We had a great day today at the shop with some very enthusiastic customers! It was fantastic to have you all visit, sign up for classes and pick out fabric for your projects. Thank you so much for spending part of your day with us!
For those of you who couldn't make it I took some pictures of most of the class samples. My camera and I had a disagreement so I didn't get a picture everything but here is part one of the classes. To be followed by part two soon ( as in as soon as I get new batteries in my camera!)

If any of these classes interest you check the Quilters Crossing Website for the schedule and come in to the shop to sign up!
Dolores wowed us with this:
A Christmas wallhanging sampler which uses Shiva paint sticks on black fabric. In this class you will learn how to use the Star Builder stamp set with the paintsticks and the Holiday rubbing plates set. The metallic paint sticks really set this off and the fairy frost fabric in the sashing and binding are perfect!
Next Dolores is offering "Frames", put out by the Maple Island pattern company, which is a great little pattern for someone just getting into quilting or who needs a refresher, a quick project or something quick to whip up as a gift.
Dolores is a trained textile surface designer so with a little arm twisting we convinced her to offer a class called Fabric Bling! This course will meet several times and each time you will learn a new technique which has to do with manipulating your fabric. If you are interested in art quilting, embellishment or just exploring ways to take your quilts to the next level this will be a great place to start! It will be a smorgasbord of new ideas.
She is also offering the One Block Wonder Encore class on The Cube. (pictures coming I promise!)

Next we have Kathy who is offering 2 classes, the first if Beginner Applique using the pattern Jacobean Rhapsody. Her stunning sample is shown below.

Kathy is also offering a class on Stumpwork which combines ribbon embroidery with a little beading and embellishment. Her exquisite samples really stood out today, my camera however...well the pictures are coming soon.

Margaret is offering a few classes, here are some pictures of her samples:
The X-block. This class uses just 3 fabrics for the quilt top. Good for beginners.
The next picture is her sample from the Fat Quarter Cut-Ups book. For this class you all work together on this pattern and then from the same pattern book you'll choose a second quilt to work through with Margaret helping you each step of the way!- 2 quilt tops in this 2 part class!
Margaret is also teaching a beginner machine quilting class which uses a large piece of muslin to practice your machine quilting skills on your home sewing machine so you can quilt all those beautiful tops you make!
Check for classes on Paper piecing also being offered.

Remember we are open 7 days a week so if you missed out today come on in and sign up as soon as you can. Spaces are limited.
Thanks again for making today such a great day! We hope you have as much fun at the shop as we do!
