The QuiltBug is looking for about 5 good, basic, used sewing machines.  We'll donate them to a local Senior community that Ann will be visiting weekly in the fall.  If you have one that works and is just in need of a tune up, we'd love to have it.  This will allow some Seniors to get back to sewing, but more importanly bring them together to socialize with friends over a common hobby.  Thanks for your help:)

Upcoming Classes and Events

Thursday Morning's with Tamara

Can you sew? Are you interested in learning how to quilt? Or, do you quilt already and your looking to take your skills to the next level? This time with Tamara will be perfect for you. She has many, many years of quilting experience and she cantake you to the next level.

Beginners Combo

This class is a combination of Basic Beginners and Beginners and Beyond. As beginners finish the classes offered them they can continue to the more advanced stages of quilting techniques and various quilt blocks. Since each student is encouraged to progress at their own pace, everyone will be at different points of learning. Everyone shares their own piecing experiences, conundrums and in turn discovers that we all make mistakes and we work our way through them. Students can join at any time as this is an on going class.
