We are pleased to announce a new opportunity for quilters who use rulers or wish to learn how to quilt with rulers. Starting in July, Marilyn Manwaring will be offering a class each month that uses rulers. If you wish to forego the project, feel free to bring UFO's or projects that you would like to receive individualized instruction upon. This is an ongoing monthly class that will teach you how to finish and quilt your own quilts using rulers. Any project you wish to bring and receive individualized instruction upon is welcome. Marilyn will also have an ongoing quilt pattern available if you wish to work on that. The quilt featured until the end of the year will be the "Folded Corners" quilting hanging in our classroom. The atmosphere in class is laid back and convivial - lots of visiting and new friends to make. Come, have fun and learn to quilt your projects with rulers! Starting January 2020 we will begin the Hoffman "Big Dream Dahlia" panel class

One Saturday morning a month we will present a topic of interest to all sewists. It is information important to all of us as we pursue our hobby to help you get the best results possible. We will teach you about fabric and threads that we sell, needles, and stabilizers to help you make the best decision about the products you choose to use. Lynn will demonstrate the long arms and ruler work for those who want to know what all the fuss is about, also techniques like hooping designs and transferring them from discs or online into your machine for stitch out. We hope you will join us to listen and learn more about sewing and the tools that we use.
