Here's what's happening at the QuiltBug:

We have openings in the Beginners class that takes place Wed. morning.  If you want to take your sewing to the next level. This weekly class will take you from beginner to beyond.  Give the shop a call, or sign up on line, and join the fun. You can't beat this price, just $15.00 a week. 

Lower your feed dogs and raise your creativity in this class taught by Tamara. This hands on class will provide the basics for machine quilting using a walking foot on your home sewing machine.
Cost: $ 25.00

Have you ever wanted to try Wool Applique? We have two classes coming up!  On February 26th and March 23rd.  I think this is a very relaxing form of quilting.  We have Paula, a wool applique teacher, that will lead you through a basic project while sharing tips and techniques.  This is going to be a fun class.  Cost: $35, it includes your starter kit. 

Join us March 2nd as we reveal the QuiltBug's, 10th anniversary Stonehenge block, come in and meet the reps from Northcott and learn about the 2 competitions you can take part in and potentially when a trip to England!  We'll raffle off a Stonehenge gift basket with a few of the beautiful fabric samples included.
