For Beginners!

Our Beginning Quilting Class is 6-part series in which you will learn to make a quilt from "start-to-finish".  We teach you the skills you need to make beautiful quilts and other pieced quilt projects. Class size is limited to 10, so call to reserve your spot in the class.


This beautiful Row By Row quilt was made by Marcy Ahrons from Newcastle.  Marcy was the first quilter to finish and bring in a completed Row By Row quilt to The Whistle Stop Quilt Shop so she has won a 25 fat quarter tower plus an additional prize from
The Whistle Stop for including our row in her quilt. 
Congratulations Marcy!!
