Don't have enough room in your house to easily sandwich a quilt? Bring your top, backing, batting, and supplies to CQ and we will help you sandwich that quilt in no time! Sandwiching services are offered twice a month, once during the day and once during the evening. NOTE: If you are using a longarm quilter, you do NOT need to sandwich. "Emergency" appointments may be made depending on room and staff availability.
Bruce, our machine technician, comes to the shop on selected Sundays and spends the afternoon with us. While he is here, he can clean and tune up your sewing machine. All brands are welcome. It takes about an hour, and you get to take your machine home the same day!
These quilts are tremendously important to the men and women who serve our country in the military. Help us support our vets by making a Quilt of Valor. The group will make one quilt. All fabric is provided. Just bring your sewing machine, supplies, and lots of energy! Capital Quilts Cares program
Kim Jalette will lead Second Saturday in 2020, and will teach the Tara BOM from Linda McGibbon of Lakeview Quilting. This BOM focuses on precision piecing, and is intended for the intermediate to advanced quilter. Kits featuring Windham's Tara fabric line by Nancy Gere will be available. This BOM is inspired from an actual quilt that has been handed down from one generation to the next in The McGibbon family household. Every block holds a special meaning near and dear to Linda and she is ready to share it with the world. The original quilt was entirely paper pieced. This new BOM pattern is designed and written with traditional piecing methods in mind. Because Linda has a love for paper piecing, she is also including a copy of the paper patterns as a free added bonus. Paid club members may ask to join our FaceBook group for additional discussion!
