Jane Tavernier, fabric artist and Fairfield Glade Art Guild member, will be teaching a class for the beginner/intermediate sewer/quilter who would like to enhance her skills while making a beautiful quilted jacket as she learns. Sewing and quilting can be very artistic, especially with a free motion quilting foot, which is one of the skills taught in this class.
Tavernier received an associate degree from Schoolcraft Community College and a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University. She has been teaching quilting and sewing classes for more than 30 years and has won awards from the Art Guild at FG, the Cumberland County Fair and various quilt shows. Her preferences for her work are fabric and multi-media where she mixes fabric with other media.
For this class, students will need a sewing machine in good working condition with a walking foot and a free motion quilting foot. For the beginner sewer/quilter, Tavernier will have a very simple jacket pattern available to use. Students will need to bring their own fabrics (see supply list for fabrics required). The intermediate sewer/quilter can bring a pattern and fabrics that she chooses or choose a jacket pattern from the instructor. These students should pick up a supply list as well.
This three-session class will meet on Thursdays, Aug. 31 and Sept. 7 & 14, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Art Guild’s Plateau Creative Arts Center (PCAC). The class fee is $72 for Guild members and $90 for guests. The maximum class size is 12 students.
