Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to begin a NEW aspect of my business and you are ALL invited!!  As many of you know I am a Certified Judy Niemeyer Instructor and teach her paper piecing methods in addition to teaching other quilting classes.

But because I run my business out of my house and ship fabric all over the world from there, my home can't accommodate classes and I travel... I will continue to travel and the fabric part of my business will remain in the house.  For those who are more local, you will now have a place where you can come and sew and learn.

Let me introduce you to
  The Quilter's Classroom @ Canton Village Quilt Works

This will be my new home away from home.  Over the next few weeks, I will be transforming this wonderful place into a quilting classroom.  I love it... it is rustic, charming and full of character.

It is located in an historic building in Winsted, CT called Whiting Mills. I will be amongst many other artists that include photographers, painters, potters, woodworkers, fiber artists, and quilters!  Here is an artist rendering from years ago.  It is the brick building.

Here is the inside of my classroom...

The walls will have continuous design walls from the front of the room to the back on both sides!!! 

Tables are being delivered on Wednesday and I have 4 of the chairs assembled, the remainder will be done on Wednesday....

Comfy height adjustable chairs for some good quilting time!  Love the wood floors in here!

If you would like to come and see me and this space, you can come this weekend!!

I will be there!!  I will also be posting a class schedule soon and you can register online.  There will be open sew times on the calendar as well.  So if you just want to come and sit and sew or work on a charity project you can!  Cool!!

Here is a link to Whiting Mills.  

Look someone is in my classroom already... she is as excited as I am!!

Hope to see you this weekend!  Keep checking back for my schedule!

Until Next Time...
