The Museum Center at Five Points will not only be showcasing the very best quilting in the region, but will also going to be offering a variety of Saturday classes for adults and children!

If you want to learn the basics of quilting, come by on Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. and learn beginning quilting with Mary Lou Woods. Children and adults ages 8 and older are invited to learn the art of quilting by creating a patchwork potholder. Class is $10 for members and $12 for nonmembers.

The Museum Center will hold a class, also, on making quilted trivets on Feb. 16. Participants will learn how to make Ruth Hale’s famous and surprisingly easy-to-make trivets.

All the supplies are included to make your first trivet and you can take home patterns to make these great creations on your own! Class starts at 10 a.m. and is $8 members and $10 for nonmembers.

For fans of vintage Singer Featherweight sewing machines, the Museum Center is offering a discussion with Stan Pegram, who repairs the machines. Stan will share some easy-to-learn tips and techniques.

After the discussion, there will be a swap meet. If you have a Featherweight and you want to sell, trade, or even buy, you will want to register for this class.

The workshop will be on Feb. 23 at 10 a.m. and is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

Accurate cutting is key to a beautiful quilt, so come by the Museum Center and learn about Precision Cutting with Susan Hyder on March 2. Class starts at 11 a.m. and is $8 members and $10 for nonmembers.

Learn how to use many of the tools that are out there to make your fabric cutting easier and more precise.

You will discover how to use rotary cutters safely and accurately, explore Accuquilt, Sizzix and other die-cutting systems, and go over specialty rulers.

All classes require reservations and prepayment.
