The Nimble Thimble keeps classes simple

 I hope you see something that looks like fun.  Samples are on display at the Nimble Thimble, and we will be glad to help you choose the class that is perfect for you. Is there a special technique or a pattern you have always wanted to try? Let us know and we will do our best to make it a class. 
Our rules are simple, too.
     * Have fun, learn something, and remember there are no mistakes in our classes...only opportunities!
     * Class space is reserved only when your fee is paid. Prices vary, but you can expect about $35 per session for a 3-4 hour class.
    * Supply lists have items required for class. Please bring what is needed, and make sure your machine is in good working condition.
    * Of course, anything you need is available at the Nimble Thimble! Class purchases are discounted 10% in addition to our rewards program.
    * We have machines for rent if you need one, just $10 per session.
    * Cancellations within 2 week of the scheduled class will result in a store credit, not a cash refund.

Come join the fun!

All the Best,
Linda

Class - Long Time Gone

Long Time Gone is a unique quilt. Marti Michell has packaged 9 packs of templates, so no measuring or thinking needed. The good thing is that the templates make all sorts of great traditional blocks, so the cost is more justifiable. (They are Sets A, B, D, N, Q, Peaky and Spike, Pineapple and both small log Cabin templates). Sandi, who teaches the class, said the templates make all your points match, and make the construction super "easy." We will do it as a template/block of the week kind of class - 15 weeks. Cost comes to $20 per class - that is for 2 hours of instruction, pattern and a template set. What a deal. The group will probably meet the first 2-3 weeks of the month with the end of the month off. Planning for all class dates will be done at the first meeting. Class offered Wednesday evenings OR Thursday mornings. Week Block 1. Bow Tie - Make 2 2. Square in a Square Stars - Make 1 3. Crosses of the U.K. - Make 6 4. Jacobs Ladder - Make 9 5. Trip Around the World - Make 1 6. Plus a Star - Make 1 7. Churn Dash (cutest block!) - Make 21 8. Courthouse Steps - Make 9 9.
