Saturday Sampler 2023 - quilt club for everyone, everywhere!

We are excited to have Saturday Sampler in person for 2023, but if you cannot make it to the class, we will be offering a virtual option through ZOOM – which will be included in the same email with the monthly tutorial. For more information, continue reading below.

WHEN: We will meet the first Saturday of each month, at 9am (Doors will open at 8:30 for you to get settled in and chat before class). Here are the dates for 2023: Jan. 7th | Feb. 4th | Mar. 4th | Apr. 1st | May 6th | June 3rd | July 8th | Aug. 5th | Sept. 9th | Oct. 7th | Nov. 4th | Dec. 2nd.

PATTERN: At the January 7th class, we will be handing out your full pattern. For those of you participating virtually, we will send your pattern to you prior to the first class or you can arrange to pick it up at the store. If we are mailing it to you, early sign up is appreciated.

INSTRUCTIONS: The monthly instructions will be emailed to you on the Saturday of the class, or you can pick it up at our Ben Franklin store in Monroe, WA – (19505 Hwy 2, Monroe, WA, 98272)

Two Quilt Pattern Options:

For this year, we have decided to give you 2 quilt options. One that has a more modern feel (Traverse Block) and one that is a more traditional quilt in a springy color palette (Color Collage).  
By teaching both of these in class we hope to really help you learn new techniques. The Traverse block of the month has different techniques in each row of the quilt. Even if you are not working on that quilt, we will be going over those techniques in class and you can get some great tips for future projects. The Color Collage quilt has great techniques too, some applique, on point setting and a strata star center, things the Traverse quilt does not have. We hope that they will be something that you enjoy working on next year.
