Shop Sponsored Classes

We have some wonderful shops who offer classes and workshops taught by local teachers including many Missoula Quilters' Guild members. We try to keep our EVENTS page up to date with local shop classes, but the best way to find the latest information is to visit and/or contact the shops directly. Please also register directly with shops for their classes.

Suncatcher Workshop

We are pleased to announce and host our very first Quiltworx workshop being facilitated and taught by Quiltworx Certified Instructor, VidaAnn Anderson. She has taken our collection of Tilda’s Pie in the Sky fabrics and created a custom colorway for the new Quiltworx Suncatchers pattern. Each pattern makes 3 - 30” square table toppers/wall hangings using a different combination of the same fabrics. You will create 1 block of 1 table topper in the class and learn the technique to be able to complete the rest at home.


Complete kits are available to purchase for this class in the Tilda fabrics or you can pick your own fabric. This workshop is a one-day workshop you will not want to miss. And it’s a great beginner Quiltworx pattern.


Patterns are required and available for purchase. When you sign up for this class we will send you a link to an instructional video for the prep work that must be completed prior to class.

October 7, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
