Skill level suggestions when taking classes at 3 Hens and A Chick Quilt Shop.  

Beginning in January 2021, teachers are adding suggested Skill Levels to our classes.  These are the guidelines to follow when choosing a class:

  • Basic Beginner - has knowledge of sewing machine, knows how to thread machine and wind a bobbin and has desire to learn quilting
  • Skilled Beginner - has experience sewing with their machine; understands quilting terms like: rotary cutter, quarter-inch seam, binding, can read and understand quilting patterns and has desire to try new techniques
  • Intermediate - has quilted several years or has sewn several quilting projects, has attended classes on quilting; seam allowances and block sizes are becoming more accurate, and you are willing to try more advanced techniques in quilting
  • Advanced - All beginner and intermediate skills above are mastered, you are up for the next challenge of learning more difficult techniques, and you are still learning and growing 
  • As of January, 2023 our class policy will be as follows.
  • All students unable to attend a class must give a 48-hour notice or will forfeit the class fee.
  • If the minimum required students set by the teacher is not met, class will be canceled within 48 hours, and students will have the option of refund or store credit.
