Schoolhouse Classes 2009!

Have you heard about our annual Schoolhouse Series? This is a great day of quilting education, a trunk show of quilts, food, & fun.

We are so lucky that she has agreed to also teach during the morning! Linda’s “Perfect & Easy Applique” technique will be offered 3 times in the morning (with each time taking up two sessions).

  1. Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to reiterate how much fun School House is!! You get to learn a bunch of new and cool techniques while hanging out with the funnest people around, plus did I mention lunch and breakfast!! We pretty much never stop feeding you, in true Bay Window fashion.

    By the way, if you don’t know me yet my name is Maggy. You may recognize me from such patterns as “Maggy’s Flower Garden” or “Katie’s Favorite Sister” (which will be coming out next fall – right KT).

    Hope you all can make it this year, see ya there and
    Happy Quilting!!
