WINTER CLASSES 2020
The Important (But Boring) Details

  • Class fees must be paid at the time of registration. For your convenience, we can accept your credit card payment over the telephone. We understand that a registrant may not be able to attend a class for any number of worthy reasons, but to ensure that classes do not have to be cancelled at the last minute because of withdrawals, no refunds or credits will be issued unless the class is cancelled by Quilty Pleasures. Placing your name on a waiting list without payment does not guarantee you a space.
  • If a class is full, give us your name for a waiting list. If numbers warrant, we will schedule additional classes.
  • Classroom machines are available, but please reserve your machine in advance. When using a classroom machine, you still must supply your own needles and thread, and if you wish to keep your bobbin thread, you will be required to pay for the bobbin.
  • PLEASE CHECK YOUR CLASS SUPPLY LIST AND PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE COMING TO CLASS. AS A COURTESY TO YOUR CLASSMATES AND TEACHER, AND TO OBTAIN THE MAXIMUM BENEFIT FROM THE ALLOTTED CLASS TIME, PLEASE COME TO CLASS WITH THE CUTTING SPECIFIED AND OTHER PREPARATION WORK COMPLETED, AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF THE REQUIRED FABRICS AND SUPPLIES.
  • Please note that we do not give refunds for cut fabric. If we cancel a class, we will be happy to refund the cost of the class plus any rulers, books, patterns, etc. that were purchased specifically for that class (must be in original packaging and condition when returned). If you don't want to take the chance of being stuck with unwanted fabric (is that a thing?), please wait to buy your fabric when you know the class is definitely happening.
  • Supplies specified on the supply list are all available at Quilty Pleasures unless otherwise noted. If a specific product is listed, please do not make substitutions. Our teachers are familiar with the products they recommend and cannot guarantee good results with alternative brands.
  • Make sure that all of your supplies are labelled and identifiable as yours. Quilty Pleasures is not responsible for items lost or misplaced during class.
  • We offer a 10% discount on class supplies. In general, all class supplies may be purchased at Quilty Pleasures. Thank you for supporting your local quilt shop!
  • Please ensure that your machine is in good working order prior to class. We do have a resident technician if you think you might need a tune-up, and carry or can order feet, bobbins and parts for almost any make and model.
  • During the winter months, please don't forget to bring slippers or indoor shoes to class.

An essential accessory for anyone with a sewing machine! The clear vinyl pockets keep all of your feet, needles, and small gadgets protected and accessible, while the zipper closures keep them safe and secure. Designed to hang on the wall by your machine or fold up for travelling, the foot folio allows you to always put your best foot forward!

Cost: $ 60.00
Pink Sand Beach is one of our favourite bag pattern companies, and the Hanalei Bag is a perfect example of why. It's a nice, ladylike size, but it holds a lot -- there are two good-sized pockets on the outside (one zipped for security) and six interior pockets -- and the instructions are crystal-clear. If you have a focus fabric that you want to show off, here's your chance!

Cost: $ 60.00
This novice class starts from the basics -- preparing, measuring, and rotary cutting fabric, perfecting the elusive 1/4" seam, and pressing. It will then lead you through the process of making a sampler quilt that can be as funky or traditional as you like. You'll make a variety of traditional pieced blocks, along with some applique, and they'll all be assembled into a quilt top that you'll be proud to display as your first ever quilt. But not your last!

Cost: $ 190.00
