Click here to download Pick-a-Jewel Supply List

Date: Friday June 5 and Saturday June 6 from 9am to 4pm

Registration Fee:  $225.00

Kit Fee: $65.00

Class Overview: This class is based on three of our newest patterns, the Ruby, Sapphire, and Amethyst.   You will pick one of the 3 cut-and-sew foam bra patterns and see all three made in the class. All of these bras (full band fabric, partial band fabric and full band lace) use cut and sew foam for light foam lining without the padded look of pre-formed foam cups. You can even combine the looks so you can make a Ruby/Amethyst combo.  You will learn the tricks of the trade to sew up a foam lined cup so you can “hide the headlights” or to smooth your profile under t-shirts. Cut-and-sew cups have many advantages. Besides being made of a lightweight foam fabric, you can use virtually ANY stretch fabric to cover the cups – even fabrics way too stretchy to use in a regular bra. Best of all, you use your own bra pattern to create the foam cup so all of your lift and shaping is retained. In this class, you will learn the tricks of the trade to sew it up and finish the top edge with a professional look. You must be familiar with the construction of a bra in order to attend this course.​

You will create a simple pixel quilt with solid fabrics, learning techniques including strip piecing, pressing and accurate intersections and will pin baste our quilt top to prepare it for quilting. You will plan your design and quilt your quilt with minimal marking.  You will be using 12wt thread so the quilting will create not only texture, but design on your fabric.
