(From the Webmaster): Of course, with the Covid-19 Situation in-place at this time, all classes are "on hold". I will update information here when such-information makes sense to do so.
Stay safe and at home.

(From the Webmaster: Thank you for your class pictures and your after-class completed-work's pictures. If your piece is now completed and you can share the work with us -- don't hesitate to contact me or Sonja. I may be reached by eMail through the pointer-to at the end of this Web page; Sonja may be reached either by eMail or at the store.)

To my Students, Customers, and Friends!

Hello, everyone!!!

What a 2020, eh? Now... we are into 2021.

I have decided that (at this time), due to COVID-19, to "shut down" class-wise as we head into Summer 2021. Will that change as the mid-year 2021 moves along? We see. We look forward to Fall 2021..... That said, though - Please see the comment below about possible classes if you are interested.

In the meantime, I have started thinking about classes/dates for Fall2021/Winter2021/22 classes. If you have any comments as to what YOUR plans are as relates to my classes "down the road" - of course, just get back to me eMail-wise or while you are at the store. If you have some special "needs" now is the time to speak up.

I look forward to seeing you - and, working with you - in a class or at the store (Bernina World of Sewing, in Raleigh) eventually!!!!

For info:

  • Match Play (I am currently considering this as a limited-attendee class Fall 2021 or Winer 2021/22. Please get back to me if you are interested in such.)
    Class Description: We take a traditional block and create a contemporary quilt design while including the importance of color placement and balance. This is a great opportunity to work with some of the challenging fabrics from your stash.

  • Beginners Start to Finish (May happen in Fall 2021 - We see.)
    Class Description: If you always have wanted to learn how to make a quilt - come and join us for two relaxing Saturdays. This class will teach you how to make a quilt from start to finish, including straight-line machine quilting and finishing the quilt with a binding. This is a true beginner's class. This is an ideal class for "busy" people -- almost no homework! Also, a good class for a young person who is experimenting to see if he/she enjoys sewing. Note: This class requires that you have a sewing machine, at home, for any necessary homework.
    Option-1 and Option-2

  • Blooming 9-Patch (May happen in Winter 2021/22 - We see.)
    Class Description: Ok! A number of you asked for a return of this class, that works with a traditional pattern and contemporary color arrangements. The beginning of this class will include help in fabric selection and effects of particular fabric and colors. You will be amazed how the piece "falls into place". This is a good class for beginners - or, anyone - ready for the next step.

    Class Sample Size: 60"x70"

  • One Block Wonder (Completed long-ago... in February 2020)
    Class Description: Yes, the class was back! As a reminder, the class description was: If you are ready for your 1st, 2nd or 3rdů choose a fabric that you really like - and I promise that you will have fun, with lots of surprises, while creating your One Block Wonder quilt. Join us for new adventures with your fabric!

    65" x 70"

    70" x 80"

Send me an eMail if you are interested in the above classes Fall 2021 or Winter 2021/22 as part of a limited-attendee class: Just eMail to:

Good luck to you all - with YOUR projects.
