Quilting and Sewing


Each year, Cynthia designs a new block of the month for the shop. We've done many types of quilts over the years, but never a Christmas quilt. It's long overdue! We'll have 12 quick-lecture classes to make 16 blocks, and then get the fabrics to go home and sew. Please download the newsletter for more info.

It would be lovely to describe this runner, but unfortunately, that would take all of the mystery out of it.

If you sign up online, we'll give you the credit when you buy the fabric. Supplies: Please stop by for the supply list after Oct. 1. Wednesdays, Oct. 16, Oct. 30, Nov. 13 & Nov. 27, all from 5:30-6:00 p.m. To sign up, click here or call 814-238-4151 between 10-5:30, Monday through Saturday.

It's time to get inspired and to set yourself free! This class meets once a month, and its objective is to spark new ideas in not just you, but also everyone else in the class. Once a month we'll meet in a small group and receive small challenges from Cynthia. The work is all done outside of class. We'll share the results, learn how they were achieved, and enjoy the process. It is so much fun! $40 Supplies: The first assignment is to bring in to class "what I did on my summer vacation." Mondays, Sept. 30, Nov. 18, and Jan. 6. To sign up, click here, or call 814-238-4151 between 10-5:30, Monday through Saturday.

This classic quilt has traditionally been rather difficult to make. Although it looks like not much more than strip piecing, it's always been easy for the pieces to get a little wonky. But no more!

Patricia will give you all kinds of ideas for color and placement. $28 Supplies: BSS, Creative Grids pineapple ruler, lots of light and dark fabric scraps, or coordinated light and dark fat quarters.

Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous quarter-inch seam (whatever THAT is!). $42 Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order (you may borrow ours, but you should have one available at home for homework). You'll also need the pattern and all the fixin's! Stop by at least a few days before the class begins so we can help you pick out your fabric and notions. We suggest our Creative Grids rulers, which are easy to use with a non-slip grip and visible markings, and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy and easy to use (and safe!).
