Learn it all – from selecting your fabrics to finishing the binding. Ronna has a lot of experience, and will show you the various techniques and tricks to make your quilting adventures successful, enjoyable and EASY!

This class is offered on the 3rd weekend of  April, July, October and January. You decide which format you want to take:

  1. Everything you need to know all in one day, sew all day 9AM-4PM. Make a table runner. Table runner pattern is included in the class price of $45. You purchase a fabric/batting kit for $12.
  2. The more relaxed version: 2 days, on Saturday and Sundays, just 4-5 hours a day. This class is based on the 3-yard quilts by Donna Robertson.  The first day you will cut out your pieces, stitch the blocks and complete the quilt top. The second day is sandwiching, machine quilting and binding. Class price is $65. You may choose to bring fabrics that you like, or are glad to help you choose from our huge selection of quality quilting cottons. You must purchase either a single quilt pattern ($3) or a book of 8 quilts ($16). Once you take this class you will be confident enough to make any of the 8 quilts in the book. Please note, you need to finish your quilt top before the second day. There should be amply time on day 1, but you might go home with a little homework.

Supplies: Bring your sewing machine (with it’s power cord, foot pedal, manual and all the bits and pieces), any hand tools that you enjoy using (ripper, scissors, markers, etc), neutral thread, a water bottle and snack. We have rotary cutters and mats for your use. Batting is required for the 2-day quilt.
