The Classes

Color & Quilting

This workshop is designed to arm quilters with the tools and knowledge to build their own color plans for their blocks, quilts and other projects. They will learn how to make the most of their fabric choices and create the desired effects/impacts in their quilts. They will understand how to read and use the color wheel.

Explore Analogous, Complementary, Split-Complementary and Triadic color plans in fabric! Appreciate colors that just naturally look good together! Michelle will have quilters diving deep into their stash; figuring out how to arrange their fabric, analyze their fabric and determining how to augment their stash with wise purchases.

This class will begin at 3:00PM on June 16th.

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...

"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
