The Old Country Store offers a wide selection of sewing and quilting classes, including project and technique instruction for all levels.
The Classroom is located one building east of The Old Country Store with plenty of available parking in the rear and easy access to the first floor classroom.
The Classroom is outfitted with Bernina sewing machines or students are welcome to bring their own machine from home. There are four classroom irons and ironing boards, as well as a large cutting table and design wall for general use.
Class size is limited to twelve persons, and classroom seats are filled in the order of receipt, so sign up early for the best seats!
Our teachers have a wealth of experience and are eager to share their knowledge and insider tips for success in sewing. Their goal is to make learning fun and inspire students toward further sewing.
Sewing machines are provided by Hinkletown Sewing, our local Bernina dealership, known for exceptional customer service, qualified machine maintenance, and great prices. Be sure to allow time to visit Hinkletown Sewing when you’re here for a class. Their showroom is less than 9 miles from The Old Country Store.
Students attending all-day classes will find a variety of nearby food options or may choose to bring lunch along to eat in the classroom. A refrigerator, microwave, and hot/cold water cooler are provided.
Color and design instruction
Techniques classes range from zipper installation, hand-quilting how-to, needle-turned applique, finishing edges, learning to use your sewing machine feet, machine quilting, and more.

We will gladly prepare a custom class for you and your friends! If you have a date you’ll be in the area or have a topic you’d like private instruction on, please be in touch via The Old Country Store Contact Us page. We’d love to hear from you!
Kids’ classes are popular for children ages 10-14 years. A grandma, parent, or guardian is welcome to stay and sit with the student during the class. We love to cultivate the next generation of quilters!
