Happy Sewing!




From In the Beginning Fabrics, we have Dragons: the Ancients. 
Six magnificent dragons grace the panel, and we have coordinates of dragonscale and celtic knotwork to complement the magnificent beasts.

I admit it, I absolutely love the Agate pattern from the Kaffe Collective.  So I bought it again and again and again in the hopes that you'll love it as much as I do.


Next we have Fiesta Horses by Laurel Burch for Clothworks  This group features two panels and 20 other fabrics that capture the beauty and spirit of the horse in Laurel's signature style


You still have time to sign up for Debra Ball's T-Shirt Class!  Turn that pile of sentimental T-shirts into a warm, useful quilt!  Saturdays, 4/9 & 23, 12:30-2:30.

Need a little dedicated sewing time with few distractions?  Gather up all your unfinished sewing and bring it to Capital Quilts. Enjoy time you can dedicate to getting those projects DONE! Kat will be here to offer suggestions, guidance, and support. Saturday, April 9, 5-9pm.

If you've ever wondered about English Paper Piecing, now is the time to find out!  There is ONE spot available in Beginning EPP, Tuesday, April 12th at 6pm.

We are pleased to bring you Adele Scott and her class on how to quilt any size quilt on your domestic machine! There are many ways to deal with the bulk of machine quilting. Learn some of the creative methods quilters have come up with to solve this problem. The right prep, products and techniques will get you quilting those larger quilts.  Adele will have you explore nine different techniques via Zoom on Saturday, June 25th.


CQ Cares (Community Sewing Projects)

We will also have kits available at the shop, please stop by to pick up one (or two). For those that want to sew from their stash, click on the picture for the beginner-friendly Charm Square Placemats pattern, or you can use your own pattern.

Please return all completed placemats to Capital Quilts.
Thank you for your continued support of the Capital Quilts Cares program. 

We have free pillowcase kits available!  We donate all pillowcases to Ryan's Care for Smiles, who in turn distributes them to children battling serious illness.  Pick one up next time you're in the shop, then complete it and return on your schedule. 

We also have free small kennel quilts available.  These little quilts are sent to shelters who take in pets displaced by natural disaster.  To quilters, they are a great beginner project, a use for leftover fabric, and a place to practice free motion skills.  To use your stash, visit
