Well, the hot weather finally arrived!  What?!  You thought we were going to be so lucky as to not have excedingly hot weather?  I guess that bubble has burst.  So, come work in our air conditioned classroom.  Quiltin' With the Quails just means sit and sew and use our tall cut table, extra wide ironing board, push our tables together to prepare a quilt for home quilting, and enjoy our company.  Even if another class is scheduled in the morning there are often afternoons available.  Call us.  209-536-4009.  We ask for $5.00 (cleaning, power costs)  I ask for $20.00 an hour for direct instruction.

WHAT?!  YOU HAVEN'T TAKEN A JELLY ROLL RUG CLASS YET!  DO THE EASIER ONE!  THIS SATURDAY!  START AT 9:30-4:00 or WHENEVER.  IT'S THE RECTANGULAR RUG.  NO SEWING AHEAD OF TIME.  YOU NEED 40-42, 2 1/2" STRIPS (A JELLY ROLL) OR CUT YOUR OWN.  YOU NEED   2 1/4" BATTING STRIPS; 50 YARDS WORTH.  A sewing machine that can make a 5.5 zig zag stitch, jeans or heavy top stitch needle (90/14 or 100/16)                                                                            

GRAFFITI - Friday, August 3rd  10:00-4:00  $35.00   FUN, FUN, FUN! SIMPLE TOO!
This has a caveman quilting aspect to it.  Optional free form cuttingThe curves are so gentle that it is like sewing a straight line.  You only need 16 Fat Quarters!  STASH BUSTER!  I love teaching this one.  Imagine it in brighter Batiks.  See the secondary star? This only has 8 fabrics;16 is better.
