Teaching in Las Vegas – Come Take a Class With Me!

I’m excited to announce the next round of classes I will teaching here in my hometown of fabulous Las Vegas! They will take place at The Christmas Goose Quilt Shop and you can register for any of them by calling the shop at 702-877-1158.

Here’s the Schedule:

April 29 (Wednesday) 6-9 PM String of Pearls

One of my favorite quilts of all-time, String of Pearls allows you to showcase a favorite set of fabrics all in the same quilt, with plenty of negative space to feature fun machine quilting. During this one session class, we will learn how to make the blocks and set them together. Cost is $20 plus pattern purchase from The Christmas Goose.

May 30 (Saturday) 10:30 – 5:30 Modern Machine Quilting

The one that started it all – Charming Chevrons was my first modern quilt, made in 2012. We will learn how to make the smaller version shown above, but you can easily make it in any size simply by adding more charms! Class will cover construction of half square triangles and possible setting ideas. Cost is $20 plus pattern purchase from The Christmas Goose.

Won’t you join me? I look forward to seeing you!

    Hi Christa, I’m hoping that this time I will be able to take at least two of your classes, I want to take the chevron class, so that I can finally use the pack of fabric I won, and I can always use the quilting class. I wish we had more classes on how to quilt, beyond just the basics, hands on is always better. Thanks for doing these here!

    I am looking forward to meeting you at you Modern Machine Quilting class.! This will be my first FMQ class, hoping to push my self taught skills to the next level.

    Wish I lived in LV instead of Maine, Christa! (besides the fact that we still have glaciers in our yard and then there’s the weather where you are!)

    I wanted to take your String of Pearls class, but I will be out of town. Sorry, maybe next time/. I hope it goes well for you. Sincerely Caroline Rohrer

    I was just going to write the very same thing….a bit tough to commute from NY. I love seeing what you are doing, wish you the VERY best in your endeavors, and do so admire your work, your zeal, and your energy.
