Our classes support the fabric and supplies we carry and we purchase fabric and merchandise to support our classes. Our policy is to have students purchase their fabric and supplies at our studio.
Group classes are non-refundable, however if you cancel prior to 5 days in advance and we can fill your spot, we will issue you credit towards a subsequent class. Private lessons can be rescheduled once due to sickness or emergency, but repeated cancellations are non-refundable.
Currently we require masks to be worn during our classes because we are a small studio and work in close proximity. As always, if you are feeling sick or please stay home.
Beginning Sampler Quilt
This is by far our most popular beginning quilting class. You’ll begin with a free shopping session with introduction to color and design theory in selecting your fabrics. Then you’ll learn how to construct a sampler quilt top by accurately cutting fabric and sewing blocks that are the “building blocks” for most quilt patterns. Included is how to sew a sashing, border, and bind your quilt. Most students use our longarm services to have their top quilted so it’s one and done!
The nine-patch block has historically been a favorite for beginners. In this class, you’ll learn how to choose prints, accurately cut and construct nine-patch blocks, and then put them all together to make a quilt top. We can teach you how to quilt it yourself, or feel free to use our longarm quilting services.
Quilting Basics and Beyond
This is a great follow up to our Beginning Quilting classes or a perfect choice if you have some quilting skills and are ready to take on a new project. Choose from a variety of patterns using our beautiful selection of fabrics. We have plenty of finished quilt samples from which to choose, and will help you pick a project that’s just right for your ability level.
Make a T-shirt Quilt
If you enjoy reusing and repurposing, this is a great project where you’ll learn how to turn those t-shirts into a quilt top. And be sure to use our long arm services to do the quilting! T-shirt quilts are a great way to wrap yourself up in memories of home for those going away to college or remember a lost loved one.
