In 1934 the Singer Manufacturing Company introduced a new sewing machine at the Chicago World’s Fair. Nicknamed the “Featherweight” because of its small size and light weight, it quickly became popular with sewists. Today it is sought after by quilters who appreciate its excellent stitch quality and ease of transport.
The Singer Featherweight Club meets monthly to sew blocks that were published weekly in the Kansas City Star newspaper from 1928 to 1961. The blocks have been updated using modern tools and techniques instead of templates.
In June you will learn how to make quarter-square triangle units, which will be used to make the Triplet (1933) and Rope and Anchor (1960) blocks.
The registration fee does not include the supplies for the class. A list of required supplies (fabric and notions) will be sent with your registration confirmation email.
