Panel Palooza:

 Interested in turning a panel into a wall hanging, throw or work of art!  We have selected a handful of panels to teach you both a simple or more advanced techniques of panel quilting.  I am not ashamed to say in the past panels have been called cheater panels because you can do something so quick, but you can create some really awesome projects from cheating! See below for each class! 

Panel Palooza I:  

Turn a panel into a wall hanging or throw by using coordinating fabric to add simple borders.  These will be one block panels; great for a beginner or a quick and easy project.  Choose from our selection of panels to create a treasure for your home or as a cherished gift!  This is a Make N Take type class.  You will have a quilt top done when you leave! Level 100: 

When:  2)Monday, February 12th @10am to 1pm. 3)Tuesday, February 13th @5:30 to 8:30pm. 4)Monday, February 19th @10am to 1pm. 5) Friday, February 23rd @5:30 to 8:30pm.

Cost: $10 per session (yes, come in and take more!)  Teacher:  Cynthia Concha.

Charity Project: Anti-Ouch Pillow:

Please come to our special sewing Make N Takes to help sew the Anti-Ouch Pillow Pouch for Breast Cancer Patients.  I found the pillow to be a great comfort after surgery last year.  We have fabric ready to be sewn.  If you have fabric you would like to donate; we need 3/8 or 13.5” of washed cotton.  We have the filling that you can use.  They do not take long to sew but give hours of comfort to those who need it.  You can visit the website at  The pillow/pouch will be distributed to local hospitals and treatment centers for our sisters! This charity project may repeat again throughout the year. Level 100.

Crochet: Learn Tunisian Crochet in one Lesson!:

The Tunisian stitch (also called the Afghan stitch) is done with a knitting needle with a crochet hook on the end.  So it's like knitting with a crochet hook ... or crocheting with a knitting needle!  Make a dishcloth and learn a new crochet technique.  If you are a knitter and have always wanted to crochet here’s your chance!  Level 100.
