Classes

You will find all of our current classes and club meetings listed under Events. This page is a listing of recurring classes that you might want to request.

If you are interested in a class, please let us know and sign-up early! Classes must have a minimum number of students for us to have them go. By waiting too long, your class may be filled or you may be the one person needed to meet the minimum enrollment. We try hard not to cancel our classes and we are always open to your requests. If there is a class that you would like us to offer, please tell us!

Free Motion Quilting
 
Yes, this class is all about free-motion quilting, but focused on graphic elements (botanicals, geometrics, borders and lettering) rather than background stitching (stippling, etc.). Since the key to becoming good at free-motion work is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, we’ll be doing a lot of that while stitching images and text onto our fabric.
 
Date: Call to request the next class.
Time: 10:30am - 1:30pm
Cost: $25

Improvisational Applique
 
Create whimsical compositions of objects, shapes or creatures by using a simple stitch and a colorful stash of scraps. My favorite subject matter is BIRDS, but anything goes. We WON'T use patterns...just needle, thread, fabric pieces, scissors and small pieces of batting
