Cool down with us as we have a Christmas Party in July! At the party, show what you’ve made this year for Christmas, be it a gift or a Christmas themed item. A door prize ticket is provided for each item “completed.” What qualifies as “completed?” The following should give you an idea for the size and level of completeness eligible for a ticket:
*Quilt square, part of a runner, etc.: 12” x 12” fully pieced, appliqued, or embellished: batted, quilted, bound not required;
The above examples should give you an idea for the size and level of completeness suggested for similar projects.
Do you want to attend the party but have not completed anything and need inspiration? Bring a homemade winter holiday themed or winter seasonal dessert or appetizer, along with 20 printed recipes to pass out.
No fee or preregistration. This is a PARTY! But DO bring one of the items, a project or appetizer/dessert, as discussed above.

Quilt Your Quilt Without Free Motion
You asked for it! How do you quilt your quilt without doing free motion quilting?
This quilting class covers how to prepare your quilt top, including layering and basting with hints for those large quilt tops. We will discuss how to set up your quilting area. We will discuss grid quilting options, other quilting options to consider, and you will learn how to quilt cables for your borders using a fool proof method that requires NO marking. I have quilted a 90" square quilt using these methods on my regular/domestic home sewing machine. We will discuss when to tackle quilting on your regular sewing machine and when to consider taking your top to be professionally longarm quilted.
Sewing basics and machine knowledge are pre-requisites for this class.
Class Fee: $25.00
