Thank you for your contributions again this year to the Alliston Lion’s Christmas hamper program.

Row By Row:  Thank you for another great year of meeting and chatting with quilters on this quest.  We certainly enjoyed hearing your adventures.  This event is on hiatus now.  We will be selling kits when the break is over.

Row by Row Kits are available for sale.  We also have Timeless Treasures Row by Row fabric, license plates and Row by Row quilt hangers.  Click here to view the selection Row by Row.



Basic Sewing kit for most workshops:  sewing machine in good working order, sewing machine manual, thread, thread scissors, seam ripper just in case, tape measure, bobbins filled and ready to go, pattern, fabric, notebook, and pen.

Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled time.  It may interfere with other activities in the workshop area.  Also it gives us time to make the coffee and tea and set up for your activity.  We appreciate your enthusiasm and will very much appreciate you thinking of us setting up for You

Learn to Quilt:  There is a new year starting and maybe you said you wanted to learn a new skill.  Join us Wed. afternoons to learn the basics and make a quilt from beginning to end.  We will start at the basics of quilt making BUT you MUST know how to work your sewing machine BEFORE you enroll.  If you have a sewing machine that has been sitting and not being used, get it serviced and learn how it works.  That will take a LOT of the STING out of learning how to quilt.  8 week workshop beginning Wed. January. 19th,  1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Workshop fee $100.00 additional cost for materials and notions as required.

Super Bowl Sunday:  A tradition at The Lane, come and sew for a charity.  We won’t be watching football but you can bet we will have the snacks.  This year we are going to see if we can turn tee shirts into bags and fabric into handy lap covers for people in wheelchairs.  Bring fabric if you like but there will be fabric available, imagine that.  11:00 – 3:00 Sunday Feb. 5.

Paper Piecing Part 2:  Join Carl and see the wonders of paper piecing.  Sat. Jan. 21st and Sat. Feb. 25 10:00 – 4:00 Workshop fee $60.00

Tessellating Windmills:  Using Marti Michell’s instruction booklet and template you can create a wonderful pinwheel quilt with some interesting results.  The template is multi sizes so you are limited only by your own preference.  Workshop fee $45.00 Sat. Feb. 18th  10:00 a.m. – 4:00p.m.

Mom and Me Aprons:  When it is time to get into the kitchen and maybe it is a multi-generational gathering, this apron will make the day even more memorable.  Join us Sat. March 11th and make something for yourself, a friend, a little friend or a hostess gift.   Easter will be here before you know it.  10:00 – 4:00 Workshop fee $45.00


BLOCK OF EVERY OTHER WEEK:  A few changes this time around.  The votes were counted and we are doing Celtic Crystals.  The pattern is $45.00.   Finished size is 84” X 84”. We will be meeting every otherish Sunday at 10:00 a.m. starting in Oct.16th, Oct. 30th, Nov 13th, Nov. 27th and Dec. 11th.  (Next dates will be determined when Liz buys her new calendar.  She is so excited about that!) Club fee is $15.00.  When we meet, if you have your previous meeting’s work completed your name will go into a draw.  Each meeting three names will be drawn and those people will win $10 BOEOW Bucks.  Those bucks are to be spent that day on regular priced merchandise. Even though, we have had our first meeting, you still have time to join in the fun and learning.  Those quilters be crazy on a Sunday morning!
