2021 Covid-19 Update

Due to potential travel and meeting restrictions, our coordinators have had to consider the safety of both the speakers and our members. Please note any possible changes to individual events.

Piecing Partners strives to offer a wide variety of talented and motivational guest speakers.  These gifted presenters teach us many things, not only about quilts and the art of quilting, but how to persevere and grow during the process.  Please join us as we expand our knowledge and perspective!

 

Presentations are given during our morning guild meetings.  Half-Day workshops are typically held the afternoon of the meeting, and Full-Day workshops the following day.

  • Most Half-Day workshops will be from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm.

  • Most Full-Day workshops will be from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm.

 

Class prices:

  • Half-Day workshops $30 Members/$40 Non-Members

  • Full-Day workshops $55 Members/$70 Non-Members

  • One-and-a-Half Day workshops $85 Members/$110 Non-Members

  • All Class sign ups will be taken starting at the January meeting

 

Payment: ​ We accept checks, cash and credit card for the classes.  Your payment is your receipt and reservation.

Cancellation Policy:  Money will be refunded if someone on the waiting list fills your spot or if the class is canceled.  Otherwise, you will receive a class credit for use on a future class.  Sign-up priority is given to Piecing Partners Quilt Guild members.

January 19, 2022

Community Outreach Programs, PPQG Members

Genie Brown, Robin Thorne and Becky Chapin will be reviewing what busy bee quilters we've been fulfilling requests for quilts of all sizes and what organizations we're supporting. 

 

January 19 Afternoon: Sit and Sew 

The afternoon will be a sit and sew where we'll have a couple of kits to work with for putting together a top or 2.  Just plan on bringing your machine and neutral thread. OR if you have a project you’d prefer to work on, bring it! 

Send me an email before January 19th so that I'll know how many tables to set up.
