Classes and Events

Classes are as follows.  If you can not make the appointed times but still want to take a class then contact us at the shop and let us know when you can take the class.  Individual classes are frequently scheduled, and cost no more than the group preplanned classes below.  I do many individual classes per week, and am willing to work with your schedule.  Have a group that wants a particular class or skill?  Contact us!  Please call 920-517-1910 or 920-748-2905, Milwaukee shop call 414-585-9995. We will continue to do the umbrella classes on request.  Many, many people have scheduled classes for these for their group or individually.  These classes are free with the purchase of supplies from the Bungalow.  You need to call ahead and reserve your date and time.  IMG_0556   June 17th Technique Tuesday.  Come in at 12:00 noon and learn how to make the “Plus Sign” quilt.  This can be explained very quickly with a design wall.  Learn the technique for the layout of this quilt.

IMG_1374 (640x480)       Row By Row Experience:  This is something that lasts all summer.  It begins in July, and you can find more information about which shops are participating by going to the Row by Row Experience website.  What happens is when you shop at a participating quilt shop, you can receive a free pattern for an entire row of a quilt.  There are some standardized rules for each shop that participates, so you can expect to have everything work out for you when you put your rows together.  This summer the theme is “seasons”.  Each shop will have a pattern for an entire row of a row by row quilt.  You don’t have to have every single one, just whichever ones you choose to include in your quilt.  If you complete a quilt and bring it in to a shop that has a row in your quilt, you can win prizes.  So go to Row by Row experience and find your state.  We will post a photo of our row when it is available.
