Curious about Barn Quilt Painting Class?

If you’ve ever seen the fun Barn Quilts that are¬†appearing on barns and homes, read on!

It’s always a nice surprise to spot them as I’m driving, and makes me feel like I would really like those people! ūüôā But, making one for yourself is a little daunting. There are so many supplies to figure out, patterns to explore, and decisions to make. You¬†are the perfect candidate for one of my classes!

I teach Barn Quilt painting in a 6hr class. Starting from a blank (pre-primed) board to a finished Barn Quilt ready to hang.  The Barn Quilt is completely water and weatherproof, no need to seal it later, just choose your spot, hang it up and enjoy!  I provide all the needed materials for class as well as instruction throughout the day.  I am a very well prepared teacher which makes for a relaxing and productive day.

Traveling throughout the PNW to teach, driving is the only way I can get all the supplies to each location. Please check my calendar for upcoming classes. Hint: if you want to see a class in progress, to get a feel for what it is like, stop in at the Stitchin Post in Sisters this Friday 5/17/19.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want a class in your area, or want to register for a local class.

Barn Quilt Take Over!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, can I just tell you how much fun these Barn Quilt Classes are?¬† I’ve been teaching both BIG and small classes.¬† It is a very manageable project, where everyone goes home with a finished¬† Barn Quilt.¬†¬† The process is pretty low-stress, and there’s lots of time for conversation.¬† Most will finish in about 5 hours, so when the class is scheduled for 6 hours, even the more complicated designs can be finished.¬† The next classes are scheduled at the Stitchin’ Post on August 17 and 18.¬† Check out their workshop and class page¬† to reserve your seat!¬† After that, there will be more classes in Eugene on August 23rd and 25th, send me a message to register, I’ll also advertise those on Facebook and Instagram. I teach at quilt guilds as well, so if your guild is interested, I do travel¬†throughout the Pacific Northwest.¬† I’m always adding new patterns, I’m sure you will find your favorite!
