Ryco offers LOTS of fun classes and in a variety of ways. The Super Beginner classes for quilting and sewing start at the very beginning and you will finish the series with a finished project. Other classes are taught by talented teachers that run their classes within the RYCO family. You can contact them directly to schedule times and fees.

Quilting Classes


What are 3-day weekends for? Sewing and socializing, of course! Let?s get together at Ryco over the long holiday weekend, doing what we love best! We?ll set up our machines and projects at 10am on Saturday and not stop until Monday at 5pm. Okay, we?ll have to go home at the end of the day and get a good night?s sleep ? only to come back bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for another day of super-sewing! We?ll leave our machines and projects in the classroom for the whole weekend and can stay and sew as long as we like - during Ryco regular business hours. Retreats will include an optional class project, if that appeals to you, with an optional extra Cutting Day on the Friday before the retreat to get you started. You can bring your UFO?s or start something new. It?s up to you. Just imagine what you can get done in 17 hours of very happy sewing!

Cost: $ 45.00
To make this spectacular quilt you will learn to master three of her Studio 180 trim tools: the Split Rects, Tucker Trimmer, and Wing Clipper rulers. The pattern makes a throw or full size quilt, as scrappy as you like, or with a coordinated grouping of whimsical stars running diagonally through the quilt.

This is a Series of 12 Monthly Classes based on the Quilt Design by Jen Kingwell. Are you ready to embark on an out-of-the ordinary quilting adventure? Unlike other Block of the Month projects, there is no specific pattern, no hard-and-fast rules, and no kit. Your design will be organic, developing and changing as you go along. There are so many possibilities, limited only by your imagination and sense of adventure. Every month we?ll have a 3-hour class with plenty of time to sew, experiment with color and rehearse your ideas on the design wall. If you?re timid, don?t worry - there will be plenty of instruction, suggestions, different techniques to learn, templates to follow, guidelines and sharing of ideas and patterns. At the end of your 12-month journey, you?ll be amazed at what you?ve done! You will have made an incredible quilt -- your own personal, one-of-a-kind creation. The only requirements are your energy, imagination, patience with the creative process and adventurous spirit! 2 Payment Options: (Paid in Advance): $100 for 6 months (Due 10/26 & 3/21) Or $175/year (due 10/26)

Strings are all those leftover fabric strips and pieces that float around everyones sewing room. To make a string quilt, you start with a foundation fabric or foundation paper, then use an easy sew-and-flip technique to attach strips and scraps to the foundation until the scraps completely cover the foundation. That’s all there is to it! There’s no fussy measuring, no precision cutting, no pattern to worry about, no templates to follow. Each block comes out different, but combined makes for a great quilt that looks surprisingly put-together!

Cost: $ 20.00
We?ll use a quick and easy Stack ?n Slash technique to make a quilt full of whimsical dancing stars and swirling pinwheels. The design is quick and simple to make, with a few cuts and a few switcheroos. The blocks are then re-combined ? and this is the best part ? with no need to match seams within the blocks! There is also a Patriotic Stars version included, in a red, white and blue color scheme - perfect for a Quilts of Valor project.

Cost: $ 20.00
I call my version Tabby Triangles - variation of Tula Pink's Tabby Mountain. The original pattern is a download. I made mine w/scraps + Kona solids. Tool the small or large 30 degree triangle ruler. My version uses the small. Original the large. Students can choose to make any size triangles with a little tweaking.

Cost: $ 25.00
This table runner will look perfect on your Christmas table or make a great gift. The wedding ring arcs are easy with a strip-piecing technique on pre-printed foundation papers. The rings are finished with curved piecing. This design works well with your Christmas fabric scraps or a more planned version using a Christmas collection you have had your eye on.
