FAQ

Can I teach myself how to quilt?

arrow

Technically, yes, but there are a lot of resources available to learn to quilt, and it can become very overwhelming very quickly. Taking a class with a qualified TakeLessons instructor will speed up the learning process and save you time from trying to navigate the difficult work of self-instruction.

Our quilting instructors have been quilting for many years. They will teach you the right technique to quilt correctly so that your skills will continue to grow. They can also tell you the tips and tricks they have learned along the way.

Are there basic skills needed for quilting?

arrow

Yes. There are a handful of skills necessary to make a quality quilt, including oiling, threading, adjusting tension, and stitch length. Your TakeLessons quilting teacher has the knowledge to teach you everything you need to know to make the perfect quilt. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced quilter, there is always something new to learn!

How long does it take to make a quilt?

arrow

Regardless of skill level, quilting is not a fast process. You will need time to cut your fabric into squares, sew your squares together, bind your quilt, add your sleeve, and label it. The most time-consuming part is the actual quilting of the squares. Though not a quick process, the outcome is a beautiful one to be enjoyed for years to come!
