March's coupon gives a one time 25% discount on regular priced fabrics and sewing notions.  I have added more fabrics to those on sale.  (Some exceptions - books, magazines, patterns, embroidery thread, applique precuts.  Regular precuts are eligible.)  The coupon expires 3/31/2015.  Happy note: A coupon may be shared with a friend who is not on my mailing list.  To sign up for my mailing list, send me your email address.

* Mar.14 - Stack and Whack - I will be doing a special class on March 26th, if anyone is interested in a class during the week.

** Mar.17 Happy St.Patrick's Day!

*** Mar.19 Store Special - Not sure what it will be yet, but March 19th is my birthday, so we will have treats and a door prize drawing for anyone who shops on that day.  No, I am not going to tell you how old I am.

Mar.21 The 3rd Saturday of each month is Sew Saturday sewing quilts for charity - all hands are welcome, no fee, potluck lunch.  It does help if you let me know you are planning to attend.  Fabric donations are welcome!  This month we are sewing quilt tops for the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch's fundraising.  Come sew or cut fabric for these donated quilts.

If you are interested in attending a quilt retreat in Red Lodge at the Medicine Flower Lodge, May 14 - 17, contact Dawn Ridgeway at 406-566-2600. Cost is $180 for three nights, including meals.  She has a few openings left.

IMAGINE THAT  The new Imagine That Club is accepting members for the coming year.  Each Imagine That Club participant receives a free fat quarter of a select fabric to inspire a project, and then will work at home to create whatever they imagine from it.  An Imagine That project can be a quilt, a wall hanging, or whatever someone wants to make.  There is just one limitation:  "NO potholders, please."  Use your Imagination!  Your project can be any size and may include other fabrics as you like, but it must include at least part of the fat quarter.  (Small pieces count.)  In August or September 2015 all the participants will get together for an Unveiling Party with food, prizes, and fun.  $5 participation fee, open to anyone.

Join the sewing fun at Diana's Quilts-n-Things!

My quilting groups are friendly gatherings where you can concentrate, share, work, and learn.  My store has special equipment and work space for quilters to use, and lots of materials and patterns.  Come on in to work on your projects - where everything you need is at hand, including new techniques and experienced advice.

I offer two types of year-long subscriptions.

My Monday Club, "Diana's Quilts -n- Things Exclusive Membership Club", meets for a two-hour evening session on each Monday of every month.  The Monday Club meets outside of store hours, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  Members always get a 25% members' discount on fabrics, sewing notions, and patterns.  (Some exceptions apply: embroidery thread, post card patterns, quilt magazines, buttons, books, and applique precuts.)  Club membership is $149 for the year (an over $300 value).
    This year's projects are 12 Months of Holidays (3rd Monday), and three UFO Nights (1st, 2nd and 4th Mondays).

Or, take an all-day Saturday class once each month this year for a single $149 participation fee, plus the (discounted) cost of project kits.  In 2015, this class meets on the 4th Saturday of the month starting at 9:30am, and is themed the 12 Months of Holidays.  A different project and technique will be featured each month.  It's a great way to personalize holiday decorations and gifts!
  Individual 12 Months of Holidays class attendance without subscription costs $20, plus project materials charge.  Please let me know you want to participate, so I can have a kit ready for you.

In 2015 each 2nd Saturday of the month class will feature an individual class for a $25 fee plus the cost of project materials.  We'll start with Beginning Quilting on January 10th.


PREPARATIONS: If a club or class member is bringing a guest, or if you want to attend a single session, or if you are a class subscriber and want to switch Saturdays, please contact Diana beforehand.

1st and 2nd Saturday of the month classes do not have a subscription available.  Their fees vary by topic.  See the website Events page for my plans each month, and please call to enroll.

If you cannot make it to one of your regular sessions, or if Saturdays just don't work for you in general, please contact Diana to see if an alternate date can be set for you.


3rd Saturday of each month is Sew Saturday sewing quilts for charity - all hands are welcome, no fee, potluck.  It does help if you let me know you are planning to attend.  Fabric donations are welcome!

My Imagine That Club is an annual challenge.  Each Imagine That Club participant receives a free fat quarter of a select fabric to inspire a project, and then works at home to create whatever they imagine from it.  An Imagine That project can be a quilt, a wall hanging, or whatever someone wants to make.  There is just one limitation:  "NO potholders, please."  Use your Imagination!  Your project can be any size and may include other fabrics as you like, but it must include at least part of the fat quarter.  (Small pieces count.)  In August or September all the participants will get together for an Unveiling Party with food and prizes.  $5 participation fee, open to anyone.

If you have questions on any of these, please give me a call. (632-4861)


Saturday classes are all day classes starting at 9:30 a.m. and running until 4:30 p.m.

Spring lamb 12 Months of Holidays:
In 2014, we sewed the 12 Months of Christmas, completing easy Christmas projects including a Christmas stocking, themed wall hangings, coasters, table centers and table mats, and a mug rug.

2015's 12 Months of Holidays will include a different project each month and as many different techniques as I can think of.  Kits for the projects will be 25% off.  These quick and easy projects will help you decorate for holidays, and make seasonal gifts.
  To attend for a specific project, pay a $20 class fee, plus the cost of the kit.

January featured a Valentine's Day wall hanging, using reverse applique.
February featured a Easter project.
March features a Spring project.
April will feature a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.
May will feature a Tumbler block flag for July.
July will feature Back to School, a table runner or possible wall hanging.
August will feature a "stained glass" table runner.

This Saturday activity runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

Sew Saturday quilts for charity. Sew Saturday:
We will be sewing quilts to donate for charity fund raisers.  Some quilts will be going to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, some to Special K Ranch in Columbus, some to A Safe Place in Helena, which is for Military women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress, and others where ever else we feel they can be used.

To keep up our stamina, each Sew Saturday will feature a pot luck lunch.

3rd Saturday of each month, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Anyone is welcome.  If you can, please let me know by the day before, if you would like to participate or donate fabric.

Construction of a One Block Wonder quilt. One Block Wonder:
A One Block Wonder quilt is based on 6 layers of fabric with a 24 inch repeat.  Quilt pieces are cut with a similar technique to those of a Stack and Whack quilt, but the blocks are sewn together differently.  An example quilt on this website is #6-1052.

This class may be covered on two Saturdays.  If needed, the second Saturday's date and activities will be determined by what works for the students in the class.  The class runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

AccuQuilt logo

Quilts on this website made with the GO! Cutter are the Bugs quilt #6-1066, this geometric quilt #6-1067, and the rag quilt #6-1024.                    

GoGo Club was a Monday night club in 2010.

Detail from Progressive quilt Progressive Quilt:
There is no pattern for the progressive quilt - each person creates a quilt center from good quality 100% cotton fabric, and passes the started quilt on to another group member, who adds the next section, and so on.  When a quilt has been completed, with care from everyone in the group, it returns to the person who started it to keep.  There's a better picture of this quilt in the Gallery.

The Progressive Quilt was a Monday night club in 2011.

Scaregirl wall hanging (detail) Seasonal Club:
We enjoy making small projects related to the seasons.  Wall hangings, table runners, and other fun fabric art items make it easy to dress up our homes.

The Seasonal Club was a Monday night club in 2012.
