Bust Your Stash with Creative Grid & Penny Haren

Bust your Stash with Creative Grids

Join us for an action packed “Play before you Pay” Creative Grids® event. All rulers and fabrics are provided so you can make three or four different blocks – and learn additional techniques – in a fun and easy class. Create blocks that include fudge factors so beginners to experts can sew them in a matter of minutes. Make perfect “Log Cabin” blocks by trimming each round as you go. Learn how to sew star blocks with floating points – and never cut a triangle. Create “Square on Square” blocks in two sizes from one tool. And, finally, sew a twelve petal Dresden Plate block and learn how to “separate” it to create even more design possibilities.

Class will be held at:
6:00pm - 9:00pm

  • Log Cabin– 6” – CGRJAWMN6
  • Strippy Star - CGRDH2
