New classes will take place at the Sew It Begins Sewing Lounge in Nanaimo. This sweet room is located in the old Firehouse located between Victoria Road and Nicol Street. The address is #4-34 Nicol. Park on Victoria Rd and walk around. We have a dolly to use if you are bringing a sewing machine.

The Modern Traditional Series of classes uses classic patchwork blocks to teach how to “modern up” your quilts and how to put your own stamp on your work by making any size you like. You’ll learn drafting, accurate cutting and sewing techniques, lessons in colour, value and classic design.


This is a super-simple quilt block consisting of few pieces and straight lines. Colour choices and placement make it your own. You’ll learn accurate rotary cutting, how to set up your machine for an accurate ΒΌ” seam, accurate piecing and general patchwork skills. This is a great beginner class, but everyone will learn something, no matter what your skill level.

2019 – Saturday April 13, 11-5. $80.
