Fall & Winter Classes! There's always somethig new to learn in quilting!





Learning never ends, never gets old and quilting is no exception. The creative process invites experimentation, new techniques, trial and error... and with all this practice comes new knowledge and experience. Our friend Heather Dunn says that's her favorite part of quilting! We are delighted to welcome Heather as an instructor here at the Corn Wagon! Not only does she wear the most cheerful smile, she is a talented quilt-maker who loves to help others learn. With a career start in education teaching 5th grade, her experience shows in the classroom. I had the privilege of taking a class from her on the EasyPiecing Grid and I can tell you she is just the kind and patient teacher you would hope for. I so enjoyed getting to know her better.


Heather has lived in several different states across the country but it was fun to discover she spent some time growing up right here in Springville, attending Art City Elementary as a child. She began her quilting experience before her children were born over 20 years ago, then took a break during those busy years of raising children. She now has five with only one still at home. With this next phase of life opening up, she says she just needed something new to invest her energy in. While visiting with her friend and neighbor, Carmen Geddes, she had the idea, "What about teaching quilting classes?" Carmen said, "That's just what you need in your your life!" Heather has spent time becoming an expert on the EasyPiecing grid developed by Carmen! You may recognize her name from her company, TenSisters Handicraft? Carmen has built upon her EasyPiecing technique, now offering several grid options, pattern books and online tutorials through her website. You've likely seen some of Heather's quilts featured in Carmen's productions as she makes samples using her designs. Now Heather enjoys sharing her love of the grid with quilters everywhere! She says Teaching + Quilting = Happiness for her. We feel she's a perfect fit here at the Corn Wagon! We are thrilled to offer six different classes taught by Heather this semester, each featuring a different quilt project using the EasyPiecing Grid. You'll LOVE this technique and enjoy finding a new quilting friend in Heather Dunn!


Let's take a look at the classes Heather will be teaching this fall. Remember you can always see a full list of our upcoming classes on our website, complete with supply lists and the chance to register online! We have samples of each of these projects made by Heather on display at the shop so be sure to come and see them in person.


Heather's first class on our new schedule is Piccadilly Squares (above). This is the class I took from her and it was so much fun (and filled up so fast) that we're offering it again! During this two-day class you will make this traditional on-point quilt in a non-traditional way! Learn to use Easy Piecing Border Panels by Ten Sisters Handicraft for a fun, fast, and accurate project.  It is very simple to make this design larger! Heather is ready to show you how. You'll be amazed at how beautifully these 2" finished squares come together using the grid method. Your seams will nest perfectly and your quilt will lay so flat and smooth.
P.S. This is a great SCRAPBUSTER!

You will have so much fun making this one, that you will want to make many more! The Mini Poppins bag takes minimal fabric, which makes this project a great stash buster! The secret to this bag are the structural stays (that come with the pattern), which help keep the bag's shape. The Mini Poppins Bag has a double zipper opening for easy access. Two different class dates to choose from; Thurs, Aug 27th, 12-5pm or Thurs, Oct 15th, 11am-4pm. Register online or in-store for $45!
