Q

uilters’ Schoolhouse is for those who wish to expand their quilting skills.

One benefit of being a BBQ member is the opportunity to register for Schoolhouse classes! These classes cover a variety of techniques and are usually taught by fellow BBQ members or local experts to promote the art and the love of quilting. Because the classes are supplemented by the guild, the registration cost for most classes is just $15, plus varying supply costs.

Classes are typically held at Boise Rigging Supply on the last Saturday of the month.
