Make a Tamarack Jacket (Quilted) with Leigh Ann and Kathleen
In this 2-part class, you will create a quilted jacket using the Tamarack pattern. This jacket does NOT require you to start with a finished quilt. The pattern allows you to choose fabrics that will be quilted during the process. During this class, you will gain all the skills needed to create this project. However, you may need to finish it at home.
This class assumes the student has basic garment sewing skills and basic garment pattern reading skills. This class is best for a confident beginner/intermediate sewist. This project will require some sewing at home.
Leigh Ann and Kathleen have been creative partners for years and have extensive experience in creating gorgeous projects. They are both delighted to lead this class!
