Perfect your Binding with Rita Meyerhoff | Sept 4th from 9:30 - 2

Love it or hate it - your binding has to live up to the beauty of your quilt. This 4 hour class will give you the opportunity to learn, then actually apply perfect binding to a placemat sized project that you provide to class. Then you get to ask all those burning questions you still have - like how to bind scallops and other specially shaped edges. 

If you have a project or pattern that you've been postponing because you don't quite feel secure in your binding skills or techniques, bring it with you and get some tips.
