New Classes

Little Monster Class
Make-and-Take Minkee Monster
Saturdays, October 15 & 29, November 5, 12, 19
3:00pmmonster.jpg$25.00 (all supplies included)

Let your little monster play Dr. Frankenstein and build his or her own little Minkee Monster.  This class is open to children of all ages.  Parental supervision is required for children under age 5. Your child will choose the monster (14 fun creatures from which to choose), the monster's fur (Minkee) and all colors required to complete the embroidery design.   We will hoop the fabric and thread the embroidery machine.  Your child will push the start button to embroider his creation.  We will remove the monster from the machine and slit the monster's back and turn the monster right side out.  Depending upon the child's age, he or she will stuff the monster and hand stitch the back's opening, under supervision, of course.  We will hand stitch the back opening if required.  Your little monster will be able to bring his or her little monster home at the end of the class.

To register, please call or email the store.

Class size is limited, so enroll your little monster(s) early.  This class will also be added to our classes on demand.


What a pain! We're stuck with Jane!
Wednesday, November 16. 
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

As health issues made it necessary for Toni to move from her Wisconsin home, we have lost her constant assistance in our store.  She will still be available for classes if it is economically worth her time to drive the distance. We are working with her to develop a few new classes in the future.  We do want to keep her around.

We have had a few people ask about Teatime with Toni.  Unfortunately, we will not be continuing this class.  However, we will be offering a new class, "What a pain! We're stuck with Jane!"

For this class, Jane will be available to help you with your projects in progress, get you started on a new project, and help you with any sewing or embroidery questions you may have. Our first class will be Wednesday, November 16th.

So that we can prepare the classroom, please R.S.V.P. so that we can set up the classroom. Bring your own machine or reserve one of ours.  If you do intend to use one of our machines, please advise when you R,S.V.P.  Thank you.

Classes on Demand

Waffle Time Table Runner

Kwik Crazy Class


Create one set of 12 blocks out of 12 different fabrics.  This is a fun, fast and easy freezer paper pattern and uses the stack and slash method.  Use one pattern, Kwik Crazy or KWIK Crazy Too, or mix it up with a combination of blocks from both patterns. Although this simple technique if perfect for beginners, the experienced quilter will have fun experimenting with different fabric styles to create very different looking quilts.  Sample quilt tops are on display in the store. For details please call the store.

New classes are forming.  Call the store for details.
