Let the School Bell Ring Block of the Month Class & Kits

Happy Hour Snap Happy Bag

The Pine Needle is going back to school with an old favorite in a colorful new look! The bell is ringing and it is calling you to class where learning is fun and exciting! These tried and true lessons will teach you a new skill every month. Your first class begins with templates for the house block and expertly guides you through the process. Then, with each new lesson, you'll surround the house with pieced trees, flying geese, crazy patch flowers and a mixture of stars and blind hem appliqué. As the months go by, you will develop your knowledge of half square triangles, quarter square triangles, diamonds, paper piecing and the many uses of freezer paper. Earn your ‘degree” in quilt-making with this scholarly sequence designed by Sandi Ray exclusively for The Pine Needle. Your diploma is a 66" x 77" quilt that you will be proud to hang anywhere. First set of three classes: Wednesdays, October 5, November 2 & December 7 10–1 pm or 6–9 pm Maggie Hayes • all levels • $45 Let the School Bell Ring Block of the Month $24.95 each month for nine months Let the School Bell Ring Finishing Kit $44.95 includes three border fabrics and binding fabric
