Come sew with us each month! We will be making a sampler quilt based on the Pioneer Women's experience.

This fun BOM quilt celebrates positive and uplifting words for each month. Make a mini quilt or 12 pillow covers.

Students should be comfortable with their sewing machines before class starts. This is not a beginning sewing class, but a beginning quilt-making class that thoroughly covers all of the steps in creating a quilt. We will cover fabric selection, cutting, piecing, quilting and binding. Over the course of 8 lessons, students will be making their own finished quilt.
