Title: Sewing: “Quilted Fall Table Runner”
Description: Fun Fall Project! A falling leaves table runner brightens any spot needing a bit of color. In this class we will make and piece blocks, sew borders, round off the corners, and attach binding all around. This quick project will have pieces cut and prepared before you arrive – ready for you to start sewing!
**Students are highly encouraged to bring their own sewing machine. You are also welcome to bring your personal sewing supplies if you have them (scissors, rotary cutters, rulers, needles, etc.). If you don’t have a machine of your own, there will be a limited number available for a small rental fee. Please see tickets below to purchase a rental. There will be extra scissors, cutters, needles, etc. on site for anyone who needs them.**
This class is for confident beginners and up.
Instructor: Beth Hunter “I have been a history teacher at the college level for eight years and taught in public schools as a short- and long-term substitute before earning my degrees. I serve on the Executive Board and Board of Directors for the Alabama Historical Association and am a member of various historical societies and groups. Outside the classroom, my passion is quilting. I am currently writing a book about Alabama quilts, county by county. As a life-long Alabamian, I am interesting in the stories behind quilts – why were they made, out of what material, for what occasion, etc. While I came to quilting and sewing later in life, I have fond memories of sewing as a child with my grandmother. I feel quilting is an art form and should be celebrated. For this to continue, we need to teach others, especially younger sewists. I am currently enrolled in Martha Pullen’s online course Vintage, Classic, and Contemporary Sewing. At the successful conclusion, I will be a licensed teacher for these areas. Two highlights of my pursuits so far are that a quilt I made was recently shown in Hitachi, Japan and in 2018 I presented a lecture in France at the Museum of the Great War on how women’s fashion changed as a result of World War I. I live in Hayden (Blount Co) with my husband, Russ, and youngest son, Kirk.
