Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason but rather our ability to use thread and needle to sew our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a three-hour cosmetic clutch-making class at Quilt in a Day in San Marcos (a $50 value).

Quilt in a Day provides sewing students with all the materials and instruction they need for handmade projects. Seasoned threaders oversee pattern pupils in zipper installation, fabric choice, and design of Zippy Strippy bags. Lessons introduce basic sewing-machine operation and rotary-cutting fabric, as students learn to embellish their bags with buttons, ribbons, or a coded series of zeros and ones. Fabric, supplies, and access to a sewing machine are included with the class, though copies of Rumpelstiltskin are not.

Quilt in a Day

Through innovation and a passion for creation, Eleanor Burns revolutionized the process by which quilts are made. She cast off the shackles of scissors and templates for a more visceral approach that combines the ripping and stripping of fabric with an assembly-line approach to sewing. The new process brought an exciting speed to an activity once known for taking months and causing anyone who attempted it to grow a 4-foot beard. To spread the word and bolster the quilting community, she released her first book, Make a Quilt in a Day––Log Cabin Pattern.

Thirty years and 100 quilt books and patterns later, she continues to promote the art of the quilt and to improve the efficiencies of quilt construction. Along with a staff of fellow seamstresses, she began Quilt in a Day to further spread her message through simple and social classes filled with thorough and accurate instruction. Beginners can register for classes or attend a demo day, where refreshments fuel entertainment and scraps of fabric fly.
