“Let It Snow” Wall Hanging

Let-It-Snow-Class-Pg   Dates:  June 30, July 28, August 11, August 25, 2018  from 9:00AM-10:00PM 
*July 14 Class will meet from 8:30 am -9:30 am

The Kimberbell “Let It Snow!” wall hanging class is a fun, block-of-the-week project spanning five weeks.  Each class date will meet from 9am – 10am where students will hear a lecture and see a demonstration about the block of the wall hanging they will receive as a kit.

When Does It Start?

Our “official” day to pick up kits will be on Saturdays beginning June 30, 2018, and ending on August 25, 2018.

How Does It Work?

We will be utilizing a “punch card” system for completing your blocks on time each week! This is going to be fun! You’ll receive your official Let It Snow! Punch Card when you pick up your first block on Saturday, June 30, 2018. When you bring back your finished block the next week, you’ll get a special punch or stamp on that card. At the end of the event, you’ll be able to “redeem” those cards for a special prize!

What If I Don’t Get My Block Completed By The Next Week?

If the blocks come back late (later than the following Tuesday after the very next class) you’ll be able to pick up your next kit, but your card won’t be punched. We are excited to see your blocks and also give you a little incentive to not have any “unfinished projects!” 🙂

Who designed this class?

It’s important to note that these patterns have been created by Kim Christopherson of “Kimberbell Designs”. Please respect copyright by not sharing these weekly patterns with others. Thank you!

What Does The Let It Snow Wall Hanging Class Cost and Cover?

The sign-up fee is $40 per person and includes all four week’s patterns and fabric kits for each section of the wall hanging. Borders, binding, and backing will need to be purchased separately. There will also be a bit of fusible applique in this project. Approximately 1-1/2 yards of fusible web will need to be purchased if you do not already have this.

When Does the Class Meet?

You are welcome to pick up your kit on the dates listed below. We will be doing a short demo starting at 9 a.m. on each date. The demo will last no more than one hour.

Intro to Sewing class apronWednesday, August 22, 2018 from 5:30PM-8:30PM

Interested in learning (or re-learning if it’s been awhile!) how to sew?  Join us in our Intro to Sewing class to learn the basics of sewing.

  • PLEASE NOTE:  REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT FOR CLASS MUST BE MADE PRIOR TO THE FIRST CLASS.  CLASS IS LIMITED TO 4 STUDENTS, SO ENROLL NOW!  CALL (812) 471-7945 Or Register Online

Cost: $35

This class will go over getting comfortable at a sewing machine – it’s not as scary as it looks, we promise! – basic stitches and seams. You’ll also learn correct pressing and pinning techniques.

Kits are provided, which is our way of saying everything you need to create a skirt apron (pictured above) will be here waiting for you. Our sewing classroom is stocked with Baby Lock sewing machines, cutting mats, rotary cutters and irons to make this intro course fun and easy.

Why create a skirt apron? We chose this project because the gingham (checkered) fabric gives you good, built-in guidelines to help you sew a straight seam. The skirt apron pattern also uses simple sewing techniques and seams that you’ll be able to use and build on for future projects.
