2022 Clubs & Classes

We are excited to be offering so many classes and clubs this year! Several are limited on seats so sign up early!

Trends

Becki Mertens will be staying on top of the latest big quilting “Trends”. New patterns, fabric lines, rulers, notions etc!

This class will meet the 1st Wednesday of each month.

Bernina 101

Bonnie will walk you through the ins and outs of your Bernina Machine. No matter if it’s a new machine or one you have had for a while, if you would like to learn more about what your Bernina can do, line up some lessons for yourself!

By appointment only. Call for more details.

Quilts of Valor

TQB Quilt Brigade

Mission Statement: “The Mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor”

The Quilt Basket again will be hosting our local Quilts of Valor Group, TQB Quilt Brigade. This year the group is welcome to come during our Open Sew on the Second Monday of the month (10-4) or take home a project to work on and return it to The Quilt Basket. Come pick a project from the tub and help this group in making sure some beautiful quilts are made and ready to be presented to some very deserving service men and women.

Basket Club

Basket Club has always been a fun time for several of us to get together, sew, catch up and work on some new fun projects! This year Becki has two quilts to choose from. Liberty Belle uses the Gathering fabrics from Cora’s Quilts. Emma uses beautiful batiks by Anthology Fabrics. Or you can choose to do several smaller projects! Basket Club will continue to meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

Beginning to Intermediate Quilting

Want to learn to quilt but don’t know where to start…right here! Becki Mertens will teach you the ins and outs of quilting and then move you along as you are ready! This class will now be offered two Saturdays a month, the 2nd and 4th! You can come to either or both!

Machine Embroidery

Nanc Neihart’s Machine Embroidery Class is always so much fun! This year she is continuing to host it on the 3rd Wednesday/Thursday of the month! You will be able to leave your machines overnight and work on some really neat projects! She will also be scheduling some Machine Embroidery Retreats throughout the year.

Buttermilk Basin - Wool & Cotton - Quilts Thru the Year

Nancy Heine has made some fun, small (18″ square) wall hanging kits that use Wool & Cotton and feature a monthly quilt through the year! These kits will be available the first Tuesday of each month. If you need help, Nancy will be available.

Beginning Class for Kids

We will cover a class for kids, age 8 & up to learn to quilt. We will require an adult to attend with the child. We will teach basic sewing and have some fun projects for them to make. This class is being held the third Saturday of each month from 10-2.

Open Sew

We will have our classroom available on Mondays from 10 – 5. Join your friends and work on those projects that you haven’t quite finished. Call ahead to reserve a machine or bring your own.

Misc workshops, 4-H workshops, & Retreats

As always, watch the newsletter for upcoming retreats and workshops that we will be hosting throughout the year!

BLOCKS OF THE MONTH

All of our Blocks of the Month offer a sew day in our classroom with an instructor to guide you. If that day doesn’t work for you, you can bring them to either the Basket Club meetings where Becki can give you a hand or you can work through them on your own at home. If you get stuck on a section, we’re only a phone call away. We can also mail blocks to you each month.
