Did Someone say Classes???

As the weather heats up, so does the temperature (of activity) in the 
Arizona Quilts classroom schedule.
We have been providing an array of different classes and challenging projects this winter with a few of the offerings pictured above. 

First is Carrie's Free Motion 101 & 102. Carrie's classes have been
so popular she will be returning to Arizona Quilts in
November to teach some more. Just keep an eye out in our
newsletter to see the next scheduled dates.

The next pictures are of Nanette's very popular Running With Scissors
bag class, which is one of several bag-building opportunities
that she offers.

In the last of the pictures, we have students from Susan's ongoing
ABCs of Quilting class. This is where new quilters come to learn the
how-tos of a good foundation of quilting and other quilters
come to brush-up on their skills.

We are super excited that In April, Tami will be offering 2 opportunities to jump into the Judy Niemeyer Paper Piecing techniques of quilting.
If you have ever looked, with awe, at those perfectly pointed pieces of a paper pieced quilt and thought I wish I could do that, then this is your opportunity!

Besides her regular bag offerings, Nanette will be hosting a monthly 
*Under Construction* class to lend a helping hand for any of those 
"I'm stuck and I can't get finished" projects you may have. 

There is also a new pillow-making and table runner opportunity,
being taught by Lori.
Our last mention is Tami's One Block Wonder class using only
one fabric to make an amazing quilt!

We are very excited to reveal our new opportunities for learning in 2021!
Please scroll to the bottom of this newsletter to see a complete
description of all of the classes being offered in the next several months! 

Happy Always Learning Quilting!

Upcoming Classes

My Favorite Bag w/ Nanette begins on
Fri., Mar. 26th for 3 sessions. (Session 2-Mar. 29, Session 3-Apr.5). Create this cute bag in either the large or smaller size using fun fabrics and grommets. The small one is a perfect purse size and the larger one is tote bag size to hold all of your supplies for class or it makes a cute diaper bag. There is also a clutch pattern included if you want to make one to match your bag.
Dinner 4 Two w/ Nanette begins on
Fri., Apr. 9th for 3 sessions (Sessions 2 & 3 will be Apr., 12th & 19th). This bag, called the Professional Tote, can have many uses – a picnic bag with room for beverages in the side pockets and pockets inside for utensils, plates and food items. Placemats can be made to match. It can also be a diaper bag and the many pockets helps keep all the baby items organized or use it as a professional bag for taking to classes or work. A small laptop might even fit in the center pocket. Choosing fabrics to match your purpose will make this a fun and versatile bag.

Finish It Workshop w/ Tami will be held on Sat., April 10th from 10:30am-3:30pm. Do you have any unfinished Judy Niemeyer projects? Come sew with us and get it done!

Under Construction w/ Nanette is a new monthly class that will be held the 3rd Thursday of each month. Do you have that bag, quilt, wall hanging or project that is under construction and you have just come to a stop and need help to finish? Then this is the class for you! Bring it in and Nanette will help you get that "under construction" project completed! This month it will be held on
April 15th.

Summer Solstice w/ Tami will begin on Sat., April 17th for 3 sessions (Session 2-May8th, Session 3-June 5th). Have you ever looked at a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing quilt and said ... I wish I could make that? If so then this is a great place to begin. The easy, simple layout makes this a perfect project to start your paper piecing journey The finished quilt measures approximately 60"x60". It is a fun pattern to piece!

ABC's of Quilting w/ Susan will begin on Wed., Apr. 21st for 5 sessions from 9am-12pm. This is a great class for beginners or those who might want to freshen up their skills. Even if you have taken her class & would like to re-visit this, stop in and Susan can customize something just for you!
Pillow Talk w/ Lori will be held on
Fri., Apr. 23rd from 9:30am-3:30pm. Here is your chance to learn how to make a quality throw pillow. In this class, you will build on your existing techniques and grow in your skills! You will learn how to install a lapped closure zipper and you will learn piping hints that can be applied in other creative projects! Once you experience the fun of making a throw pillow out of fabrics you love, you may be asked by friends & family (especially those grandchildren) to make a custom throw pillow for each of them. Trust me...it is a lot of fun!!
Pick & Play - Learn to Applique w/ Nanette will be held on Mon., Apr. 26th from 9:30am-3:30pm. Learn to machine applique and imagine all the possibilities when you choose from any of the Patch Abilities patterns available. It's a great time to try out some pattern stitches on your machine. You will leave this class with a completed wall hanging.

One Block Wonder w/ Tami begins on Sat., May 1st from 9:30am-3:30pm for 2 sessions (Session 2 will be May 22nd). Use one fabric to make a unique one-of-a-kind kaleidoscope block quilt. This is a two day class with time inbetween to complete your blocks. Come have fun and see the amazing results!
Tic-Tac-Mo w/ Lori will be held on Tues., May 4th from 9:30am-3:30pm.
This is a golden opportunity to make a simple table runner that will add an
extra flare under a center piece or flower arrangement. It is a fun way to display and enjoy the fabric you love!
As always, we thank you for your friendship & your business.

Stay safe and happy quilting!
