Intro to Art Quilting at Ghost Ranch


Spaces are still available.  Please register for the class through Ghost Ranch.


Come join Stitchology owner, Melisa Hart, at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu NM and learn how to make Melisa's appliqued bird quilts.


The class is offered through Ghost Ranch so you will need to register for it here:


Join us to learn how to build a beautiful bird quilt from a New Mexico grown quilt store owner, quilt designer, and sewing teacher.


In this beginner friendly class, we will build from the basics and will give demos and guidance on selecting fabrics, on raw-edge fused appliqué, and how to finish the quilt with binding. We will discuss different quilting techniques including how to use a walking foot, free-motion quilting, and if you like hand quilting! While these quilts may look intricate and difficult, with Melisa’s techniques they are quite simple to make and if you can use scissors and an iron you will be pleased with your results. You can choose from 5 different bird designs, including the New Mexico State Bird the Roadrunner, and you will be taking home a roughly 28″ x35″ remembrance of your visit to Ghost Ranch. Bernina sewing machines will be available for use or you can bring your own. A supply list will be available and a small fee will be charged to cover the cost of pattern, fabric, batting, needles, and thread. While all the fabrics will be included in the cost of the class, this is a great scrap buster, so feel free to bring more fabric as you may find it’s fun to have more variety. To make shopping even easier, before class starts your instructor Melisa Hart will create an online shopping guide of all the supplies you will need, and a few extras you will find handy, at All orders placed before class will be hand-delivered the first day of class.
