Fabric & Notions

If you’ve got any quilts that no longer spark joy, turn them into a coat! In this workshop you will learn how to transform your quilts into cosy coats using a pattern suitable for most sizes. 

This is a hands-on class cutting quilts and sewing them up into a wearable garment in two days. You may use a quilt you’ve already made, pre-quilted fabric or make the quilted panels specifically to make into a coat. Yes, this is a great opportunity to repurpose those orphan blocks and unfinished projects.



In the class Lorena will cover a variety of pocket, button, collar and hood options. Also, how different wadding, quilting and lining affects the look and feel of your final quilted coat. By the end of this workshop students should have a constructed a quilt coat, some binding may need to be done at home.
