  • The Gathering in 2022 is being held in two five-month time-slots: Gathering time-slot-1 was in January-thru-May and Gathering time-slot-2 is in August-thru-December. January-thru-May's project was a Blooming 9-Patch. The August-thru-December project is participant's choice of selected patterns from the book: Urban Quilting By Wendy Chow; there will be a $50 fee for the August -thru- December Gathering as was the case for January-thru-May.

    The 2022 Daytime Gathering is taking place monthly and is held at the Raleigh store's BERNINA Studio:

    • The third Tuesday of the month, 10:30am - 4:00pm.
  • The Evening Gathering in 2022 is being held monthly throughout the year. The Evening Gathering's projects are using patterns from the calendar: the ART of the QUILT 2022 By Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr of Modern Quilt Studio. There will be a $50 fee for the year.

    The 2022 Evening Gathering is taking place monthly and is held at the Raleigh store's BERNINA Studio:

    • The second Monday of the month, 5:00pm - 8:30pm.

For participating in the Gathering, you are reminded that:

  • The Gathering participants purchase, from our store, books or other patterns chosen to be part of the Gatherings and the fabric needed for quilts created during the Gatherings..

  • The Gathering participant, by joining the Gathering, is making a commitment to make a solid effort at completing the Gathering project for that five-month period.

  • For the 2022 Gatherings, the January-thru-May and the August thru December fee are each $50. The fee is non-refundable once charged.

  • Gathering participants should have experience in sewing and in making quilts.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class, although Sonja will be available to assist during the five-month Gathering session.

  • The store will not be able to arrange and set-up class machines for use during the Gatherings. Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants will not be accommodated. Sorry!

Further information will be available on this Webpage and via eMail sent to Gathering participants.

The Gatherings are normally over-subscribed. If you wish more information about participating in the monthly Daytime (third Tuesday) or Evening (second Monday) Gatherings, stop by the store and ask for Sonja (she will know of the matter) or:
