Loving God and neighbor without distinction: A pontifical institute of women religious of the Roman Catholic Church


Sew Creative adds intermediate and quilting classes

Sew Creative will begin the new year with two new free classes for people who have basic skills and want to learn more.

Sew Creative-Intermediate is an eight-week class that begins Wednesday, Jan. 11. The classes will be from 1 to 3:30 p.m., and childcare will be available.

Students need to have basic sewing skills and some experience using a sewing machine. In the class they will choose a store-bought pattern, and then will learn the skills needed to complete it.

Patterns, fabric and other notions — as well as childcare — are all provided free.

The other new offering is for people who want to learn the basics of quilting.

Volunteers Linda Ricke and Rhonda Martin are coming from their homes in Florida to teach two four-week classes.

They begin Tuesday, Jan. 10, and will be on Tuesday and Thursdays through Feb. 2. Students may choose either the morning (from 9-11:30 a.m.) or evening session (6-8:30 p.m.).

In the class, students will learn basic quilting techniques as they create a six-block sampler quilt.

Childcare may be available if needed.

All materials will be provided free, but students will be expected to bring their own basic sewing tools. A list will be provided at registration.

Beginning Feb. 8, Sew Creative will again offer its free eight-week basic sewing class. That class begins with the basics and is designed for people with no sewing experience.

It will meet from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and childcare will be available.

Registration is required for all Sew Creative offerings, and class size is limited so early signups are encouraged.

To register for any of these classes, contact Kathleen Norman at 243-2113, ext. 1215, or

Sew Creative is presented by Neighborhood Initiatives, an office of the Sisters of St. Joseph, and all classes meet at the Cloud County Event Center (formerly Club 81), 105 W. Seventh St., in downtown Concordia.
