What You'll Get
Before his well-known creation, Dr. Frankenstein experimented with custom jigsaw puzzles and patchwork quilts made of atomic particles. Stitch a greater whole with today's Groupon to The Quilt Place in Rockledge. Choose between two craft-creating options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of quilting fabrics and accessories.
- For $17, you get a four- to five-hour purse-making class (a $35 value). Each class requires a fabric kit ($25) and a stitching pattern ($9.50), which are not provided with this Groupon.
The Quilt Place's 8,000-square-foot quilting emporium lures stitchers of all skill levels with more than 10,000 bolts of fabric and a wide variety of patterns, books, and kits. Pick up quilting accessories and fabrics from name-brand designers, including Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller, Benartex, and RJR. The 45 mm rotary cutter ($29.95) slices through fabrics like Edward Scissorhands during a vivid nightmare. To add a patch of decadence to cloth-bound projects, the Michael Miller brick print ($9.25/yd.) features classic red-brick patterns, and the Wilmington Delicate Romance ($10.50/yd.) boasts muted floral roses and butterflies, which can double as an invisibility cloak during spring camping trips.
Opt for the second option to transform from a purse wearer to a purse designer and purse wearer. Overseen by experienced instructors, the Charming Little Purse class impels intermediate needle wielders to create custom bags replete with fashionable features. Craft a clutch, wristlet, or shoulder bag and boast to your old purse about your new carryall's attributes, including an ID holder, a zipper pocket, interior pockets, and a magnetic snap closure, which has been known to incite jealous rages in wall magnets and slap bracelets. Purse pursuers can bring their own fabric or opt to purchase a kit for $25. Classes are scheduled for Saturday, July 9, at noon; Wednesday, July 13, at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.; and Monday, July 18, at 10 a.m.
