What's New?

Can you believe it's already February? We have a full schedule of classes and clubs.
The first Monday of the month is Stitchery Club. Bring any project you want to work on and Pamala will be available to help you with any stitches. If you don't have a project, she will help you pick one out. Your project can include any wool project you have wanted to start or finish.
The first Tuesday of the month is Civil War club. We will be making a civil war quilt. Bring your stash or buy a monthly kit. The choice is yours.
The second Friday of the month is Appliqué club. Erin is experienced in all types of appliqué from machine to needle turn. Bring a project or start a new one. She will help you with any of the different techniques.
Christmas Club is the third Friday of the month. You will make a different project each month that can be saved for gift giving at the end other year. In addition, you will also receive a kit to make a darling 6" block that can be put together at the end of the year to make a special quilt.

There is still time to sign up for the beginning machine quilting or beginning quilting class. Pamala teaches the beginning machine quilting class. Learn to quilt on your home sewing machine. Before Pamala used a long arm, she quilted her quilts on her home machine. This class begins 2/7 from 10am to 1pm. It runs for 6 weeks. 2/14 , 2/21, 3/7, 3/14, and 3/21
The beginning quilt class starts on 2/12 and also runs for 6 weeks. In this class you will make a sampler quilt, learning a variety of blocks and techniques that are popular in making most quilts.

Use your ruler will be the fourth Friday of each month. This month, learn to use the June Tailor twister ruler. This ruler makes the twister technique so much easier and faster. Make a tablerunner or quilt. The quilt makes a perfect baby gift.

Saturday, February 23rd Pamala will be teaching a paper piecing class. Here is the perfect opportunity to see if you like this technique. The book she is using has a variety of patriotic blocks to choose from.

Saturday, March 9th, Cathy will be teaching a cut apart hats class. This methods is very fun and very forgiving. You cut apart your fabrics, shuffle them and sew them back together.

We still have room in a few of our block of the month programs. One very popular BOM is the Primitive Gatherings Favorite Things. It combines wool and fabric. Here are the 1st three blocks. This BOM is only $8.99 per month.
