We've got lots of classes for many different skill levels and interests! Click here for the Class Calendar. (Click the forward arrow until you come to September.)

Five full days of classes by our Featured Instructors start on Tuesday, September 24 before Expo opens. If you take a Featured Instructor class on Tuesday or Wednesday, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at how we set up the show and hang the quilts.  Expo starts on Thursday, September 26, and that's when our Creative Handwork and Make & Take classes begin.

When possible, we've listed the supplies needed for each classe; some classes have links leading to the instructors' supply lists. Sewing machines are provided in our Make & Take classroom, so no need to bring your own. Creative Handwork classes do not require sewing machines. 

Kit Fees are listed with the full class description. This is a fee you will pay to the instructor, in class, so come prepared.  

You can register right here for your classes. Class and admission tickets will be mailed out in early September.
