Swan Amity Events

Moore’s is excited to partner with Swan Amity Studios to bring you the two fun and creative quilting classes! One is the Water Color for Quilters class, where you’ll get to paint your quit for added depth and color. The other is the Popped Colors Quilt class, where students will make a table topper based on the Swan Amity Popped Colors Quilt pattern.

Dates and Time

Water Color for Quilters Event

Date: April 5th, 2024

Time: 10am – 3:00pm

Location: Moore’s of Brea

Price: $99.99

Lunch included

Supply List:

  • Paint brushes: an inexpensive small starter pack containing at least two small flat brushes (#2, and #4) and at least two sizes of flat brushes (#6 and/or #8 and #16 or greater).
  • A small, well washed jelly jar or recycled jar with a good tight fitting lid. Keep in mind if your jar smells like pickles, your project is likely to smell like pickles as well.
  • 1” masking tape. Please do not bring blue painter’s tape. This will not hold your fabric down as tightly.
  • Marking tool (pencil or washout pen is best)
  • 1/3 yard Prepared for dye batik or Prepared for dye Kona cotton (tip: batik will be smoother to work with and the Kona will provide you with more texture in the fabric)

Prior to Class:: Cut one 10” x 10” square from your Prepared for Dye (PFD) fabric.
