- Most obvious – learn a new skill. Whether its a new tool, new technique, or new pattern, taking a class is a great way to learn. Your teacher is an expert in class content and can explain to you in a way you can understand. We all learn a little differently and a good instructor will be able to help you understand the concept.
- Refresh or perfect a skill. If it’s been a while since you’ve quilted or you’re struggling with a tool or technique a class is a great way to get “back in the saddle”.
- It’s the little things. In class you may learn a new way to pin, perfect your quarter inch or learn to spin your seams..
- You’ll be encouraged to change your rotary cutter blade. None of us change it often enough – go change your blade right now! You will thank me!
- You’ll “need” to buy new fabric – like you need a reason! Of course you can use something out of your stash – but that new fabric line would be perfect!
- In class you’ll get to see the fabric combinations of all the other students. I’m always amazed by the different styles and colors chosen for projects. And inspired!
- Sometimes there is Show and Tell – more inspiration!
- Make new friends, hang out with other quilters, share ideas and laugh!
