QuiltWorks Classes - Our class schedule is on-line. We have something for everyone so take a look or come in and see the samples!

 

Sew Teach Me is non-profit that started at QuiltWorks. The vision of STM is to match mentors with youth so they can learn to sew for free. Our first match was April 10, 2017 and we have over 98 children in or through the program and 27 screened and trained mentors. If you are interested in more information it's available at QuiltWorks. We always welcome new mentors, new students and donors for the program. There are many different ways to help out and to pass our love of sewing to the next generation.

 

Sew Teach Is Officially a National Program - The STM board has developed a General Manual that is a community's guide to starting their own program and it is completely supported by the website. We have 11 Teams, 7 in Oregon, 3 in Washington and 1 in Pennsylvania. Marilyn is taking road trips visiting quilt and sewing machine shops and giving presentations to quilt guilds. Visit sewteachme.org to learn more about how other communities can begin a program to teach our youth how to sew.

 

December January Gallery - Mini groups from Central Oregon will be exhibiting challenges from this past year.

 

Longarm Promotion - We are thrilled to have two great quilters for our long arm, Vickie Minor and Karen "KD" Dougan.  We offer edge to edge quilting and have a large variety of designs to offer.
