We put out a new class schedule every four months. Our classes are taught by local teachers who are knowledgable in their area of expertise.  We also bring in out of town teachers on a special event basis.  The best way to find out about these events is to sign up for our newsletters.  We post regularly to Facebook as well.

Lemon Zest

Lemon Zest is a fun pattern that has the "Triangle-Squares Technique and lots of opportunity to learn how to make those perfect triangle points. This pattern is a 46" x 63" pattern size which can easily be converted into larger sofa size with added fabric to borders.

Progressive Quilting

This class is for individuals who are familiar with, and who have practiced, quilting on a domestic machine. Deb will introduce her method of Progressive Quilting, in which machine quilting is done as the quilt is assembled. This eliminates the need to roll the quilt to fit in the space to the right of the needle. Intrigued? Join Deb for more info. Prerequisite is Deb’s Machine Quilting class or machine quilting experience.

Cost: $ 50.00

Class Notes


If you are interested in taking a class and are unable to attend, just find a friend or a group of friends and LSQW will schedule a time with the teacher so you may take the class. Please purchase all materials for your class ahead of time.  Due to copyright issues no sharing of patterns or books during class will be allowed. 

Please arrive at class fifteen minutes early to allow time for setup.  Please do not arrive any earlier than this time!

Many classes require some prep work to be done before class. Arriving unprepared will prevent your class from proceeding smoothly. Please be sure to review the entire pattern/book before class.


BSS (basic sewing supplies) are required for most classes (scissors, pins, rulers, thread, et cetera). Double-check to make sure you have your foot pedal and cord for your machine.


As a courtesy to your fellow students please silence your cell phones or set them to vibrate. If you need to take a call during class, please step outside.

We ask that you refrain from wearing strong perfumes.
