One Saturday a month - except for August - it's CLUB SATURDAY at QP!  Three clubs happen that day (usually the third Saturday of the month) - Strip Club at 9 am, VIP (Very Inspired People) at 10:30 and Machine Embroidery Secrets at 1pm.  Everyone is invited to attend one club, two clubs or all three clubs!  Here are the details:

Strip Club at 9 am- each month we choose a new pattern to make our sample and fabrics to make our 2 1/2" strip bundles.  Bundles are for sale before club and if you pre-pay before club, you save $5!  We start showing that month's strip bundle the first week of every month so you have at least two weeks to decide.  The pattern remains a surprise until we unveil our sample at club!


  • Pre-order your Strip Club bundle (forty pre-cut 2 1/2" strips) before club and it's $39.99 or wait until you see the quilt and it's $44.99.  How could you go wrong with any bundle of 2 1/2" strips???
  • Come to club and pay our "bouncer" $5 cash at the door and you'll get your pattern for the month.  (Please bring cash because our bouncers don't take credit cards!)
  • We'll show you the quilt, give you some tips and tricks to working on it and answer any questions you might have.
  • Then the fun begins - SHOW AND TELL!  Bring show and tell and earn an extra door prize ticket (yes, we have a door prize!) for every one you bring!  We love show and tell!  Sometimes Debbie even remembers to take pictures so you may see yourself on the QP Facebook page.

September 29th, October 18th and November 15th.

You will receive a supply list when you pay for your class. If you have required supplies at home, by all means, bring them. Otherwise, we would appreciate it if you would purchase the supplies from us. We offer a 10% discount on all listed class supplies.

All students must have their own purchased pattern or book required for the class. Please help us respect the designer's right to make a living by not copying patterns or books.

For the comfort & enjoyment of everyone, please do not wear perfume or bring children or guests to class.  Also, by overwhelming student demand, our classroom is a CELL PHONE FREE ZONE.  All cell phones must be off or set to vibrate and answered outside of the classroom.

Classes will be canceled by us one week prior to the first class if insufficient enrollment, please wait to buy your materials as there will be no refund for materials bought for a class that does not "go". "No go" class tuition can be put towards another class. Class fees will only be applied to another class or refunded ONLY if you cancel your class more than 7 days before the start of class.

Class fees with national teachers are not refundable. We will try to fill your space & if we do, a store credit will be given.
