Upcoming Sew Days:




Let’s make flags! Create 2 small projects – a wall hanging and a mug rug - just in time for Independence Day. Try a new method to make multiple half-square triangles and practice sewing straight lines as you channel your own inner Betsy Ross. Both of these projects are fun to make for quilters of all skill levels. 

The class kit includes pattern and fabric to complete wall hanging and mug rug tops.

Make this fun-to-stitch runner (or door banner) to celebrate the USA. Learn easy methods for machine applique and curved stitching while creating this 16 1/2" x 48 1/2" patriotic runner. This great beginner project can easily be made shorter to fit a smaller table or to be used as a vertical door banner.  Come prepared to leave with at least a finished top...and have fun doing it!

Pattern is included with class fee and will be provided to each student in class.

Have you ever wondered how all those beautiful fabrics are designed and created? Have you ever wondered how a shop decides what fabrics to buy? Have you ever asked why a store can't get more of a fabric that you didn't buy enough of? If you answered yes to any of the above, then you don't want to miss this presentation.

Millie Gross, National Sales Manager for Northcott fabrics along with Shirley Mandler, our fabric rep, will be doing a presentation showing how fabrics are created, starting with the concept, to the printing, to delivery in the stores. Following this informative presentation, they will show you fabrics that would have been shown at Spring Quilt Market along with fabrics that will be previewed at Fall Quilt Market in October in Houston.

This is your chance to be a buyer for a day. Which fabrics would you buy for SUNSHINE QUILT CORNER if it was your decision to make? You will be seeing these fabric collections before most stores in the United States.

Can you keep a secret??????

Following the preview of future collections, a trunk show will be shared with you of quilts using the Northcott fabrics.

And... last, but certainly not least, there will be drawings for some great door prizes.

So sign up today! Seating is limited.


You can call, register online, or come by the store and register in person! (Check out our new arrivals while you're here!)
