Upcoming Classes and Events


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.

Beginners and Beyond Class

This class is designed to teach an advanced beginner basic quilting blocks and techniques. It will build on the lessons taught and patterns used in the Basic Beginners class. Approximately 4 weeks will be devoted to each block. The first technique will be strip piecing which will be practiced in the Nine Patch block and a quick pinwheel design. Half Square Triangles, Log Cabin, and Flying Geese are among the quilt blocks taught along with appropriate projects that use the block being taught. Class members can always request that a project or quilt block be taught.
