The "Art" in Beginning Quilting & Other New Classes

Hi! Hope everyone has had a good start to the week. We've arrived at Wednesday and it is only full throttle through the weekend yet! Today is the 2nd session of The "Art" in Beginning Quilting. They are using Jane Davila's Art Quilt Workbook to either learn how to quilt or further their quilting with jumping into the art quilt style. There are 8 students in the class and they are down there with their sewing machines a whirring!! The walls are even covered with great examples of the topics their covering today.

We've added many new classes on and here are a few of them:

"In-jean-ious Altered Clothing Workshop" with Rebecca Reasons-Edwards. You can see more of her work at She has a very creative outlook on altered clothing and is just the right person to help you get over your fear of cutting into a piece. This class is coming up soon, Feb. 9th or 20th, so make sure you check it out if you are interested. Feel free to communicate with Rebecca about the class or a possible item to alter.

Basic Dyeing on Silk with Hellenne Vermillion
This class was just added this week. Hellenne does absolutely stunning work on silk and is now going to teach you how to accomplish the basics. You can see more of Hellenne's work at

This class is not on the schedule quite yet but should be before the week is over.
Beaded Spirit Doll with Karla Stuber.
Karla has been beading and dollmaking for years. She is also teaching a Basic Beading on Fabric class on Feb. 12th. There are still a few spots remaining in that class if you are interested.

Keep an eye out on the website as we are getting March, April and May's class schedules set in the next week or so. There just might be a class you can''t pass up!!
