Home & Garden - T-Shirt Quilting for Absolute Beginners

Preserve your memories forever with Abby's Attic Sewing & Crafting Studio! Learn how to use a sewing machine, proper cutting and measuring techniques, fabric choice, quilt design, assembly and more. The first class will cover an introduction to quilting and shirt preparation. The second class covers sewing 101 and in the third class, you will continue constructing your quilt in the studio. Students will need to bring a minimum of 16 t-shirts (or any other sentimental garments) to the first class and the rest will be provided. A simple grid quilt of 16 squares takes approximately 18 hours to complete and larger or more complex quilts will require additional studio time. Open studio time is an additional discounted fee of $5 per hour for t-shirt quilters and can be arranged with Abby's Attic.
