Little Cottage Quilt Shop Classes

I have been delayed in getting this out on the website.  It’s been a bit crazy here at the Cottage.  Our classroom is up and running (still needs a few final finishing touches), but it’s so wonderful to have.  The audio/visual equipment arrived and has been installed and tested.  There’s a learning curve there for sure. :{   We have held 3 classes so far and it’s working out wonderfully !!  We are so happy to have it to use. (the Medina Garden Club will be trying out the new A/V system Feb. 11)

Sooooooooooooo, here is the list of classes we are offering.  I am open to suggestions for anything you are interested in, just let me know.  Plus, 2 of the classes we had this past week are in high demand and we will be scheduling them again.  So keep in touch and watch both this web page and FaceBook (Little Cottage Quilt Shop) for more information on dates and times.  Or as always, come in or call for more information 830-589-2502


Classes coming up

Please come in and sign up for any class you are interested in. When I have enough students to do a class, I will schedule the date and time for that class & contact all who signed up.

We have a huge NEW classroom fully equipped with a  4’ X 8’ cutting table,  a 4’ X 8’ ironing table,  5 (so far) 8′ tables for students, sitting area for meetings and socializing, state of the arts audio/visual system and a 6’ round dining table for meetings, coffee or luncheons.   We are soon to have a fully equipped kitchen thru the “pass-thru” to the classroom.  (some fees may apply)
