New Skills for All Skill Levels

 

Whether it's your first time in front of a sewing machine or your 50th year in the hobby, we have a class for you. Our friends come from all over Atlanta and Georgia to learn how to master the basics, work with different fabric and patterns, and enjoy a good chat session.

Here are some things you can learn in our classes:

  • How to sew basic and advanced stitches
  • Embroidery and decorative stitching for a quilt or garment
  • How to read and follow a pattern from start to finish
  • Using different materials in quilts and clothing
  • Getting the most out of your notions and accessories

Learning more about quilting is really fun in a class environment. Beginners can learn from those who have been threading needles for many years. We love sharing knowledge and tips to help everyone enjoy quilting even more.

   

Friendly Instructors and Members

 

Our groups love to come together to help everyone finish a project. We even have a PhD group - that's "Project Half Done!" The hosts and leaders teach new skills and provide encouragement to help you start and finish your quilts.

Our classes are perfect for asking questions so you can get great results right from the beginning. The teacher will help you get started, choose a good project if you don't already have one, and offer you tips and support so everything comes together beautifully.

Moreover, our teachers regularly attend seminars and workshops themselves to remain updated with the latest quilting techniques. They often invite guest instructors, recognized in the quilting community, to share their expertise. Frequent potluck dinners and community events further solidify the bond among members, making every class feel like a gathering of close friends.

   

All Classes are Hosted at our Store Near Marietta, GA

 

Cottontail Quilt Shop is in Kennesaw, which is just outside Marietta, GA, and about half an hour from downtown Atlanta. All our classes are in person, so everyone can chat, look around the shop, and relax in a space designed for quilting.

There is a cost to join most of our classes. You can find a complete description of each class on the calendar. If you have all your supplies, that's great! If you need some fabric, notions, or other items, many of these can be purchased in the store. Furthermore, our store boasts a vast collection of fabrics, patterns, and quilting tools, carefully curated from around the world. Monthly sales events and loyalty programs ensure that students can procure the best materials at competitive prices.

We also host yearly quilting retreats, where students can immerse themselves in quilting, away from the daily hustle and bustle. Our in-house cafe serves refreshments, making it an ideal spot for quilters to discuss projects over a cup of tea.
