Coverlet queen Jenice and her four-person staff of master quilt-creators lead a patchwork of classes and retreats in a 176-year-old home deemed a local historic landmark. The beginner-adult sewing class teaches novice sewing-machine owners how to properly use their device, and the included materials kit further sets up students with scissors, thread, straight pins, a cushion, a seam ripper, a sewing basket, and a helpful booklet. Equipped with said tools, a fun fabric of their choice, and a saturated noggin sponge, students have everything they need to make two personalized pillowcases during the course of a four-hour session. With a maximum class size of eight students, instructors offer plenty of assistance, providing a cozy blanket of knowledge in response to any questions or confusion. Once students have learned the basics, they can continue to test their sewing mettle with one of Jenice’s personally designed patterns (not included with this Groupon) or peruse The Quilted Garden's impressive collection of antiques, including an uncommon assortment of bedpans and children's humor-proof potty chairs.

Buried in the woods, 15 single- and two-story log cabins line a path leading to a secluded frontier fortress. Masked combatants armed with Tippmann 98 paintball guns ponder the path's obstacles before slinking forward to meet their opponents. Along Bing Field Paintball & Airsoft Park's three wooded fields strewn across 35 acres, players sneak into sniping positions in the Frontier Field's two-story log cabins, the Vietnam Field's two-story guard tower, or our the newly designed World War II field that features several new two and three story buildings. Four speedball fields––air ball, barrel, concrete, and spool––accommodate paintball players on the other side of the wooded park. Paintball and airsoft packages grant visitors up to seven hours of play, which they can break up with refueling sessions spent scarfing down refreshments while gossiping about opponents' love lives at an onsite concessions stand.
