Hi, I’m Rachelle Craig and I’d love to share my passion for sewing and quilt making with YOU!

I currently offer local* in-person classes for all of my current quilt patterns plus a Beginner Quilting course and a Beginner Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) course. (*Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota area)

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or if you have suggestions for upcoming courses or workshops!

This versatile trio of quilted scarves is a fashionable way to use your treasured fabrics. Use yardage, fat quarters, orphan blocks, precuts, or scraps to create a wearable work of art. Use pieces of backing and batting leftover from previous projects to increase sustainability!
