This 10-week quilting course teaches everything you need to know to start making your own quilts. This course covers the basics: getting to know your sewing machine, rotary cutting, fabric selection, and a variety of techniques for machine piecing quilt blocks. You make a sampler quilt and learn to sandwich, quilt, and bind your masterpiece. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the quilter's art, which is both ancient and modern!
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
