Skill Levels


The following guide will help you find classes that are right for you. A basic knowledge of your machine is necessary for all classes. Please plan on bringing your own machine and user manual to class. If you have never sewn before, our "Quilting Prep" class is recommended. 
True Beginner:
 "I can sew a straight line, but have never taken on a quilting or sewing project." 

Advanced Beginner: 
"I have completed simple projects and am eager to learn more." 

Intermediate: 
"I know how to use my machine well, and have both sewing and quilting projects under my belt." 

Advanced: 
"I have a vast understanding of my machine, and have completed some challenging projects."
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.
