    The local Sew and Vac store is having "Scrap Therapy" classes for which they charge $25. Then they have more classes to use these scraps for which there is another charge.

    Has anyone taken these classes? Are they worth the time and money?

    As far as I can figure it out, you take your scraps and they tell you what sizes to cut them, don't know for sure, that's why I'm asking. :lol:

    Call the local sew and vac and ask them.. Then be sure to TELL all of us what you found out. Heck! I can cut my own squares, etc but I still may need the THERAPY part! lol!

    I would go to quiltville.com before I'd pay $25 for the "class" and then more money for additional classes. Bonnie(quiltville) is probably the best on scraps. My opinion.

    Here's the website for "quilt therapy":

    http://www.quilt-therapy.com/classes.html

    As for "needing" to take this class, it doesn't qualify in that category for me. In the good old days when the economy was better I would have considered it because it's always more fun to do things like that in a group setting. Now I know it's more of a "would be nice to do" luxury -- for me, anyway.

    Borntoquilt: I made 2 calls, talked to 3 people and an answering machine. Those 3 people couldn't answer my question, and the answering machine hasn't called me back. :lol: :lol:

    So I checked the net and found:

    http://www.scrap-therapy.com/

    Shemjo: Sounds like it may help someone with "a lot" of scraps. :)

    pocoellie and Prism99: After reading the above site and checking out their quilted projects, I think I could go to quiltville.com, pick a pattern and cut my scraps to the size needed and save my $25, and whatever they charge for the next classes and patterns. Of course, there's always the (group) THERAPY part - that could be a good thing, but we have that right here, don't we??

    CRH - thanks for taking the time to research for us. AFter looking at web site I think it would be just as fun to get together with some friends and "cut up" all thos scraps. Sure there wuld be some "therapy" in ther somewhere. Some of those quilts patterns looked pretty cool tho! So, what do you suppose the 3 size squares were????? :wink:
