At The Quilter’s Market, we’re committed to teaching kids how to sew! Besides being a basic life skill, sewing something tangible and beautiful with one’s own hands is a satisfying and rewarding experience that can be enjoyed your whole life.

Our classes are designed for children age 7 and older.

Kids’ Basic Camp

Anxious to learn how to sew and quilt, this is the class for you. In this class you will start with our Basic Sewing Class. You will learn how to sew on a machine, and will actually make a pin cushion.  You will then move on to Basic Quilting where you sew a table topper, quilt it, and bind with a fusible binding.  Moving on you will make a Zippy Bag which allows you to use your new found sewing and quilting skills. You will also learn how to put in a zipper. We round out this camp making Fabric Boxes which require both sewing and quilting skills.  Once you complete this camp you are eligible for all our Kid’s classes at The Quilter’s Market.

Kids’ Three Technique Wall Hanging

Want to learn some new quilting/piecing techniques, and create something fun? Then this is the class for you!  In this newly developed wall-hanging class you will make three 12 inch blocks and turn them into an adorable wall hanging. For one block you will use the Ten Sister’s fusible grid technique, another you will paper-piece and the last one you will appliqué. Once your blocks are completed you will put them all together with sashing and borders. You will then quilt your wall-hanging and finish it off with a fusible binding.  You will create a cute, fun project that is sure to make you proud of your new skills and give you reason to brag!
