We have listed the most popular projects here.  It is possible to sew other easy projects that are not listed here – speak with the teacher beforehand.

We also have pre-cut project kits available for sale at the classroom, as well as some fabrics, bags of stuffing, batting, some thread, elastic, and cord, etc.

We have many books of patterns for special quilts at the classroom – some are easy and some are more challenging.  See us in advance to determine supply list.

We can also custom embroider simple names, etc. at the classroom to personalize a project.  Speak with us first to determine the cost.
