Register for a day of quilting education and entertainment to learn about the latest trends and techniques, tools and technology.  Choose from multiple subjects taught simultaneously, and decide what you most want to learn!   Class topics are divided into three types:

  • Educational topics will cover the fundamentals of quilting
  • Technique sessions will show different methods to develop your quilting skills.
  • Product classes will demonstrate how the latest tools and notions can make your quilting easier and more accurate.

Doors  will open at 8:30 am.  You will receive your Schoolhouse booklet when you arrive, so come early and allow yourself some time to look at the class options and fill out your schedule for the day.  Your Schoolhouse booklet will list the full selection of classes, including times, instructors and topics.  In the booklet there will also be a page to help you plan your day.  Each session is held in its’ own classroom with presentations by a variety of nationally and locally known educators, artists and quilt business personalities.

Your Schoolhouse registration will include lunch catered by Sauder Village and you may choose to eat in either of the two lunch sessions, we’ll leave the timing of your lunch break up to you.
