New Class Offerings

We have many new samples on display for all the new classes starting this fall. Most of the classes still have openings, so look through the website listing and see what will fit into your schedule. Here are just a few to entice you:

Kwik Scrappy String Quilt
This is a great pattern for stash-busting. Emily will get you started with the freezer paper technique in the first class, and then help you put some blocks together at the second class. The pattern is designed by Two Kwik Quilters.

This cute guy is one of the characters on the Winter Season quilt. The fabric in this quilt is from Andover and the pattern was designed for it. You might have already seen the summer and fall seasonal designs. This one was irresistible, and since it is not a Christmas theme, you can enjoy it all winter long. Pam will help you with the machine applique to attach the circle designs, and if you have the Bernina circle tool you will learn how to use it. Buttonhole, zigzag or decorative stitches will work for the applique. The class starts October 6, hopefully long before we get any snow for real snowmen!

This is one block in the Mariner's Compass quilt. Janell Dahms is our guest instructor again, and she will walk you through all you need to know to make these beautiful blocks. Starting November 2, this technique class will teach you the paper-piecing method. We are very happy to have Janell return to teach this class that has been in demand by many.
