Date: Wednesday April 17, April 24, May 1, and May 15
Time: 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm or 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Teacher: Sue S.
Have you always wanted to learn how to quilt? We are excited to be offering another beginner class starting the end of January. Included in the price is the book with the pattern and fabric to make the top of the quilt. You will still need to purchase backing and batting. At the first class you will pick out the fabrics for your quilt and learn all about rotary cutting. There will be a week off between classes 3 and 4 so that you can finish off the quilt before you learn how to apply the binding. You will need a sewing machine in working order because there will be homework. If you can't bring your machine to the shop we have some for you to use but it is always better to do all the piecing on one machine if possible. We will supply mats, rulers and rotary cutters for you to use at the shop. If you decide to buy these supplies you will receive a 15% discount. Call the shop to reserve your seat. 418-893-5703
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
We are inviting customers to rent tables and sell old quilting supplies, fabrics and kits that they no longer are in love with. Join us on March 31. Have fun buying "new to you" quilt shop quality supplies from 8 vendors. If you are interested in renting a table call the shop. It is $15.00 per table.
Please bring cash as all the vendors will be collecting their own money.
We will also have a couple of Quilt Foundry tables with low, low prices on sale fabrics.
