Classes & Events

Whether you just want to learn a new technique, or just spend some time with fellow quilters, we offer a plethora of classes every weekend. We strive to keep the cost of our classes low so that you easily afford to take more than one per month.


If you find a class you want to take, but cannot attend on the date it is being offered, get together a group of at least three people and Susie can teach it on another day.


Three is the minimum for requesting a special class.


We also offer a “block of the month” or a “sampler block” every weekend. If you are not able to attend a class series, call us to find out how you can participate via snail mail. Our current samplers include:

  • First Saturday Sampler – Front Porch Flags – Each month we complete a large block suitable for using as a front porch flag. Purchase of the pattern is required, and each block is $20, and includes all fabrics for doing the flag front.
  • NEW Second Saturday Sampler Duck Hunt - We started a brand new Duck Hunt called STAR GAZING. These fun blocks will be modeled after heavenly bodies and done in TWO color ways. Pay $20 to play, and if you bring your completed block to the next Duck Hunt, your next block is free! Call now to make sure a kit is available for you.
  • Third Saturday sampler featuring Farm Girl Vintage – Lori Holt’s famous book is our foundation for this fun sampler. Each month you will receive fabric for a 12” AND a 6” block. Purchas of the book is required, and we will be completing 16 of the 49 blocks in this sampler.
  • Fourth Saturday Sampler – Country Friends – This fun sampler takes a look at country critters. Each block comes in a complete kit that includes fabric for the block, backing, batting and binding. Robin is putting together all of the samples, and she includes a sample of what you can do with your leftovers. These blocks are suitable for hanging on a quilt block holder if you include a sleeve on the back side.
  • Crazy Quilt Group – We meet on the first Friday of the month from 1-4 and work on projects while learning new stitches and techniques. There is no cost to participate in this group. Bring your supplies with you, or purchase fun items from our Crazy Quilt room.
  • Benni Harper Book of the Month Club/ Sampler – Third Friday – This fun club is part book study, based on the murder mysteries of Earlene Fowler, and part sewing circle. Each month we read a different book by the author, then complete a quilt block based on the name of that month’s book. Class time is from 1-4.
