With over 35 teachers, that come from all over the U.S. and Australia, Piecemakers class repertoire is always expanding.

 

Piecemakers is also a quilt, craft, sewing and home decorating store with a sweet little tea room tucked into the center of the store serving lunch and sweet treats everyday. All day classes are served lunch as part of their class fee. As many as 9 special events, including flea markets and handcraft shows are held several times a year in Piecemakers parking lot.

 

Class information and registration is available on Piecemakers’ web site, www.piecemakers.com, and online store.  There is also a display room of class samples in the store, which is open 7 days a week from 9:00am to 5:30pm.

We enjoy seeing the pleasure students receive in learning something new, and also seeing the many friendships that are formed during classes.
