What is Potpourri?

Potpourri is a combination of things that have nothing in common. 

Potpourri at The Quilting Needle is a set of courses offered each quarter, but there’s no homework or prep work! Each month will be featuring a technique or instruction that course members will learn hands-on. Courses will be approximately 1.5 hours long, please plan your time accordingly.
*Not all, but some courses may have a small kit fee.*

Potpourri fee is $25 per quarter

Your $25 fee secures your spot for the three monthly quarterly courses.
There will be a Monday @5:30pm or Wednesday @11am option to participate for the month. 
You will receive 10% off purchases made on your class days.
You will get a 20% off discount on all of the featured items for that quarter.
*Some exclusions apply*

For each course you attend, you will receive a raffle ticket for a drawing to be held at the end of each quarter. Kit prices for each month will vary depending on the project or technique. This will be a separate fee.

The instructor leading each class will vary from all the talent here at The Quilting Needle.
