Sew Bee It: Traditional Quilting Workshop

Course Overview

Tradition, handwork and community. Enjoy the elements of quilting bees of a bygone era. Learn to quilt on a treadle or hand crank machine as well as hand quilting. Participants will work side by side with Crystal Nelson, proprietor of Crystal's Log Cabin Quilts in Grand Marais, as she teaches you to operate and sew on antique treadle sewing machines. As a memorable project, each student will make two quilt blocks, one for themselves to take home and one for the ongoing North House Community Quilt. You will also be introducted to hand quilting on a frame. Beginners and experienced quilters are encouraged to participate, as we explore the traditional approaches to quilting.
