Fabric must be recognizable as this fabric in the piece. This does not have to be a quilt, or even a sewn piece. Embroidery, sewing, bags, multimedia, paint, paper arts, collage or any physical artistic variation is welcome!
Bird fabric is available on a first come first serve basis.
Finished pieces will be submitted to the shop to be judged- there will be both a community favorite award by popular vote and an award from a guest judge. Prizes to be determined- but trust me they will be worth your while!
Submissions are due at the shop by October 18, 2019.
Get creative and try to think out of the box- I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
This class requires basic quilting knowledge. Supplies include the Norm and Nanette pattern, traditional quilt/sewing tools, sewing machine, and fabrics detailed on the pattern to make the small quilt version. This class is only to make the quilt top- students will finish (quilt/bind) the project on their own time.
We are excited to announce our Embroidery Club, beginning Tuesday, August 27 from 6pm- 8pm.
Clubs will be different from regular classes- each month we will have space for 12 participants in the club, and each month will cover different stitches and projects related to embroidery. Students sign up for meetings one at a time, rather than being expected to attend all of them.
We are excited to announce our English Paper Piecing (EPP) Club, beginning Thursday, August 15 from 6pm- 8pm.

We are excited to announce a new class on August 17 from 10am-2pm, the Twirl N Spin Table Runner.
This table runner project is so easy to personalize. You can make your stars scrappy or solids, and use any variety of colors or themed fabrics to make it your own! Our sample above is done is playful Christmas fabrics by Alison Glass.
This is a class for beginning or intermediate quilters. This class will only produce the quilt top, and students will finish (quilt and bind) the project on their own. Class price is $40 and spaces are limited.
You can learn how quick and easy projects are when using a specialty ruler and accompanying pattern- in this case the Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler.
Because specialty rulers are an investment- the 60 Degree Diamond Ruler costs $29.99- we are going to offer a number of affordable patterns and classes to go along with it. We want you to make the most of your tools and feel confident using them!
