Once you have taken the introductory class you can rent the HQ-Avante for $15.00 per hour. Most bed quilts take 3-4 hours (with an all over design).
Class cost is $40.00 for 3 hours.

Quilts of Valor "Under Our Wings"
The Quilter's Garden has registered as a "Quilts of Valor" shop. This is a non-profit program that provides quilts to wounded military personnel. The "Under Our Wings" part of the program introduces non-quilters to the fun of quilting by pairing the non-quilter (the Rookie) with an experienced quilter (the Coach). The Coach will bring a sewing machine and guide the Rookie to make a quilt that will go to a wounded soldier or sailor as recognition and a thank-you for serving our country. Call the shop to register as a "Coach" or a "Rookie". Patterns are free, there is no class charge. Any supplies purchased for this program will receive a discount. New red, white, and blue fabrics will be arriving soon. If you already have 100% cotton that you would like to use, bring it in.
The list of classes below are “on demand.” That means you need to get your name on a list for the class. Once we have 3 or more signed up, we call and schedule the date most convenient for all of you. We have samples of all the “on demand” classes in the shop.
These classes are:
Quick Trip $40 +purchase of the pattern book at 20% discount
This quick and easy quilt resembles a traditional “Trip Around the World”, but there is only 1 seam to match in the entire quilt! How easy is that?! Six quarter yards and border fabric is all you need for class. Everyone has that in their stash.
Not Quite a Kaleidoscope $25
A print with lots of curves is ideal for this quilt. (Florals work great!) You’ll learn to match your print repeats and slice the squares. It’s fun and easy, too.
Quilt Binding $15
You do need a quilt ready for the binding for this class, but it could be as small as a place mat. Joining your binding strips on an angle, machine sewing the binding to the quilt, making a mitered corner, joining the ends of the strips on an angle, and hand sewing a “blind stitch” will all be covered in this class.
Raw Edge Flannel Quilt $20 (TQG member $15)
Time to make the raw edge flannel quilt before the weather turns! With all the new flannel we have in stock [wolves, bunnies, baby, boy, girl, and more] you can make a few quilts. This is a great way to use the small pieces of batting you have around. Register for the class and receive 20% discount off your flannel!
Many classes are limited in size so please register early to ensure your place in class. The Quilter's Garden accepts cash, check, Visa/MC, American Express, Discovery or debit card for payment at time of registration. If a class cannot be held at the planned time (power outages, flooding, etc.), re-scheduling will be prompt. Refund of class fees will only be given 7 or more days prior to the beginning of each class series.
