This is a monthly gathering for quilters who want to work in a space free from the distractions of home -- no pets, no kids, no external responsibilities! Just you and your sewing machine and some friendly, like-minded people. Experienced quilt teacher Barbara Ramsey will be there to answer questions, assist with projects, and demonstrate useful techniques, but this is not a formal classroom environment and Barbara will not be following any lesson plans (she'll just be there as a resource if you need her!).

Open Sew & Quilt welcomes participants with a broad range of skill levels: those who have mastered their craft, folks who are just beginning to think about composition in their quilts, and everyone in between. Together we will find inspiration from one another, meaningful and supportive feedback, and build community in the process. Just bring your project(s) and your machine; irons and ironing boards provided.


  • Sewing machine with supplies (thread, scissors, pins, etc).
  • Cutting equipment (rotary cutter, self-healing mat, cutting rulers of various sizes).
  • Any work(s) in progress you are currently taking on!
  • Free fabric will be available for those students who want to experiment with new techniques and don't have sufficient fabric of their own.

After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal, including course syllabus and supply information. Learn more

Barbara Ramsey has been a professional quilter for 20 years; her work has been shown at multiple venues in Washington, California, and New York. She has 15 years of quilt teaching experience, with a very participatory, student-focused style aimed at helping people become more confident in their work. She loves to help others as they move from traditional designs to more free-form creations. Barbara feels energized as she watches students learn to improvise with shape and line, create surprising color combos, and gain the confidence to do original work.
