Classes are Back! See what's new on our classes and events schedule.
The time has come to bring classes back! It's been too quiet here at our School House these past few weeks. It's just not the same without the excited energy of quilter's ready to learn something new! Slowly but surely we are adding classes and events back to our schedule. I'm excited to share some new ones with you today but first let's talk about the precautions we are taking to make your time at our School House as safe as possible. For the time being:
Individual class sizes will be reduced to a max of 8 members to allow proper social distancing (6 feet between individuals and stations) while in the classroom.
Events, lectures, clubs and demos held in the classroom will be limited to 20 individuals to allow proper spacing of chairs.
Class attendees must wear a face mask while in the classroom unless you are unable due to a medical condition.
Instructors may or may not be wearing a mask for ease of communication as long as they are able to social distance. During hands-on instruction, we recommend they wear a mask.
All high touch surfaces will be sanitized between classes.
Always consider your personal health and wellness before attending any event or class.
If you were previously registered for a class that was postponed, you will be contacted by your instructor with new dates and further class instructions. If you would prefer, we are temporarily offering a refund in the form of a gift card for individual class fees. This does not include block of the month clubs.
We are SEW happy to open registration for our summer youth class, CAMP SEW FUN July 20, 22 & 23, 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. in our Sunrise retreat room. Two instructors will be leading CAMP SEW FUN to make sure everyone gets plenty of help and instruction. In class, kids will make the Equilateral quilt following the free pattern download by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics. This darling pattern mixes color and shape in a modern way with it's triangle design. Your kids will agree, this quilt is TOTALLY on trend! Plus, it's the perfect pattern for your budding sewist to learn basic quilt-making techniques. For a complete and detailed supply list please download the free pattern by clicking here.
Your child will enjoy a fun and relaxing atmosphere with friends while learning useful skills. For $75, the class has three sessions at 4 hours each to complete the 64" x 76" quilt top. Instruction on cutting and sewing the binding is also included. Sample quilt and kits will be made using a combination of the Flour Garden line of fabrics by Moda and Homestead Life by Windham (see below). Kits are available to purchase separately for $79.99 on a first-come, first-serve basis. Or your can come into the Corn Wagon and we can help customize your quilt with your own fabric choices! Class space is limited so register right away using this link. If we have enough interest, we will add a second class so if you find yourself added to a wait list, we will be in touch.

Of course we can't end a newsletter without sharing a beautiful new quilt! And golly is this a good one! Would you look at all those half-square triangles... and the way they fade from soft black to creamy white... just WOW! Karen Averett used Primitive Gatherings Triangle Papers to make her HSTs perfect for this Fade Away quilt. You'll find the pattern in Farmhouse Gatherings by Lisa Bongean. We have books and kits ($223.99) here at the quilt shop featuring these classic Urban Farmhouse Gatherings fabrics to piece this 90" x 100" quilt top. Ramona Sorensen created a lovely edge-to-edge quilting design that carries your eye smoothly across the quilt as the colors fade away.
