Second Prairie Women's Sewing Circle Added in September
A unique, monthly club that will take you on a journey back in time as we explore life along the Oregon Trail. Gather together as the Prairie Women did, and hear anecdotal stories about their quilt-making, and what daily life was like for those who traveled by wagon trail. Each month we will be working on quilt projects from The Prairie Women Sewing Circle pattern set designed by Pam Buda. At each monthly gathering, you will receive a new quilt project pattern along with tips, techniques, and shortcuts for making the quilts. You will also experience pioneer life in a fun way with stories, food samples, and an old-fashioned quilting bee-type atmosphere. The club begins in September and each session runs for three months. You won't want to be left out as we begin Journey (Session) One so sign up today as we...journey the threads of time! (Scroll down for additional information in our Class section below.)

One Block Wonder    
Date: Saturday, September 22 (10 - 3)
Cost: $50

"One Block Wonder" is the term used by Rosenthal and Pelzmann in their books to describe quilts composed of a single repeating shape usually cut from one fabric, and then put together in a kaleidoscope arrangement. These quilts are fascinating and require constant input from the quilter, which makes for an engaging experience until the last stitch.

Sign up soon for a fun-filled day of working on your Judy Neimeyer projects. The best part? You will have a certified instructor on hand to help you if you need it.

Binding 101  
Date: Wednesday, November 14 (1 - 4)
Cost: $35
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
Learn the technique of bias double-fold binding with crisp corners and machine or hand finishes, all while making a cute "Three Pocket Purse". Class will also include a discussion of other binding techniques such as mock bindings and "pillow turn" bindings. Rather than working on a quilt, students will work on attaching bias binding to an 18" square of pre-quilted fabric. This will ensure that everyone completes turning four corners and finishes off the ends. (Kit fabric may vary from photo below.)
