Like cubist hot-water bottles or chiseled marble socks, quilts are works of art that can keep toes warm at night. Learn to fabricate cozy creations with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a 2.5-hour table-runner-making class with all materials included (a $69 value) or $69 worth of quilting classes and materials at The Quilting Bee in Chesapeake.
The Quilting Bee delights needle workers of all abilities with an assortment of stitch-ameliorating merchandise and a variety of classes. Expert instructors schedule the individualized 2.5-hour table-runner class around students’ busy timetables, allowing seam assemblers to craft a 16”x40” table runner for bare-midriffed buffets in between meetings, family outings, or sustainable needle harvesting. No previous sewing or thimble-modeling experience is necessary to attend the table-runner class thanks to adroit thread tutors who answer any questions and guide pupils through the perils of needle-based fabric taming. Since The Quilting Bee provides a pre-cut fabric kit to all class takers and lends sewing machines to those who don’t have their own, students can leave their spinning jennies and gold-plated bobbins at home.
Today’s Groupon can be used toward any of The Quilting Bee’s other classes, including a Placemat Craze class ($15, not including the suggested book) that forges cloth landing strips for incoming platters, or an intermediate Grandpa’s Dots class ($35) wherein needle wielders construct a 1930s-era reproduction quilt to wear as a cape for upcoming foxtrot-offs. Most classes run approximately two hours and each class is capped at 12 students. Groupon holders can also opt to stock up on quilting merchandise such as water-soluble fabric markers ($4.49), seam rippers ($8.95), and a plenitude of patterns for ferret overalls.
