 Saturday "Sew-in" with Amy

It's like a retreat, but without the drive time. Come in for an evening of laughter, friendship (both old and new), shopping and hopefully a little sewing.

Amy will be available to help you with your projects and shopping as well as to provide a little humor and good cheer. Bring your dinner or we will order delivery.

Please call ahead to reserve your space. Cost is $10 for the evening, from 5PM (or as soon as you can get there) until 11PM (if you want to keep sewing that late.)  

Hostess: Amy Skinner, Fee: $10

Saturdays - 5:00PM to 11:00 PM

1st Saturday Sew…What?

Please join Dianne for this monthly class.  We decide as a class what projects to tackle, so if you are in class, you get to help decide what our future projects will be. I focus on teaching you how to get accurate piecing and the offer multiple techniques to help you achieve the results you want. If we are working on a quilt or large project, we may take a couple of months to finish it before starting a new project. My goal as a teacher is for you to have fun, learn something new and to make sure you can finish your projects.  You are always welcome to bring a project we have worked on before and work on that if you are not ready to start a new project.

Please bring something you have made  for SHOW & TELL to be entered in a drawing for a prize. You will need to bring/purchase supplies, patterns, fabric, etc. for the projects you choose.

 

Each student will be responsible for providing their own lunch.

Bags & Accessories Club

Due to the popularity of so many different bags, I am changing things up to make it easier for you to get a class on the bag you want to make! I’m still teaching this class every month.  The difference is that YOU get to choose from ANY of the “Bag Club Bags”  whenever you come to class. I’ll have a sample of all the bags you can do for this class. For some of the larger bags, such as Ultimate Travel Bag or A Place for Everything, you may need to attend more than one month to finish the bags. You will need to purchase the pattern for the bag you want to make and get all supplies, fabrics and have the notions and equipment required for completing the bag. I have a printout of “Equipment List for All Dianne’s Bag Classes” that will list all the equipment and notions that you may need for your   projects. You may not need ALL things for all the projects, but it is a good

idea to have these items on hand for successful bag making!

This is an all day class, so bring a sack lunch or feel free to order in lunch.

 Tucker University -  New Daytime Session of Tucker University

 

There is a new session of Tucker University opening up beginning February 7th. These classes will be held from 1 pm to 4 pm on the first Thursday of each month.

The cost of the classes is $15.00 each. Sign up for one month or for the first six months at once. Students who sign up for the whole 6 month session will receive a

binder with dividers and page protectors for their Design and Technique Sheets and tool instructions.

 

The first class, February 7th, will be an extended class so that we can do the first and second sessions at once to get caught up with the other classes. The fee for this

month will be $30.00 instead of $15.00 and the time will be from 10 am to 4 pm. The class will cover the Tucker Trimmer I and the V Block tools.  Call or come by

today to get signed up.                                                                     

 “What is Tucker University?” you may be asking. Tucker University is a series of classes using Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Designs tools and technique sheets to

make accurate and precise units.

If you’ve ever wanted to make accurate Flying Geese blocks, V blocks, Corner Beam blocks or Lemoyne Star blocks (just to name a few) then these are the classes

for you.

Nikki Mundt is teaching several sessions of the classes from 6 – 9 pm. The cost of each class will be $15.00. The “Tool of the Month”,

Technique and Design sheets for that tool will be required for class and will be available at Quilt Country. As a bonus, a binder set up with dividers and page protectors

will be given to students who sign up for all six classes at the beginning of the series.

Each monthly class will focus on a specific tool and the many ways it can be used to make units that can be combined with other basic units to make a wide array of layouts.
