Free-motion Quilting
(Moving Beyond Stippling)
Teacher: Jane McMurray
Sat. April 28, May 5, May 12
Time: 1pm-3pm

Do you often wonder how to finish your quilt? Are you afraid to move past stippling and yet you are tired of stitch-in-the-ditch? Well, during this class, you will gain confidence as you follow the patterns in the book "180 Doodle Quilting Designs" to use continuous-line quilting designs that are adaptable to blocks, triangles and borders. We will begin practicing the designs by tracing with pencil and paper. Then once the muscle memory is learned, we will take our skills to our sewing machines.
Beginning Quilting 103
Teacher: Diane Juskelis
Dates: Thursdays. May 3, 17, and 24

Teacher: Diane Juskelis
Dates: Saturday. May 5

Have you wanted to use your embroidery machine for a new in-the-hoop technique? Do you want to use your embroidery machine to quilt some of your projects?  If you answered yes to either of these, then this class is for you!
Pieceful Pines
Pam Buda's beautiful new block of the month program is perfect for quilters who prefer a reproduction approach to holiday quilts over traditional Christmas themed prints. Pam's rich reds, greens, and neutrals combine to create a center medallion wreath surrounded by log cabin and pine tree blocks. Approx. 80"X80" this is an 8 month program. $28.95 /month Sign up today!
Graphic Gems - Garnet & Sapphire-
Sarah J. Maxwell designed this quilt. Her warmer jewel tones are complimented by her choice of batik designs - cattails, a garden trellis, ocean waves and other motifs echo her inspiration for Graphic Gems. Approx. 76"X87" this is a 9 month program using a different layer cake each month to piece the blocks. $32.95/month Taking sign ups now!
From Moda - Pepper & Flax - It seems all good things come in pairs...milk & cookies...needle & thread...smiles & laughter. To that list let's add Pepper & Flax. This collection brings together two favorite colors yellow and grey with just a touch of green. Beautiful florals are mixed with a little bit of vintage to provide the perfect ingredients for a beautiful project. We know Fabric + Love = Beautiful! We will have a kit available soon.
Scrappy & Happy Quilts - Create lively, colorful quilts, and say good bye to agonizing over color choices. With this collection of scrappy, two color and three color quilt patterns, choosing colors is a snap! Plus you can use every scrap! Start with yardage, scraps, or precuts: the choice is yours. And if you have a lot of one color in your fabric collection, these bright and beautiful quilts will make that color sparkle. The more of one color the better.
Easy Quilts from Precut Fabrics - Use precut fabrics to create delightfully scrappy quilts featuring classic quilt blocks, and get to the finish line fast using time saving precut fabrics. Just one or two precut bundles plus a background fabric are all you need to make these beauties. Why not make your own precuts and use up some of that stash??
Rocky Mountain Runner - Cool mountain streams are framed by mountain ranges in this scrappy table runner. Finished size is 15"X 46". One jelly roll would be enough to make two runners!

Roxanne Glue Baste-It Dip & Dab - A nifty notion perfect for travel, small, portable, and has a little wand for application.
