Jelly Roll Placemat Class with Tara Sinclair with Uh Oh Creations

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm


 You’ve seen all the photos and pattern on Pinterest, so lets learn to make our own jelly roll placemat! Join Tara Sinclair of UhOh Creations as she teaches you how to make a placemat, using techniques you will be able to apply to making a Jelly Roll Rug. We will be using strips of fabric and batting to create a long strand that will be coiled together to form a round or oval shape when completed. We will work with top stitching the long strip then zig zagging our strips together, keeping it flat. Tara will share her tips and tricks to adjust our work as we go to create a successful project, the first time!! Quilting experience not necessary, all you need is basic knowledge of running your sewing machine.
