If you are a quilter, we invite you to Sit on It!—where quilting meets upholstery in a delightful fusion of creativity and comfort. As a seasoned quilter, you have likely created numerous cozy quilts to snuggle under. Now, it is time to extend that warmth to your seating with our innovative workshop.


Join us as we transform a simple stool into a stylish and unique piece of furniture using basic piecing techniques reminiscent of traditional quilting. Discover the art of beginning upholstery as you learn to create a quilt-like top for your stool, infusing it with charm and personality.


No matter your skill level, everyone is welcome to participate in this exciting project. Whether you are a quilting novice or an experienced enthusiast, you will leave the class with a finished stool that reflects your individual style and craftsmanship—ready to be showcased and admired in any space.


No prior upholstery knowledge is required—just bring your enthusiasm and creativity and get ready for an inspiring journey together!
