What to give, what to give... It's the question on everyone's mind right now. What meaningful, memorable gift can I wrap up and tie with a bow to show my love on Christmas? There's a never-ending supply of "things" to choose from but so often the material items just don't feel like the right gift -- unless of course you're talking about a quilter -- then the phrase "material gift" takes on a whole new meaning. My fellow fabric lovers know exactly what I mean but even so, let's consider another option for the ideal quilter's gift. As my children have grown older we have moved from giving toys and frivolous joys to wrapping up the gift of experience. It can be done on almost any budget yet holds limitless value to the receiver. A gift of experience can come in many forms, but for the quilter, I'm suggesting a class. Send your dear maker friend for an evening of learning at the Corn Wagon Schoolhouse! We have a variety of interesting classes, clubs and events that allow you to give the gift of time and inspiration. While you're at it, sign yourself up as well and create a memory you'll both hold dear. Class members will also enjoy 15% off class supplies and other regular price items purchased while attending class! Let's take a look at some of our upcoming opportunities. Remember to check our website often for new additions to our schedule and to view supply lists and more!

I made the quilt shown above as a graduation gift for my High School Senior while taking Cheryl's class! I was amazed at how easily I was able to work in all of my son's school shirts beginning with Kindergarten up through his senior year. Since taking Cheryl's class I have made two more t-shirt quilts and wouldn't want to make them any other way! Registration for our Saturday Sampler 2022

Beginning the 2nd Saturday of each month, kits are available for pickup or mailing subscription (shipping charges apply) with fabrics and a pattern for piecing another portion of the mystery quilt. When club members personally bring the previous month's assignment into the quilt shop during the one-week allowance, they will receive the next kit free! Otherwise each kit is $6.50 (includes tax). At the end of the program, we'll reveal the finished quilt along with your finishing kit and instructions for putting all the pieces together. It's so much fun for quilters of all skill levels!
