Quilter's FOMO? Yes, indeed, I've got it bad. That anxious feeling you get when you feel other people might be having a good time without you... or in the case of quilters the "Fear Of Missing Out" on all the sewing fun. New fabric? Gotta get it before it's gone! New technique? Gotta get in on the craze! Classes, BOMs, Retreats? Gotta get in on the PaR-tAy! The opportunity to meet and learn from one of my quilt heros? SIGN ME UP! So, what's on my quilting FOMO radar at the moment? Well, two things actually. Thank goodness both opportunities have a few openings left!
...but just a few!
It's your last chance to get in on one of 3 awesome opportunities to meet and learn from Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful! Have you tried the Quick Curve Ruler? This popular ruler was the brain-child of Jenny when she wanted to find an easier way to consistently cut curves that would be easy to sew. The first Quick Curve Ruler and pattern Urban Escape were sold in 2011. Since then, thousands of Quick Curve Rulers and QCR patterns have been sold worldwide to quilters who have fallen in love with curved piecing using the easy techniques of the Quick Curve Ruler. Jenny is one of those inspiring creative minds that is moving the quilting world forward in brilliant ways. She encourages quilters to think outside traditional quilting ‘rules’ and enjoy this beautiful process.
Your first opportunity to hang out with Jenny is at the Winter Jewels Table Runner Class
Learn the Quick Curve Ruler technique with a fast and fun table runner project that would look great in nearly any fabric combination! Join Jenny Pedigo to complete two of the blocks for this unique 17" x 48" Quick Curve Mini project. $100 class fee provides you with 3-4 hours of professional instruction and sewing time with Jenny in our Schoolhouse Friday, August 5 at 10:00 am. It will also include a ticket to the sold out Trunk Show on Friday, August 5 at 6:30 pm! You'll find the pattern in the Mini Wonderful Curves book by Sew Kind of Wonderful available online or in store as well as the Mini Quick Curve Ruler.
The second exciting class will be for the popular Posh Penelope
quilt. This stunning quilt combines a love for curves with petite sashing and cornerstones! It's a perfect mix of modern and traditional elements that create a timeless 69" x 80" quilt. Easy curved sewing technique is taught - no pinning, no finding center. Just cut, sew, and square-up using the original Quick Curve Ruler

The moment I saw The Traverse Quilt, I knew it was one I could not miss out on. It's a take on traditional row by row quilts, but with a decidedly modern look and a brilliant display of colors. What better way to ensure I finish this one than by joining a block-of-the-month? Chris and I (Jen) will be teaming up to teach each row in a twelve moth program here at the School House! Our Block of the Month class will meet every 4th Wednesday, starting September 2022 and ending August 2023. At each BOM class, we will do a show'n'tell and have a one-hour demo.
Your $30 Registration Fee will hold your spot and pay for the pattern, which you will receive at the beginning of the program. Then, each month during the first week of the month, you will be charged $28.95 (plus tax) to pay for each month's kit. Shipping is available. The first billing cycle will be the first week of September, and class will be the fourth Wednesday. There will be no charge for August 2023, but we will still hold class that month for a finishing demonstration and show'n'tell.
This eye catching palette from pattern designer, Tara Faugnhan, lives between harmony and discord, but always with a sweet, pleasing feel. Each row demonstrates a wide range of techniques that will build the skills of novice quilters and be a fun play day for the experts. Techniques include strip piecing, curves, and a new way to paper piece! The Traverse Quilt is a color study using 60 different Artisan Cottons by Windham Fabrics. This unique quilt finishes at about 72" x 85" and uses a variety of techniques each month. Hurry! Only a few seats left!
