Classes and Clubs


Here at Prairie Point, we are an official Quilts of Valor shop. That means that every month, you can join us here to make quilts that will be presented to service members and veterans touched by war. Bring your own ideas and projects for quilts, or participate in a group project.

If you have learned the embroidery basics, join in the fun of putting those basics together with some buttons, beads, and ribbon to create a beautiful crazy quilt. The first class will be getting the foundation blocks together and talking about supplies. Each month we will learn and practice more stitches, variations on those stitches, and putting them together to create crazy, fun, and gorgeous blocks.
