Quilts are about history and art and politics and stories and patience and beauty and community and economics and place and expression and freedom and transition and family and warmth – and love. And they’re feminized and devalued. All that is why I’m so into quilts and quiltmaking. ~ Cathy Fussell

Join us for yaloRUN's introductory quilt workshop lead by master quilter CATHY FUSSELL.


How to piece a quilt without using a pattern. Learn how to stray from the straight and narrow but still come out okay.

Workshop takes place 2 Saturdays in a row at YaloRUN, August 15th and August 22nd from 10:00 - 5:00pm* ( with an noon lunchbreak... BTC Grocery time with Chef Dixie!) You will make a machine pieced, hand-quilted quilt! You really will!

Workshop fee of $250 includes:

-- All materials and supplies** for a quilt measuring 48" x 72"

-- Anytime access all week long to YaloRUN's studio and machines. Stop in anytime during store hours for a quiet place to work. Our studio is your studio from Saturday to Saturday.

--  Access to master quilter/teacher Cathy Fussell who will be in-store all day on Wednesday for personal coaching or general reassurance if you get hung-up on a step. Or make a time-specific appointment with Cathy Fussell at any time during the week. Access to daughter-of-master-quilter, Coulter Fussell, for this same thing anytime all week long.

-- access to Cathy's extensive library of quilting books for color inspiration.

-- snacks and refreshments.

Enjoy a quilting experience that's more intuitive and less template-bound.

Beginners welcome. 

Class is also appropriate for all levels.

Only 8 spots available! Sign up/purchase on our SHOP page.

* If you can't stay the entire day then no worries. We all have obligations. Don't miss this class just because you have to take your kid to the ball field at 3pm on Saturday. You'll have studio access all week.

**Quilting hoops will be available for purchase or you can use studio hoops in-store.
