What's New @ Creekside Quiting?
We are putting together a group order for the Sunflower T-shirt Fundraiser organized by fabric designer Kate Spain with World Central Kitchen!
If you would like to be a part of our group order, submit your order by MONDAY, MARCH 21.
We will then order with Kate Spain and a portion of the profits will be donated by Kate Spain to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organization stationed at the Ukrainian-Poland border to provide meals for displaced Ukrainian families and refugees.
FAQI see that you are charging $24.50 for t-shirts but Kate Spain is only charging $24 - why?
We are creating a group order for two reasons: to help spread awareness for this fundraiser and also to save our local customers shipping costs. The extra $0.50 cents per t-shirt is to cover shipping costs we will be charged for the group order. If there are any extra funds raised during this fundraiser not spent on shipping, we will donate those funds. We have no intention of profiting off of this group order.To order your t-shirt through Creekside Quilting, click HERE

“I have taught for many years and taught a wide variety of classes. What I love most about sharing what I have learned is taking a beginner at whatever we are doing to a more confident crafter!
You CAN learn to quilt your own projects ~ let me walk you through the simple steps and show you how to chase away the “SCARE” of domestic machine free motion quilting! Pick up the simple basics of machine quilting along with tricks and techniques I have learned along the way to help you become a confident quilter! Go home with a sense of confidence and plenty of resources to begin your quilting journey! You MUST know your machine! ~ how to set your tension, lower your feed dogs, and make adjustments. Social distancing will not allow close one-on one work, but I will be there to coach you along the way!
