We offer a wide variety of classes for quilters of all styles and skill levels.  The experienced instructors are friendly, and there is a no pressure atmosphere that encourages learning and creativity. The classes are a great way to make new friends. 

Classes are posted for: 
- Learning new techniques and patterns 
- Open sew-a-longs 
- Charity meetings and sewing time (e.g. Quilt of Valor, Case for Smiles)
- Events 
- Clubs for individuals working on similar projects 

Open sews are when you bring in a project of your choice to “hangout” with others.  Your projects may involve: piece cutting, piecing, EPP, paper piecing, planning, picking fabrics for your project, basting, free motion quilting on a domestic machine , binding, etc.   There are three design boards in the classroom to be used for laying out blocks and rows.   There are also some knitters that join the group, so bring a friend to hangout with.  If you have any type of a sewing project, even clothing or bag making - everyone is welcome.

Sewing machines are available for rent ($10 cash applied to the Quilt of Valor fund).  If your machine is being serviced, or you are on vacation without a machine - you can still join the fun.  

A great feature of The Quilt Lovers Hangout location is that we are in the same parking lot of several lunch/dinner options.  The restaurants available in the same parking lot include: Mexican, Rib City Grill, etc.  There are also multiple places that will deliver to the quilt shop.   For individuals that bring lunch, we have a refrigerator available for use.   We do not have a full kitchen for cleaning dishes. 

All classes have a class fee and/or book fee. All classes must be paid for at time of registration.   The website will not allow you to add a class for payment, if the first session of the class has already started.  Pre-registration is preferred, since this allows us to prepare for the number of students coming and also avoids having the class cancelled if there are not enough students.

CANCELLATION and REFUND POLICY:  We make a commitment to our teachers one week prior to the start of each class. Refund will be made for cancellations ONE WEEK or more ahead of class starting date. If you find you are unable to attend after the one week deadline, you may find a replacement student to take your place. If class is canceled due to insufficient enrollment, enrollees will receive a full refund.
