A Pfaff Class

In the last year, I was working with some girls who own Pfaff sewing machines.   The whole idea was to learn more about the machine and feet.  We did this by making small projects - usually two or three hour projects.   We were a small group meeting in each others kitchens.   It was nice and intimate and projects get done quickly.  

But have had a number of people hear about it and ask if they can participate or start a new kitchen group.   This got me thinking about having a Pfaff workday in a larger venue say once a month.   I am hoping we can have up to 15 people participate.

I have a venue selected but I have to check out the costs, outlets, lighting etc.  I'm planning a "test" class for later May or early June.   I have a the project all picked out that would be perfect for our first "new venue" class.  

This nesting bowl project can be completed in a 4 hour class.  This is my sample.  Participants will get a good bit of utilizing their IDT to machine quilt (not free motion) these nesting fabric bowls.   Once they get through these bowls, they will have the confidence to machine quilt other larger projects such as placemats and table runners.  

Do you own a Pfaff? Are you local?  Maybe you would like to learn some new skills.     If so, let me know and I'll add you to my list.

I'm assuming you're in Canada. I'm in Denver, CO. I have two Pfaffs and a Pfaff serger. I would love to at least have access to tutorials, and hang with other Pfaff owners. Glad I found your blog.
