospital Colorado in Yoga Therapy. Two parts honey, one part sting, Ellen will inspire you to live into your next iteration with grace and ease.

Abby Lee is my assistant and co-teacher and will sometimes teach my jewelry classes. She says: Hi beautiful people! I'm Abby and I originate from the suburbs of Chicago, but traded the city lights for the mountain peaks! I am a bilingual Spanish special/general education teacher and an inspiring family and student advocate. I love working with all walks of life and growing everyday in new experiences. I love to explore and play outdoors, cook, see live music, watch movies, practice yoga and spend time with my friends and new wonderful people I meet. I am so excited to create wonderful works of art with everyone!
