Offer the same class TWICE!
You might think it makes more sense to offer two different classes, but from the way I hear it from time to time, there are those that would sign up for BOTH classes, leaving not enough room in either for some that would want to attend….
No one is going to take the same class two days in a row, so that enables twice the amount of people to take the class –get it? Makes sense to me!
So yesterday was group #1 for Strip Twist, and today we will get to meet with group #2! Lather, rinse, repeat – later, rinse, repeat! To a whole new group of Quilters ---
Because it was Sunday, and the church that is usually the meeting place was occupied, we were able to get the recreation room where one of the members lives ---a really nice retirement community. The room was beautiful – big windows, lots of light, kitchen area for snacks, etc ---and what did we do? Blew the power within the first 10 minutes..LOL
I guess they’d never seen the likes of quilters like us before! We were able to get power back after a while and continued on our merry way, sewing strip sets , pressing strip sets, and cutting them into matched triangle pairs.
You really Can get a lot done in one class…just look at this photo!
How’s that for perspective?!
You can see my quilt hanging in the basckground. Strip Twist is one of the free patterns you will find at the top of the blog by clicking the free patterns tab.
Look at this little set up!
This custom made folding table was found at an estate sale for all over $17.50 It’s the perfect retreat table for this handsome 301A!
And this special treat was the hit of the day:
Spools and machines and scissors ((to cut the calories in half!!)) There was not a single cookie left by the end of class time – aren’t these cute?
