Private Class
For times when a regularly scheduled
class just won’t do, we offer private
classes to fill the void. Let’s say that a
class you're interested in requires rotary skills, and you’re still snipping along
with scissors. Well a 1-hour private
class will bring you up to speed. Or say
that you really want to get the hang of
paper-piecing or some other skill. Or
maybe our classes just don’t fit in your
schedule. Talk to any one of us and
we’ll find you the right person at the
right time to teach you what you need
to know. $25 per hour per person.

Every quilter’s dream is to spend an
uninterrupted day devoted just to quilting, and we’ve devised a way to give you
just that. Our Day at the Quilting Spa
has become a perennial favorite and it
is back this year with another new mystery quilt from Debbie Caffrey.
Envision a day when you set up your
work area and begin to sew. Before
long someone offers you coffee, or maybe tea. At noon, enjoy your own bag
lunch while you take a break and chat
with some friends, whether old or new.
Back to work, but who wants to face
ripping out that mistake? Don’t worry,
we’ll have it all fixed for you. Light refreshments are ready in the afternoon,
and by the time you’re ready to leave
you’ll be well on your way to a finished
quilt top.
The best part? Purchase your fabrics for
the quilt at Pennington Quilt Works, and
your Day at the Quilting Spa is free!! The
pattern, snacks, drinks, and any help
you need is on us.
When you register for the Spa, you’ll be
given a supply list and some preparation instructions. Bring everything on
your spa day and we’ll provide the rest
of the directions, step by step, at the
pace you’d like.
Stay as long as you’d like from 10 am to
5 pm. Register now for one of these
