See pictures of class samples in the Class Gallery.
Class descriptions indicate how much experience is required to get the most out of the class.

Quilting and Small Project Classes are offered at a variety of levels.  These levels are defined accordingly: 

Beginner

  • Little or no quilting experience
  • Must know how to thread and use your machine.  Machine mastery is not necessary.  If you do not have any experience with your machine, register for a "Learn to use Your Machine" class.

Confident Beginner:

  • Can operate sewing machine
  • Familiar with using rotary cutter and can cut accurately
  • Understands the importance of and can sew an accurate 1/4" seam for Quilting Classes
  • Has taken Quilting 101

Intermediate:

  • Has pieced several tops
  • Understands the importance of and can sew an accurate ¼” seam
  • Has experience with half-square triangles and bias edges
  • Is looking for a new quilting experience or challenge.


Garment Classes

All garment class participants need to know how to thread their sewing machines and/or overlock machines confidently. 

"Learn to Use Your Machine" class is offered at RainTree the last week of most months; this class provides the beginner with basic sewing machine skills.  It is a recommended prerequisite.  Other possible prerequisites are:  "Learn to Thread Your Serger" (if you own a serger).

Seminars

Seminars are 2 - hour events hosted in one of our classrooms.  You will need no supplies!  The instructor will typically demonstrate and facilitate discussions about the selected topic.  The object is to offer enough instruction so participants can refresh their knowledge or consider taking classes to learn more about the topic.

BERNINA Academy events occur occasionally on our schedule.  These events are highly recommended to all.

General Class Policies


  1. Class fee is required to register. The supply list is provided at the time of registration.  If you register online you will still need to pick up a class supply list at the store.

Copyright Policy


Many classes offered at RainTree require the purchase of a book or pattern. If a class is taught from a book or pattern, the quilt shop and teacher must require that each student have a copy of that book or pattern. Copying a pattern without permission is a violation of copyright law and denies the copyright holder, usually the author or pattern designer, from benefiting from their hard work. To help cut down on your class costs, RainTree offers a 10 percent discount on all books required for a quilt class taught at the store.
